Student internship

As such, an internship is a good opportunity to develop ideas or finish projects that the company may not otherwise be able to find time for. At the same time, the trainee can help establish contact to the extensive amount of knowledge and experience that the university’s lecturers, researchers and students possess.

There are many good reasons for a company or a public institution to open its doors to an intern. The internship period occurs relatively late in the program, and that means that the organization gets a professionally competent employee for a limited period.

For companies, an intern can be a breath of fresh air. It's always healthy to have the organization seen with fresh and professionally competent eyes. It is also a good opportunity to solve tasks that there may not be resources for in daily operations.


There are many reasons to take on an intern

  • The intern is an additional resource that can support the daily workload
  • The intern can assist in planning and implementation of major or minor projects
  • The intern can conduct evaluations and analyses
  • The intern can work both independently and engage in teamwork
  • The intern can analyze and work with problems in local, national and international contexts

Examples of tasks for an intern could be: Preparation of marketing plans, multimedia productions, research tasks, etc. The list is limited only by your imagination.


An international angle

An intern may also be one of the university's international students only at AAU for a two-year period. International students can be a further breath of fresh air as they can bring business knowledge from both Aalborg University and the university in their home country. Their unique language abilities and cultural understanding can also be used positively in contacts with business partners and partner organizations abroad.

Collaboration with students

​Aalborg University students have high disciplinary expertise in their subjects, as well as a wide range of general competencies related to group work and project work. They are therefore equipped to undertake a wide variety of tasks in your business.

Whether in terms of an internship, a student job or project, companies will get a highly motivated, inventive employee capable of solving specific tasks in conjunction with the company, or more generally, looking at the daily practices of the company with fresh eyes. And furthermore, they get the chance to introduce the company to potential future employees.
