Information on Internships During Studies
The studies at the design department are complemented by specialised internships, which are registered with and supervised by teachers of the department. Internships help to prepare students for their future professional field of activity and provide a realistic idea of the professional reality and the possibilities of the intended professional field.
Requirements & Remuneration
The remuneration should not fall below the legal minimum wage.
