Have you always wanted to gain practical experience in your field during your study? The internship minor is the perfect opportunity. You will perform specific tasks in an organisation of your choice. An internship is an efficient way to explore the professional field, to bring theory into practice and to gain a better understanding of your own qualities and shortcomings. After you have finished you internship minor, you will have more knowledge about your capacities, wishes and ambitions. Furthermore, employers scan your CV on practical experience, so this minor may give you an advantage over your competition.
What is the time period for an internship?
The minor requires you to invest at least 420 hours (15 ECTS) in your internship. This equals three months of full-time work, but it is also possible to spread the hours over a longer period of time. The exact start and end date will be determined in consultation with your internship company/organisation.
