Module title:


Internship


Module overview:


As well as completing the thesis students are required to undertake an internship as part of this module to learn to apply the theoretical and practical knowledge they have acquired during their study programme to a workplace setting.

Students must liaise with the Career Centre to organize their internship, and to confirm the tasks they will undertake while on internship that will comprise part of the formal assessment of the module.

The internship is organised using Infoeduka IT system that has a list of available internships and students select an employer and topic / technology they are interested in. With the help of the Career Centre, employers then select students and their internship topic is further supported by selected mentor (within the institution) so that relevant tasks are completed during the internship. Students have an employer mentor who at the end of the internship, report on the student’s achievements during the internship.

Students who are already employed and work on relevant projects / tasks are not required to undertake the Internship, but they need to submit a written report from the employer specifying their work and self-reflective written report on their experience (same documents as would be required from students on Internship).
