Model Projects EU

Traineeship programme in European Urban Studies (M.Sc.)

The traineeship programme "Model Projects" offers an exceptional cross-border experience during the third semester of the Masters programme European Urban Studies (M.Sc.). It is exclusively offered to students of the European Urban Studies programme.

With placements offered worldwide, the programme allows students to participate in advanced and interdisciplinary projects related to urban issues. These projects are offered by our distinguished partners in the private and public sectors as well as institutions of applied research.

Encouraging an international transfer of knowledge, "best practice" projects are presented at the annual International Model Project Forum in Weimar. This conference contributes to a deeper understanding of diverse challenges faced by current urban practices. What are the driving forces behind new projects? What are the chances and visionary perspectives of today’s projects for tomorrow’'s cities? And what specific requirements are articulated by urbanists in their concepts compared to other actors in the field?

In preparation of these collaborations, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and our Model Project partners agree on conditions, the observance of which is intended to ensure a successful collaboration and a rewarding experience of the Model Project for all parties involved. The following guidelines provide information on what is expected of students as well as what students can expect from their Model Project partners.
