What is an internship?
An internship is an obligatory part of an educational programme and is comprised of several weeks of practical training at external organizations or at one of HSE University’s subdivisions.
Internships are carried out pursuant to the Regulations for HSE Student Project Work, Research and Internships.
What kinds of internships are available?
Academic internships and work placements are the main types of internships available to HSE University’s students. Pre-graduation internships are also organized if so required by relevant educational standards.
An academic internship is normally limited to orientation purposes, and such internships are necessary for reinforcing the knowledge gained by students in the course of their studies.
Work placement is instrumental in obtaining professional skills and work experience.
Where can I do my internship?
HSE University students can do their internships:
• at HSE University’s partner organizations, including state, municipal, commercial and non-profit organizations;
• at HSE University’s subdivisions whose work corresponds to a student’s field of study.
An internship may be completed on an HSE University’s campus or elsewhere. The specific aspects for completing internships are indicated in relevant internship programmes.
Can I choose my place of internship?
Yes, if the place of internship corresponds to the relevant programme, and you have obtained your supervisor’s approval.
Please note: if an organization refuses to sign an internship agreement, provide a letter of consent to an internship signed by the organization to your Programme Office before the internship’s starting date. Template
Where can I find out the internship programme?
Details on internships are usually posted on the homepages of educational programmes.
What documents does one need for an internship?
• an individual internship assignment;
• an internship journal;
• a report with the internship results (to be signed by your faculty’s internship supervisor and your internship supervisor on behalf of the organization);
• an opinion provided by the organization’s director in regards to the student’s work.
How do I submit an application for an internship?
What procedures are applied to evaluate internship outcomes?
