If you wish to postpone the BPS practice project to another semester, please inform the BPS unit informally by email to bps[at]asl.uni-kassel[dot]de

Missing module was/is already taken, exam and/or grade still missing:

If you are taking a module required for the practical project in the current semester and still need to take the exam, or if you have already taken the module in a previous semester but the grade has not yet been entered, please indicate this in the prerequisite form. If you are registered for the module for the examination, you will be admitted to the practical part (internship) under reserve. You will not be able to register for the examination in the module Practical Project BPS until you have fulfilled the prerequisites by proving that you have successfully completed the required modules.

Missing module was/is not yet taken:

You cannot be admitted to the Praxisprojekt BPS if you are missing modules that are not taken no later than the semester before the internship. Modules that have not yet been completed cannot be taken in the same semester in which the practical project is to be completed in order to prove the prerequisites.

The prerequisites for recognition as a practical placement within the framework of the BPS are, on the one hand, the professional relevance of the projects that are worked on during your practical phase and, on the other hand, you should be accompanied on site by a qualified specialist supervisor with a corresponding university degree, i.e:

  • for students of architecture > supervision by an architect
  • for students of urban and regional planning > supervised by an urban planner, regional planner, urban planner or a similar person
  • for students of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Planning > Supervision by Landscape Architect, Landscape Planner or equivalent

We would be happy to create a certificate for you. To do so, please send an e-mail to bps[at]asl.uni-kassel[dot]de. If you have not yet communicated the internship period and the internship site, please also provide us with this information.
