- Study abroad
Students of the Master's program have the opportunity to study abroad. Such a project is supported by the International Office of Hof University, among other things, by arranging scholarships and study places at one of the numerous partner universities.
The study abroad is ideally carried out after the second semester during a semester off. At this point, the theoretical education at Hof University is typically completed, so that the question of the creditability of study and examination achievements made abroad does not arise in principle. The semester of leave is not counted in the calculation of the duration of studies. This means that it does not have a negative effect on any BAföG entitlement.
2. Internship abroad
Another option for gaining international experience is practical work in foreign companies, associations and authorities. The internship abroad can be completed without loss of time in the third semester, i.e. after completion of the theoretical Master's program. It is credited to the compulsory internship of the Master's program, as far as it essentially corresponds to it in content, scope and requirements.
3. Language courses
To enhance foreign language competence, the Center for Languages and Intercultural Competence at Hof University offers a wide range of courses in different languages and at different levels.
The English courses "Managing Human Resources" (summer semester) and "Anglo-American Negotiations" (winter semester) are especially recommended for students of the Master's program "Human Resources and Work". These courses are aligned with the content of the Master's program. A time slot is kept free for them in the schedule of the Master's program.
