Internship regulations

Internships are a key part of your training. Gaining experience after learning in your degree program is the best way to enter the job market. There are two types of Internships: curricular (included in your curriculum) and extracurricular (those completed voluntarily).

To take part in curricular internships in companies, you must have passed 50% of the credits and enrolled in the subject before beginning the internship. These internships are conducted with follow-up by the company and by the internship professor, as well as intermediate and final reports for assessment.

If you want to improve your work experience before finishing your university training, you can take part in extracurricular internships. You may do so in any year, but remember that internships are complementary to your studies, so the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your degree program, the better you will be able to take advantage of your internship experience.
