Two annual events taking place on the premises of department 4.6 every two years are organised to help the students meet people already working in the translation and interpreting business. During the Open House potential employers have the possibility to familiarize themselves with the academic activities at the department and to talk to teachers and students. The second event called Praxis und Studium caters for the exchange of experience between former and present students. Discussion groups are arranged to provide the students with information on the professional life and fields of activity of translators and interpreters.
