Placements / Work Experience

Industrial placements (Vorpraktikum)

Most Universities of Applied Sciences require a certificate attesting to completion of an industrial placement / work experience before you can enroll in their natural science, engineering or technology courses.

Placements or previous work experience are not usually required for business study courses.

Please contact the university of your choice to find out if previous work experience is required or not. Required placements vary in duration and content.

No previous placements are required at the Hochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten and at the Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart.


When to do the placement

Studienkolleg students can do placements in Germany in the holidays between terms one and two.
