Modules of the type seminar, practical course, and project often have a limitation of the number of participants. Thus, you have to contact the responsible person/lecturer to apply for the attendance of these subjects.
This is also required for lectures with limited places (information on such limitations can be found on wuestudy).
If you plan to attend subjects with a limitation, please attach the excel sheet to your request for signing the learning agreement.

External practical courses ("Praktikum") and theses at companies are usually possible. However, these kind of works have to be coordinated by oneself. This coordination includes finding an appropriate company and a fitting University chair, asking for permission at the company and the University, and in finding a topic which fits both company and chair. The University chair is then responsible for the approval of the student's work and will evaluate it later.
The University of Würzburg does not offer intership positions, nor can the University help you find an internship position at local companies. The University does however offer a job portal (CareerLink on JobTeaser) with local positions.
The department ensures that all the mandatory courses in the Master’s programmes Computer Science, XtAI and Satellite Technology are offered in English, which provides a solid basis for English-speaking students to opt for full-time enrolment.
If you are already a student at a university abroad, you may opt for joining the University of Würzburg temporarily, taking courses and/or pursuing project/thesis work. Learning agreements would ensure that the courses taken at the University of Würzburg count towards the degree you are registered for at your primary/home university.
