Learning outcomes

The internship is one of the key elements in the student’s education. Its purpose is to give students experience and capacities in:

- Direct contact with emergency situations and/or development

- A direct application of their knowledge in real situations that the students would experience


The institutions will assign an advisor for the student who is responsible to plan, coordinate and supervise the internships. During the internship period, the advisor will control, verify and when possible help the student to integrate into a way of working in a new environment with new demands.
