Internships offer students an invaluable chance to experience the labor market before they complete their studies, so as to practice in a working environment what they learned at the university and to evaluate their real motivation when stepping into a professional role.
An internship represents an opportunity for professional and personal growth and enhances the student’s study curriculum as it is integrative to individual study and the university learning process.
It can be seen as a moment of experimentation, a way to try out a particular career which enables students to see the connection between knowledge acquired at university and how it is applied in a particular organisation.
Since the University understands how important internships are, they are now included in most of its academic programmes as credit-bearing activities.
The number of credits and how they are assigned varies according to the regulations of the individual Faculties and Degree programmes.
The project internship is a work-related experience in organisations (companies and institutions) which offers the opportunity to approach the job market and enhances the learning progress.
The content of the internship must be consistent with the educational objectives of the MSc program the student is enrolled in.
The University considers this experience as part of the learning process, together with lectures and individual study.
