The Student Service Center and the Center for Key Qualifications of the University of Freiburg organize the lecture series “Von der Uni in den Beruf” (“From the University to a Career”) in cooperation with the Federal Employment Agency’s university team in Freiburg.

Each lecture deals with a different theme geared toward students in the mid to late phase of their studies. The students learn about individual occupational fields and can ask experts with many years of practical experience questions about the organization of internships, financial management, application strategies, employee selection procedures, and much more.

The lectures are held on Thursdays from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. Registration is not necessary. The lectures are free of charge and are open to students of all fields of study.
