Graduate Students with sufficient German proficiency (i.e. MS III or Oberstufe) and possibly also highly qualified undergraduate students have the opportunity to complete an internship during the semester break in February or, in some cases, during the summer term (March-June). Internships give you the opportunity to gain experience in the German-language job market, which can improve your career prospects. Our internships also count as a course. You can receive up to 3 credit hours upon completion of the internship, depending upon the number of hours worked.

ORF (Austrian Public Television) - assistant (2), 4-5 weeks in Feb.
