Would you like to gain insight into the work of an archive and find out what secrets lie hidden behind the scenes? Then apply for an internship with us!

We offer a comprehensive view of a modern University Archive with a young and motivated team. In addition to the basics of archiving, such as listing holdings or answering inquiries, you will also have the opportunity to carry out smaller projects yourself. This internship report provides an insight into the wide range of tasks.


The internship offer is aimed primarily at students who are majoring in history or teaching and who have already completed their third semester.

The duration of the internship can be determined individually, but should be at least four weeks and full-time, as this is the only way we can ensure the best possible insight into the world of archiving. The internship can be started at the earliest possible date. Unfortunately, the internship is unpaid. Corresponding certificates and a certificate of completion will be issued.

If you are interested, please contact us by email stating your desired internship period and send us your CV as a PDF file.

Final theses and dissertations

If you are looking for a topic for your bachelor's or master's thesis off the beaten track, please contact us. We will be happy to advise you on which topics can be dealt with on the basis of our holdings and in accordance with your personal interests. In addition, you not only have the opportunity to work with original sources, but also to explore completely new and exciting topics and to delve deeper into the history of your own university.
