The internship - for example in a company that deals with Eastern Europe or in a business situated in Eastern Europe - should last six weeks. Some East European relevance of the place is essential. The date can be chosen freely, but it is best for the internship to occur between the first and the second year of studies. The Institute for East European Studies' internship agency will help with placement.
If for any reason an internship cannot be realized, the completion of a project can count as an alternative. A subject has to be analyzed from various angles. A project report should be made available for all students.
