An internship is either a paid or non-paid, part-time or full-time job, in an area related to your studies. Some internships offer academic credit and others are non-credit.
Internships greatly enhance your learning experience and your marketability in the job market. Students who choose to do an internship have an advantage when seeking employment because they have a proven track record in the area they wish to be employed in. In addition, they gain feedback from experienced mentors who can also provide letters of recommendation.
