The Internship as Work Experience
Finding the right internship or career path is not easy. With the many possibilities opening up in the media field, there is no unique recipe. Every professional field has its own special requirements, challenges, work methods and content.
The study programmes at DEKRA | Hochschule für Medien are designed to give students a broad foundation for the everyday requirements of professional life. Yet in the media industry the best technical skills are worthless without the necessary network. The purpose of the internship is therefore not only to try out a professional job, but also to start building up your own network. This should ensure an easier start in your professional life.
Assistance from our university
In order not to abandon our students when it comes to the large challenges they face when starting off their careers, DEKRA Hochschule für Medien offers a Career Service which serves as a contact point for all questions around internship and career starts. Aside from this, we host an annual get-together, where company representatives and students can meet and interact.
The Bachelor internship may also be undertaken outside of Germany. In these cases, we can support our students through scholarships from the ERASMUS+ programme (Europe-wide) and the PROMOS programme (outside of Europe).
Our Career Service offers:
- Seminars and individual consultations for career planing and identifying your goals
- Practical help in writing professional applications
- Internship offers both inside and outside of Germany
We have close contacts in the media industry in Berlin as well as further afield. We keep our eyes and ears open for our students and regularly publish new internship and job offers on the Online Campus and, of course on the "Bulletin Board".
Besides this, we have regular events around the theme of career orientation. Company representatives come to the university, introduce their companies and converse with students. For the date of the next networking event and "Dein Beruf kommt zu uns" - Meet the Industry, click here.
PROMOS and ERASMUS+
Since 2014 DEKRA | Hochschule für Medien has been able to organise student residencies in non-European countries. This is possible for study trips (e.g. Bachelor thesis research) and internships. Any high achieving student with a completed application may apply for this.
The PROMOS application form can be found on the Online Campus under Downloads.
Information about application for a PROMOS scholarship is obtainable from Dr. Friederike Frach at Career Services.
The PROMOS scholarship from DAAD is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung - BMBF)
Since 2015 DEKRA | Hochschule für Medien has been able to facilitate scholarships for students for 3-month internships in EU countries outside of Germany.
Your first point of contact for information on applying for an ERASMUS+ scholarship and questions related to the internship is Dr. Friederike Frach, Director of career services.
Any DEKRA Hochschule für Medien student or graduate (in their first year after graduation) can apply for an ERASMUS+ scholarship.
