It is possible to give your education an international twist
You can go on an internshipt abroad during the course of your education at UCN.
Why go abroad?
If you choose to do an internship abroad, you will no doubt develop — personally as well as professionally. You will broaden your horizons and develop your language and professional skills:
- This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to challenge yourself, to increase and develop your intercultural competencies — and an opportunity to return enlightened and enriched.
- You will also add an international dimension to your CV.
- Most contemporary businesses need employees possessing intercultural competencies gained in today's multi-cultural world.
- An internship abroad will improve your ability to consider matters from an innovative and different perspective.
If you do your internship abroad you will get an insight into how a foreign business organisation operates and become part of another country's culture. You will achieve language and intercultural competencies that you will never forget.
At the same time, you will also get a unique chance to create networks – very early on in your career – that are likely to come in handy in the future while expanding your knowledge of different businesses. An internship abroad will no doubt improve your career opportunities in Denmark and internationally.
You should know that it is your responsibility to find an internship host company. However, the International Coordinator at the International Office at your address is ready to offer advice and guidance on visa rules, grants applications, deadlines and much more.
There are grants that you can apply for.
The international office
You are always welcome to visit the International Coordinator at your address for more information.
If you go abroad for an internship the International Coordinator will also be able to help you in terms of practical information about e.g. applying for grants, and visa regulations, deadlines etc.
