Internship process at the WSGE

In accordance with WSGE Study Regulations and WSGE Rules of Student’s Obligatory Internship, the obligation to undergo the internship occurs when it is a part of the study programme. In such case students may receive support from Career Services Office in terms of its organizing (finding the right company/institution). Completing the Internship is also recorded in the Diploma Supplement as "additional information" to the progress of study.

The Obligatory Internship is awarded by ECTS points. Not completing the Internship means that the student cannot complete the semester and whole study programme – so without completing the internship it is not possible to obtain the diploma.

The minimum amount of hours of internship is:

  • Bachelor level -
    • 240 hours completed by the end of 6th semester (students who began ther studies before 1st October 2015)
    • 360 hours completed by the end of 6th semester (students who began ther studies after 1st October 2015)
  • Master level - 240 hours completed by the end of 2nd & 4th semesters - in total 480 hours

As internships are a part of your study programs you will not be moved to the higher semester without completing the internship.

In any questions please ask the International Career Services Office.
