KEA’s programmes are about combining theory and practice. And about getting close to the business community and the job market for you as a graduate. This is why all KEA students must do an internship.

The internship is a mandatory part of all KEA programmes. It is a chance for you to make the connection between theory and practice while still studying. It is also a chance to exchange knowledge and test your skills and values in a business environment of relevance to your study programme.

As a result, you will be a much more attractive employee once you graduate. In addition, the host company will get to know you.

On our academy profession and top-up programmes, the internship period is 10 weeks. On the professional bachelor programmes, the internship period is 20 weeks.

The internship is unpaid for all our study programmes, except for the BA in Optometry programme.
