Work placement

Stay in or go abroad - get experience through a work placement on the International Hospitality Management programme

In the 3rd semester of the International Hospitality Management programme you will be doing a work placement.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to build a network with the business community while testing your theoretical skills in a practical setting and developing personally.

Starting on 1 July or 1 August, the work placement takes place over the course of 13 consecutive weeks.

You can stay in Denmark or go abroad for your work placement.

If you want to go abroad, you can also apply for grants with the help of UCN. As a student of International Hospitality Management you will also get access to the world's leading hospitality network, Hosco, where you can search for work placements and jobs among more than 1.400 global employers worldwide and 45.000 jobs.
