External internship regulations
‘Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.
In order to complete your curricular internships, you need to have passed 50% of the programme credits and have enrolled in the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.
If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. It’s possible to do internships in any academic year, but keep in mind that they are a complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you acquire throughout your studies, the more you shall benefit from the internship.’
