Internship is an integral part of a degree programme and is designed to help students gain professional experience, as well as improve and strengthen their knowledge and competencies acquired in the course of theoretical education.
Internships may be held at state, municipal, social, commercial and non-profit institutions or University subdivisions matching the student’s field of study. Study offices have a database of businesses, institutions and organizations suitable for internships in the given field of study but students may find their own placements. Students who have relevant employment record may have it counted as introductory and professional (but not pre-degree) internship.
Types of internships
For undergraduate students:
- Student internship that can incorporate introductory internship and/or research internship;
- Professional internship (for bachelor’s thesis) that can incorporate research and/or teaching (in certain cases)/ technological/ pre-degree internship;
For master’s students:
- Professional internship (for master’s thesis) that can incorporate research and/or teaching internship.
Internships are graded on a 10-point grading scale and assessment results are included into the student performance rating. Students who failed to complete their internship for no valid reason or who received a fail grade shall be facing academic failure.
