To be eligible for the internship course you must have:

  • found an internship within your main field of study, and handed in complete details using this online form by May 15, 2019;
  • had the internship approved by the programme coordinator, and;
  • completed all credits from semesters one, two and three, as well as 15 credits from semester four by June 15, 2019.

Find an internship

You are responsible for finding an internship that meets the following criteria:

  • the tasks are relevant to your main field of study, and require higher education within the field (consult your programme coordinator if you have any questions regarding this requirement);
  • you have an employed supervisor with experience within the field;
  • the internship lasts for a minimum of 15 weeks, with a total of 480 hours;
  • the internship is at an established organisation or company; and
  • the internship is unpaid.

If your internship requires a certificate of enrolment or proof that the internship is part of your education, you can contact the student administration.

Student Administration at the Faculty of Culture and Society

If your internship does not meet the above requirements, or if mandatory information is missing from your application, you will need to submit supplementary information to the study administrator by June 15.

Course structure

The course runs full time during the autumn semester, and your internship must start and end within this period. The course structure is centred on experience-based self-study. You are expected to work independently and contribute to your workplace, but you are not expected to take responsibility for the workplace’s activities. You are required to have regular contact with your supervisor.

With the exception of an internship conference in December, there are no physical meetings at the University during the course. Information and contact with supervisors are managed via Itslearning, email and Skype.

Getting an internship is not the same thing as being eligible for the course. You must have completed 105 credits within your programme to be eligible. The school will be signing a contract with your internship coordinator in June, which will officially register you for the internship course.

Please note that there may be minor changes to the course structure before the course starts.

Internship conference and examination

To pass the course you must hand in mandatory examination assignments, and it is recommended that you spend time on these assignments during the internship period. Your academic supervisor, with whom you can discuss the assignments during the course, will be a lecturer from K3.  

You are expected to present your internship to other students at K3’s Internship Conference in December.

If you do your internship abroad or for any other reason are not able to participate in the conference, you will have to do a re-sit.

Internship abroad

You can choose to do your internship abroad. Once your internship has been approved by the University, we will contact you with more information about how to obtain an insurance certificate.

Please note that your supervisor and internship organisation must be located in the country where you will be completing your internship. Representatives from Sweden are not accepted.

If you choose to do your internship abroad, you are responsible for obtaining a visa and must cover all accommodation and travel costs yourself. For internships in countries with visa requirements, it is important that you apply for your visa as early as possible.
