Integrated Work Study Programme
Students can choose to opt for an Internship (UXG4950 and UXG4990) in their 7th and 8th trimesters. An internship is any carefully monitored work or service experience in which an individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what she or he is learning throughout the experience. It is usually a professional activity under general supervision of an experienced professional and in a job situation, which places a high degree of responsibility on the student.
