HOW IT WORKS
Each intern completes a structured and supervised internships (full-time) within a host organisation for 10-12 weeks during the special terms, and students can participate in the summer following their 2nd or 3rd year of study.
Year 2 students perform 12-week internships starting after final exams are over (typically the 2nd Monday in May). Year 3 students have slightly shorter internships of 10 weeks, typically starting the last Monday in May, because they also have to complete our signature, mandatory overseas field course (ENV 3102) in May.
Interns meet regularly with their on-site supervisors. And about halfway through the internship, the Academic Supervisors speak with these on-site supervisors to see how things are going, and then have progress meetings with their respective interns to give and receive feedback.
This is a graded internship, and students are assessed based on the following:
- General work attitude
- Weekly log sheet / reflective journal
- Final report
