Internships are indispensable in preparing for a later career. In the Master’s degree programmes of the Faculty of Architecture, too, the compulsory six-month internship opens up valuable insights into the variety of possible professional fields for which the study of architecture or urban planning prepares students. Under the title “Praktikumsgeflüster” (internship whisper), a significant wealth of knowledge is to be raised and made accessible. Guided by concrete questions, students of the Master’s degree programmes are to be given the opportunity to share their knowledge of practical professional experience with students of the Bachelor’s degree programme. Once a month, interested students gather in front of a mobile stage that frames the “intern canapé”. The invited guest, a former intern, sits there, is interviewed by student interviewees and reports on her or his practical experience.
