Internships and work placements give students an insight into the working standards, methods and organisation management of a company either in the private or public sector.

The benefits of an internship are enormous: students can put all their theoretical knowledge in practice, learn from their experienced colleagues and mentors, gain experience and confidence, develop their skills and start building their own network of valuable business connections. Bright and talented interns are often recruited for a full-time job after their graduation.

What to expect from your internship?

Wittenborg Bachelor students generally have to complete a period of work experience ranging from 3 to 6 months. During this time the students are available full time for the company concerned and a work placement contract is signed between the student, Wittenborg and the organisation. Non-EU students do not require a work permit for this period of placement. A monthly payment of between €250 and €500 is agreed depending on policies at the work placement company, the complexity of the task a student will be carrying out, and the previous work experience a student has had.

Students can complete specific one-off specialist projects, while injecting fresh ideas. Often international students can bring an aspect of internationalisation in their internship at a company that is extremely beneficial to the company itself. For instance, many Dutch companies have international business relations with China, India, Russia, to name but a few, and a student who speaks the local language, and understands the culture of the country concerned, can work on projects in areas such as logistics, marketing and branding, international finance - payments and billing. Last year one of the students even had a chance to help organising a royal event!

Students are also stimulated to complete their graduation project on the basis of a consultancy research request from a company, for example, a marketing plan, a business plan, a quality audit preparation or an international branding or launch of a product on an international market. This final project research can also be done in the form of an in-company research assignment.
