Internships play an important part in student training and in connecting universities to the world of work. Internships are not regulated like employment contracts, but specific rules apply in order to protect both the interns and the companies.

To start an internship program, the university and a given company need to sign an agreement which stipulates:

  • the rules, duties, and responsibilities of the parties
  • the contents, duration, and objectives of the internship (and more specific details).
