Rules for internships:
Internships are key to your formation at the University, as they provide you with the chance to apply theoretical knowledge to practice, and they are a first approach to the labour market. You will find curricular and extra curricular internships. Curricular internships can only be carried out when you have already passed 50% of the Degree’s credits, and you need to be enrolled in the “Practicum” course before starting them. The company and your professor will schedule your tasks during internship, and their conclusions will appear in a final report for your assessment.
If you wish to enhance your professional experience before finishing the Degree, you will have the chance to undertake extra curricular internships. You can carry them out in any course; nevertheless, as internships reflect theoretical knowledge that you have acquired, it is advised that you have finished most part of the Degree before starting them. The London School of Economics (LSE), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ESGLOBAL, the Real Instituto Elcano, EFE Agency, UNICEF… are some of the institutions with whom the university has agreements so you start your internship.
