External Internship (180 h workload):

The ‘External Internship’ is a min. 180h workload stay in companies, consultancies, international development organizations or research institutes, normally outside Oldenburg University. Students perform one or several tasks related to the activities/business of the respective host organization in accordance with professional requirements. The training can be performed as full time stay during the semester breaks or spreading the workload for longer time besides regular class periods. The internship can either help to prepare for the six-month Master Thesis Project or be used as a supplementary or complementary experience in an additional field of interest. Organisations that take PPRE students for an internship may have their own regulations with respect to internships, which apply in any case. The external Internship is concluded by a short reflection portfolio on the professional experience.

The University of Oldenburg requests to fulfil a few requirements for the internship:

·         A proof of the workload performed by the student. A working contract or confirmation
          letter by the supervisor at the host institution are suitable documents for this aim.

·         A short feedback by the local supervisor about the performance of the student during the
          internship is recommended, but not compulsory


Internship Seminar (90 h workload):

·         Presentation (max. 20 minutes) of the host organization, the task(s) performed. Main focus
          of the presentation are the lessons learned and experiences during the internship from the
         perspective of own career development: e.g. soft-skills, team-working competences, own
         presentation and own role within the team and project, project and time management.

-        Students are asked to hand in assignments reflecting on their internship, comprising a
          description of the host organization, planned and performed tasks, perspectives for a thesis
