Generally, one 10 ECTS internship usually lasts 5 to 6 weeks. Internships can also be combined for longer periods.
The student can be in internship all year round and also during summer. Every year, dozens of students from our school’s European partner universities also study at Humak. They can also complete their studies as an internship in Finnish organisations.
We recommend paying a salary or a fee to the trainee. This will improve your chances of finding a motivated trainee.
At the beginning of the studies, the main emphasis of the internship is on getting to know working life and the profession. At the end of the studies, the focus is on more demanding and independent work tasks. All internships also include topic familiarisation from a theoretical perspective by using the relevant literature to analyse and evaluate of work assignments.
The workplace must have a responsible person appointed for the trainee, i.e., the traineeship supervisor, who acts as a guide for the student throughout the traineeship. The workplace representative receives instructions from Humak for this guidance. At the end of the course, the trainee will receive written and oral feedback from the instructor.
Successful internship requires the cooperation of the workplace, the student and the university of applied sciences. The goals of the internship are recorded in the internship agreement, which is concluded before starting work. In the same context, an internship plan will also be approved.
