Transfer Voucher Programme

The Transfer Voucher Programme is a compelling win-win offer for science and industry.  If smaller projects and tasks are repeatedly buried under day-to-day business in your company, then you should entrust them as project work to the motivated students at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. Like every other university, we are always looking for current relevance to practice. Our students constantly surprise us with creative ideas and plans, but often our everyday academic lives do not present us with the opportunity to give them room.

The Transfer Voucher Programme has been in place in the universities of Saxony-Anhalt since 2012. Companies hand over their project work to students who carry it out under the supervision of university lecturers. The short projects may not run for longer than six months. The implementation is supported by a Transfer Voucher for 400 euros. The project must be completed with all of the necessary documentation and associated signatures within six months. This project offers university lecturers the chance to support interaction between their students and professional practice in order to implement the theoretical knowledge that they have acquired. For your company the support programme means a low-cost and yet high-quality way of working on tasks from your day-to-day operations.

Furthermore, companies gain the opportunity to get in touch with potential recruits.

Only projects with companies that are based in Saxony-Anhalt may be supported. Projects in cooperation with direct institutions of the university that do not have their own separate legal identity are excluded.
