Course of studies

Land Management and Land Tenure (Executive)



The four week internship - taking place between the first and second semester - provides students with the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge within the frame of the work of public and private institutions dealing with land management in Germany or abroad. Students are therefore acquainted with procedures and processes carried out by institutions dealing with land management. Also, they get the opportunity to get practical experience in the field of their current studies. Students are encouraged to carry out their internship in an internationally engaged organisation.

After their internship, participants are given the opportunity to discuss issues and open questions they have come across through the internship report. They are invited to reflect on the possibilities and limits of transferring procedures to other countries, especially their own.
