 Internships and Jobs

There is no mandatory internship in our Master's program. During the breaks, however, many of our students complete an internship, which is often a door opener for later trainee and permanent positions. Thanks to our excellent network of local and international companies, we are happy to support you in finding challenging internships. Also check our Websites for current offers.

 Voluntary Commitment

A number of student organisations have established themselves in the environment of the University of Innsbruck, which offer an exciting break from studying and in which you can voluntarily get involved. In addition, a number of exciting lecture series take place at the University of Innsbruck over the course of the semester, which offer a look beyond the limits of your own studies - certainly an advantage that only a full university like the University of Innsbruck can offer you!
