The period varies from about six months to a year, depending on the school and the programme they undertake.
Internship helps students to manage their expectations and, more importantly, to bring what they have learnt in class to the actual work place. Such exposure also help them to better understand the nature of the profession, the industry they are keen to explore, and learn more about their strength and weaknesses in order for them to cope with unforeseen challenges. In short, internship prepares students to work and excel in the real world.
