Why do an internship? For some students, an internship is the ultimate way to explore a career. For others, an internship is a great way to gain relevant experience that will make them a stronger candidate for employment after graduation. It is a significant connection between academic studies and work experience.
Throughout their internships, students can gain valuable insight into what they can expect and experience within the fields of their study.

Some lessons cannot be taught in a classroom but only through professional and real world experiences. The Mentorship Hub bridges that gap by connecting students and young graduates with experienced alumni and members of the AAU community who can share the challenges, successes and cross roads they faced on their career paths, and offer their advice in this ever diversifying career world.
