Important Update

Thank you for your interest in the PrimA programme. Unfortunately, for organisational reasons we will neither be able to offer the preparatory part of the module during the winter term 2020/2021 nor the school placements during the summer term 2021.
The next information session will take place next year, in May 2021. You will then get the chance to apply for a school placement in England or Wales for the time period April - June 2022.




School placements abroad? - PrimA

PrimA! Praktikum im Ausland

Welcome to the webpages of the TEFL PrimA (Schul-Praktikum im Ausland) programme. If you are studying English at the Department of English and American Studies with the aim of becoming a teacher of English, and if you are considering a stay abroad as one of the practical components of your bachelor’s degree, then you have found your way to the right place on the web.


Every year around May or June (the exact dates are to be found both in the ‘News’ section and on our departmental noticeboard) applications may be made for a place on the PrimA programme. Before you decide to make an application, you are cordially invited to read what follows – which will answer your questions about the scheme.



We were greatly saddened earlier this week when we were forced to the decision to cancel this year's PrimA project due to the serious risk to health and even to life posed by the coronavirus pandemic. Now safeguarding and social distancing is everyone's responsibility. We wish you well in the coming weeks and months, hoping that you, your families, your friends remain safe.
