Internship Structure

An internship is a professional learning experience of supervised training and on-the-job learning events and activities. Not all work experiences are internships. Roles that merely require the student to perform clerical, routine or repetitive tasks are not considered internships.

Internships have clearly defined beginning and end dates, and include a job description.

Internships may be paid or unpaid. Students apply directly to the organization.
