Learning outcomes of course unit
Part-time students can:
• apply the knowledge they have acquired in a practical setting and gain new insights into the work environment through the knowledge they have acquired in the program (practical skills)
• reevaluate changed project environments through their newly-acquired knowledge using new argumentation, and perform better (problem-solving skills)
• apply the knowledge and team skills acquired in the program in the daily routine of the internship (social skills).
prerequisites and co-requisites
The internship complements the theory students have acquired throughout the program, by allowing them the opportunity to put it into practice in the workplace. The five-week internship ensures that students are ready for employment, possibly in an unfamiliar field, and that this period can be recognized within their studies. They come to recognize with and understand processes, workflow and other situations in the world of work in a new way.
Students are prepared for their internship by the Career Center. Throughout the internship help and guidance in relation to reflection, discussing issues that may arise and success stories is available.
