An internship over a minimum of 6 weeks (or equivalent in full time work) is a compulsory component in the current curriculum. Students are strongly encouraged to use this for building links with potential employment opportunities and to gather some professional experience in a relevant sector. Many students elect to complete multiple internships over longer periods of time.
