Semester on Leave for Internship/s

Conditions of Issuance

The prerequisite for endorsement is that the applicant can submit written proof of an internship period of, as a rule, four months within the planned semester on leave, e.g. by presenting a copy of the pertinent contract. This criterion is also fulfilled by the completion of several internships.

The Faculty endorses a semester on leave for internship/s once during a student’s course of studies; hence, repeated issuance of the Certificate is not permitted. During a semester on leave, students cannot take any exams or attain other achievements at the WiSo Facult. Please note: the amount of semesters is not stated on your official degree certificate.
