Compulsory Internship is an integral part of studies at METU, where students can prepare for the requirements of the labor market in real work situations. Additionally, during their internship, they have many opportunities to network, which is indispensable in the labor market.
Those who speak Hungarian at least at a basic level, have many opportunities to find an internship placement in Hungary. Moreover, if they perform well and plan to stay in Hungary for a long term after graduation, they may turn their work placement into a full-time job offer.
The Compulsory Internship can be accomplished in any countries.
