This Internship Program consists of 2 phases: minimum 4 weeks of Standard Portuguese language followed by the internship placement.
The Internship Period:
Professional practice internships are offered in private sector companies, governmental organizations, NGO's, schools, colleges, and universities. The work period may start from 2 months and run up to 12 months.
The language skill is an important factor. The more limited the student's language abilities, the flexible s/he will have to be in terms of placements. We try very hard to match the students' educational background, professional experience, and professional plans, to the internship placement. We contact the student (by e-mail or in person) with one or more possibilities, and descriptions of those internships, and ask the student for comments and to rank the possibilities in order of preference. This helps us ensure appropriate placement.
