You can make your internships a challenging and diverse learning experience. Internship Coordinators are ready to guide you. At least one internship needs to be done abroad. Internship 1 is in the second year and lasts 10 weeks; internship 2 is in the fourth year and lasts 20 weeks. Often the second internship is an important step towards finding your first job after graduation!

HU also has an international teaching staff. During your study you will have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester and go abroad for your work placement.

Due to small classes you will experience sufficient individual supervision. Coaches help you with your study or personal problems, work placement preparation or study planning. In the first year you will also have a personal buddy coach who helps you find your way around HU and in the city.
HU offers special programmes for motivated and talented students. In the HU Honours programme you will have the opportunity to extend your knowledge and study particular areas in greater depth. You can do this by completing the full Honours Programme, or by following an additional course or an additionally challenging internship.

For students with a pre university high school diploma (A-level), IBMS offers a three year fast track programme.
