Students often spend their internship in Europe, the United States or in Asia.

The internship is a compulsory element of the degree programme. Consequently the Bachelor’s degree programme incorporates an internship in a design studio or the design department of a company in the sixth semester. It covers a period of at least 15 weeks and can be undertaken either in Austria or abroad. Students are required to write a report on their internship.
