  • Fill in the application for recognition of your internship.
  • Enclose a copy of your internship certificate with a statement on days of absence (vacation, illness, bridge and retreat days), even if none have accrued. Public holidays do not count as days off. Absence days must be reworked. You only have to show the original of the certificate when you hand it in.
  • Write a work placement report of one and a half to two pages per week of work placement to be recognised, which is stamped and signed by the company supervisor on each page (pre-study placement) or on the first or last page (specialist placement). For the pre-internship please use the download below. In the specialized internship you write a coherent report about the whole period, no weekly reports.
