1. Internship and job offers

The internship and job offers are visible to everyone (incl. to students from other universities). A student can distinguish internship and job offers and search them by location, field, and language. Before going to an internship, students must get acquainted with his/her institute’s internship system.


For a successful internship, students must get acquainted with the internship system of their institute or turn to their internship coordinator.

2. Project-based internship

The project-based internship is a university-wide course (SVMJ.02.014) that all students (incl. students from other universities) can take as an elective or optional course. Students can participate in the project-based internship as a team member and/or as a project idea author. For example, solving the idea or problem submitted by an organisation or individual, gives student an experience of a real working environment and therefore the opportunity to acquire practical experience in addition to theoretical knowledge. The course takes place twice a year, in the autumn and spring semesters. The dates for submitting a project idea or joining a project are found on the project-based internship subpage.

  • At the same time, you can only participate in one project. Each project team can have 3-10 students from different curricula and degrees (incl. Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D.).
  • To submit an idea, go to, click on Submit project, download the project form. If the project form is filled out, it needs to be uploaded in the same window in PDF format. The author of the project idea has an opportunity to test cases, analyse problems, and/or implement ideas together with a student team. The project-based internship is coordinated by the School of Economics and Business Administration, and for further information please contact
