In 3rd semester, you will do an internship in a company for 3 months.
In your internship you will get to test your newly acquired skills in a company and get insight into future work assignments and career opportunities. You will be able to connect your theoretical knowledge with practical experience, and at the same time strengthen your CV.
In the internship, you can try a specific field of work and then focus your programme in relation to your career plans. As part of your internship, you must write a reflection report based on what you have learnt - and include your reflections on what you will do to ensure the continued development of your competencies.
The internship is a mandatory part of your programme, and it is your responsibility to find an internship company. To help, we have a wide range of tools and contacts available, e.g. via our job portal or career centre.
