This page provides some answers to frequently asked questions concerning the mandatory internship (BPS) and master thesis.


The duration of the BPS internship should be between 19 and 26 weeks (6 month). This means, that any duration in this range is considered to be a mandatory internship ("Pflichtpraktikum").

The duration of the Masterthesis is 6 month.

Visum / Working Permit

Both, the BPS internship and the master thesis are mandatory components of the study program and therefore are not considered as work ("Erwerbstätigkeit"). This means, that any working limitation (typically 90 days per year) is not considered for the BPS and master thesis.
