Internships

MUDEC’s Summer Internship Program

The Summer Internship Program is a professional and academic extension of each spring semester taking place between mid-May and the end of July. Students apply to internships through MUDEC’s Community Partners during the previous fall and receive offers during the fall semester. Once the student accepts the offer, he/she is also free to discuss the possibility of starting the internship (part-time) through an Independent Study during the spring semester, potentially providing the student with over six continuous months of experience in a professional setting.

Eligibility

Students from all majors who will study at MUDEC during the spring semester are welcome and encouraged to apply to one or more internship through our Community Partners. Those selected will receive an offer.

Structure

Before the first day, students and community partners work together to complete a Summer Internship Work Plan outlining both the student and internship provider’s goals for the student’s development and the projects and tasks the students complete. Community Partners must provide measures of success and are encouraged to review the work plan on a weekly basis with the intern. During the last day of the program, all interns and Community Partners attend MUDEC’s Summer Internship Presentation & Luncheon Day. Each intern completes a final presentation detailing his/her achievement of goals, results on projects, and application to future academic and professional arenas. Feedback is provided by both MUDEC and the Community Partner to allow for growth and development

Compensation

Legally, as interns are on a student residency permit (continuation from spring semester), they cannot receive compensation. However, the community partner may wish to provide the student with up to 1000€ per month in allowance allotted for food, housing, transportation, etc.

Student Experience

“My internship in Luxembourg taught me so much about myself both academically and professionally. I learned that my dream of working abroad is attainable. I worked at a start-up in the heart of Luxembourg. I was challenged everyday and was responsible for large projects within the company. My experience also taught me how to be adaptable and open-minded in a foreign environment. My favorite part of the summer was the National Day celebrations in Luxembourg city. I felt so connected to the city while listening to the national anthem and watching the fireworks. I also enjoyed seeing the country side of Luxembourg, especially the beautiful hiking spots.” — Kaitlyn Cooper
