Internship report (EDUMA/MPEL)

Internship report instructions for EDUMA and MPEL students
 

NB! Internship is always agreed case-specifically with the programme coordinator(s)!!!

Internship report 

The internship report is an academic text that should follow the usual academic writing conventions and style. It should include the practical details of your internship as well as a thorough discussion and reflection on the learning ensued. For the writing style, please have a look at the Writing Workshop I slides in the EDUY1000 Orientation to Studies and Personal Study Plan course on Moodle. The report should include:

  1. A description of the internship institution. Give some general information about the institution: its organizational structure, mission/objectives, history, current situation and any other relevant information.
  2. A list of the tasks performed. Describe the tasks and duties you had during your internship in some detail.
  3. A discussion of the learning outcomes. Consider the goals you set for the internship and examine how and to what extent you achieved your goals or why you were not able to reach them. Think also against which criteria you can reflect your learning and how you can prove your learning. Write about your professional and personal growth, describe what skills and know-how you developed during the internship. Analyse how your learning experiences relate to your previous studies and experiences and how you were able to put the theories into practice. Furthermore, consider which skills you should develop in the future. Please include some references to relevant literature.

A good length for the report is 7-10 pages (font size 12, line spacing 1.5). The report should have

  1. A cover page with the name of the student and program details.
  2. A list of contents with page numbers.
  3. The main body of the text divided into sections with headings.
  4. A list of references on the last page/s.
