General Information on the Required Placement
A pre-requisite for being awarded a degree is a successfully finalized Placement of 160 hours (4 weeks). The objective of the Placement is to apply the acquired academic knowledge in practice. Consequently, the places for this activity are primarily Research Institutes and Centers of Analysis,
public administration offices, political parties or other professional organisations dealing with political science and policy issues.
