An intership is a short-term work experience provided to higher education students in a host organisation (a company, research institution, NGO etc.) to that gives them opportunity to get hands-on experience, to develop practical skills and to use their theoretical knowledge in practice, and thus prepare them for employment.
The purpose of the placement is not to earn money, but to gain work experience and develop professional skills. Some students may be offered employment in the host organisations.
Information on placements can be obtained from individual faculties and/or Mobility Office
