It’s no secret that internships are the most effective way for students to gain work experience before graduation. In fact, studies show that 7 out of 10 internships turn into full-time jobs.
During their studies NU students can have two types of internships:
supervised by the Schools and contribute to a degree program.
All other types of internships that do not refer to credit-bearing type are considered a valuable learning experience and are coordinated and recorded by CAC in the internship database. +Eligibility for credit-bearing internship:
