Internship

Note: this section does not cover the 30 ECTS internship that is mandatory to the EM-SANF programme.

As an Agrobiology, Agro-Environmental Management or EUR-Organic student you have the option of doing a 15 ECTS internship. The internship is done with a public or private company/organization in cooperation with an AU supervisor, and allows you to work with academic-level tasks that are not normally part of e.g. a Master's thesis.

Internship course description

If you want to do an internship, you must first register for it in the self service as if it was a regular course. You are responsible for finding a host company and an AU supervisor, and make a project plan. Please contact course coordinator Rasmus Pedersen before starting this process.

Before the internship starts, you must settle a list details with your host company and your AU supervisor. These are described in the Internship Agreement Form, which must be sent to the course coordinator once filled in.

Internship Agreement Form

 

When you start contacting host companies, this is a checklist of subjects that you should touch on:

- When and for how long do you want to do the internship? The internship can be concentrated in a single quarter, or spread over a whole semester, but should be ended in the same semester that it's started.

- What tasks should you be given? These must generally be at a level that matches your educational level. You should also consider what you want to try out - data analysis, customer contact, sales, teaching etc.

- What should the internship report be about? Your AU supervisor is responsible for this part of the internship, and your host company is not obligated to contribute.

- Can the report be made public? If not, then you should make a confidentiality agreement before the project starts. If the host company does not have its own confidentiality form, you are welcome to use the AU standard confidentiality form.
