Following an internship is an important part of the programme. As an international student it is highly advisable to complete an internship abroad. In addition to the classes you attend at school, you will start working with a company or institution for a certain period of time. This is the moment that you put everything you have learnt during your studies into practice. During an internship that fits your programme, you will learn the skills that are part of your future career. This helps you make a good transition from education to the labour market.
You will have an internship supervisor at school and a practical trainer at work. They help you do your internship. To complete your degree, you must complete your internship with a sufficient grade. In addition to the work you do at your internship, you also do assignments from an internship workbook.
Doing one or more internships abroad is strongly advised for a student at Summa International.
