The UCTE Academic Career Office organises attractive student internships abroad, both obligatory and optional. Some of them are conducted as part of the Erasmus programme. Every year, the University prepares a list of top employers who seek future employees among students. There is plenty to choose from! Our students can benefit from a few hundred workplaces in companies across Europe and the United States.Internships abroad are an increasingly popular form of gaining experience by young people and also a CV item highly valued by employers.
Interns in other countries allow students to gain a real-life workplace experience and also bring them significant financial benefits. Students who are qualified for the internship get:
– pocket money: 350 – 750 euro per month,
– free board and lodging,
– reimbursement of travel expenses.
Show initiative while studying, as being active is of great importance to your future employers. If you think of finding a good job after graduation, you are welcomed to participate in student internships. Nowadays, high average grade is not enough. Students of the University College of Tourism and Ecology in Sucha Beskidzka gain work experience not only in Europe, but also in North America.
Countries available for the internship programme:
The USA, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Tunisia, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Egypt.
The Academic Career Office, which organises the internship programme, consequently aims to cooperate only with the best companies. Thus, it is able to offer a wide range of attractive internship jobs.
Requirements for students: good knowledge of a foreign language (preferably English), involvement in the University’s life, average score of the required level and the successful completion of the first year of study. For more information contact the Academic Career Office.
Thanks to the internships abroad offered by the University, students have a unique opportunity to improve their language skills, experience new cultures and explore interesting destinations all over the world. An international environment provides our students with a chance to gain valuable life experiences while paving their way to a professional career. Students work in the most attractive tourist destinations, where they have plenty of opportunities to establish valuable contacts with employers. Very often it allows them to come back to the same company in the following years, for a longer apprenticeship after graduation or even for a full-time job.
UCTE also provides internships in television, radio, editorial offices of the leading Polish newspapers, IT companies, as well as renowned advertising and PR agencies.
The idea behind organising internships is to enable our students to confront their theoretical knowledge with practice and to gain more experience, as well as to enhance their general knowledge and prepare them for future employment.
