RENZ Germany meets RENZ UK
German Student gets positive experience during his practical training abroad
The dual university course business engineering includes a theory-semester at the university in Heidenheim (DHBW) as well as a practical semester at a cooperating company. During the 2nd year of training the student has to get training at a subsidiary in a foreign country.
Our DHBW Student Alexander Berger was offered the opportunity to get his practical experience at RENZ (UK) Limited, our daughter company in Hatfield, England. “I liked actively participating in the areas of order processing, invoicing, route planning for deliveries and especially managing the online orders and offers on Amazon”, comments Alex.Berger on his experience in England. “Practical experience during studies helps a lot to get an insight into the whole company and a feeling for on-site working life.” He reports excitedly: “The highlight during my apprenticeship was a day out, taking part in the busy dynamic business life in London City with visits to several different dealers.”
Alex booked his accommodation in the Internet on his own initiative. A very friendly family welcomed him warmly and supported him with a lot of tips for sightseeing, shopping and sport activities. Hatfield is centrally located and can be reached by train from London Kings Cross station in 25min and in 55min from Cambridge.
With all the new experiences and positive impressions he gathered in England, our student came back and is now looking forward to his semester abroad, which he will spend in August in Seoul/South Korea. We are looking forward to his field report from Asia.
