Selecting an Internship/Mentorship
An internship is a paid or unpaid professional work experience in which an individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what he or she is learning throughout the experience. A mentorship is a personal developmental relationship where a business professional or academic helps guide a student in their study or work to support learning and professional growth.
Internships or mentorships may be undertaken on a part-time basis concurrent with study at a Host Institution or on a full-time basis (for a maximum of six months) subsequent to study at a Host Institution. A number of internship providers can be found on the Internship webpage.
If you require assistance in addressing the selection criteria, please contact the Careers Service to make an appointment.
