Internship - an opportunity
Hanken internships in 2017An internship as a natural part of your studies
An internship at graduate level is always implemented within your major and can be done either in Finland or abroad. On graduate level you can perform the 5 or 10ECTS also by combining shorter periods of internship and in different companies.
For more information on what is required of your internship, reporting on the intership to recieve credits and the course coordinator please see WebOodi.
Grant for internship
Hanken offers you the opportunity to apply for a grant for your internship period. You can apply for a grant in the Mobility Online portal twice a year. Keep in mind that the requirements to receive ECTS and a grant differ. You can get a grant for max 12 weeks. Your internship has to last a minimum of 84 days on Bachelor's level and 60 days on Master's level in order for you to be eligible to get an internship grant.
Please note that funding is limited and vouchers are granted as long as there are grant funds available. When granting vouchers, Hanken prioritises internships that constitute an integrated, obligatory part of the bachelor studies.
Where do I find my internship?
It is you who are responsible to find your own internship. It is good to be a bit critical and think carefully about where you actually want to work. Many students have found their internship via contacts or i.e. a previous summer job.
