New guidebook for internships in universities – also for employers

A new guidebook for internships and other work periods in universities has been published. The guide, Work placement periods in university studies - Recommendations on the planning, implementation and reporting of internships and other work placement periods – For students, universities and employers, has been written in co-operation with six Finnish universities, students and employers.

The guide contains advice and examples for each phase of the internship period starting from planning and finishing with the reporting. It also contains summary cards of the tasks and responsibilities of universities, students and employees. The guide is applicable in all Finnish universities.

The guidebook is developed as a part of ESF-funded TYYLI-project (Bridging the cap between university studies and working life) in co-operation with Tampere University of Technology, University of Oulu, Aalto University, University of Lapland, Lappeenranta University of Technology and University of Turku.

The guide is published electronically both in English and in Finnish.
