The internship provides students with the opportunity to integrate theory with practice, and to gain first-hand experience of working environments dealing with European and European Union institutions or organizations. The work placement consolidates and extends knowledge acquired from core units through experiential learning. The unit develops understanding of the application of academically obtained knowledge and research skills in a workplace environment, and facilitates acquisition of work-based networks for potential employment opportunities.
