Frequently asked questions
Questions about questions. Maybe you will find an answer to yours here. And if not, just drop us a mail and we’ll answer them as soon as possible!
No! On the contrary, INTIE is all about interdisciplinarity – the collaboration of different departments and universities. Of course, the topics should interest and motivate you, but we don’t require a specific degree, but will make sure that the cohort is colorfully mixed.
You should have about 10 hours per week available for the program. We have taken into account the compatibility with studies and possible part-time jobs in the design of the program.
No, you will have plenty of opportunities in the first semester to get inspired and develop ideas for potential business ideas. Then, at the beginning of the second semester, interdisciplinary teams form around promising ideas that they want to develop further.
Yes, because the program originates from Startup Port, a joint project of the following universities: University of Hamburg, TUHH, HAW Hamburg, Leuphana, FH Wedel, HSU and UKE. If you study at one of these universities, you can apply to INTIE.
No, all events will take place during the usual lecture times. If there are exceptions for individual events, you will be informed as soon as possible.
In principle, credit transfer is possible, but you have to take care of it yourself. The seminars Future Trends and Prototype & Pitch each comprise 6 ECTS points. If a creditability for your studies is possible (e.g. as a minor subject), we will support you.
Scheduling conflicts can never be completely avoided – as long as you regularly attend our events and only miss a few, it’s not a problem.
Canceling motivated students really hurts us! Unfortunately, our program has only 12 places in this first year, which means we can’t guarantee a place for everyone. If time works for you, please apply again next year, we would love to have you.
First of all: Congratulations, we are happy to welcome you on board. You will receive more details about the program after you accept. On October 28-30, 2022, we will all get to know each other at the Kick-Off Weekend and you will get the final info for your start in the program.
