  4. Head of Internship/Internship Coordinator The Internship Coordinator is responsible for the internship at MA SES which means that he: • conducts the Internship Preparation Seminar (Theory and Practice of Applied Research) • helps students to find a suitable internship placement • is the person in charge for the internship stipend • checks the internship reports that have to be handed in after the internship. Since one part of the "active professionalization" is also to go through the whole application process (including receiving and dealing with refusals), the internship coordinator is not necessarily in charge of finding internship placements for the students.

  9. 1. What is an internship? Interns are usually college or university students or other young adults. […] An internship may be either paid, unpaid or partially paid (in the form of a stipend). Paid internships are most common in the medical, science, engineering, business (especially accounting and finance), technology and advertising fields.

Internships may be part-time or full-time; typically they are part-time during the University year and full-time in the summer, and they typically last 6-12 weeks, but can be shorter or longer."
