The internship is an integral part of a degree programme and is designed to help students gain professional experience, as well as improve and strengthen their knowledge and competencies acquired in the course of theoretical education.

For master’s students, professional internship (for master’s thesis) is the way to incorporate research and/or teaching internship. It is aimed at the development of the research and professional skills of students, their competencies in self-organisation, independent professional activities, and proper time management. It also serves the need to collect primary data for completing research.
The internship is held in the spring semester of the second year. It weights 12 ECTS and can take place in research divisions of HSE, or in external organizations.
Internships are graded on a 10-point grading scale and assessment results are included in the student performance rating. Students who failed to complete their internship for no valid reason or who received a fail grade shall be facing academic failure.

Before the start of the internship, students should bring an agreement  between HSE and the organization to the study office.

The research advisor and the student’s supervisor from the place of internship together supervise the students’ activities during the internship.
