Conceptual design of the course is similar to that on the bachelor's degree. The course is about transfer of knowledge and skills gained during the study to the selected organisation. Similarly to the bachelor’s degree, practical training can be performed abroad, especially as a part of different international schemes (e.g. Erasmus). Specifics and additional emphasis of the practical course at the master’s degree level is in a more active involvement of the students into the work-related problems. On this basis, it is recommended that students consider the issues they were involved with at the practical training in the organisation to be developed and upgraded for a/the master thesis. Such an approach is also an incentive for the organisations, as otherwise they might not be interested only in a short one-month job coaching. Namely, in such a short time, it is impossible to train the student for complex tasks, whereas simple tasks are not appropriate for the master’s degree level. On the other side, with a problem-based master thesis, the organisation could gain specific added value. Furthermore, this sort of integration increases the involvement and motivation on both sides.
