Internships are a key element in your education. Acquiring experience after what you have learned in your degree is the best way to enter the labor market. There are two types of internships, curricular (included in your program) and extracurricular (which you can do voluntarily).

To complete the curricular internships, you’ll need to have 50% of the credits approved and enroll on the subject before starting your internship. Time spent at sports companies and organizations is monitored by the company and the internship leader, as well as the preparation of interim and final reports for evaluation.

If you want to improve your professional experience before completing your university education, you can do extracurricular internships. You can do them in any academic year but we remind you that they need to complement to your studies. The more knowledge you have acquired throughout the program, the more you will get out of the experience.
