Students’ advisor for the writtten project drawn from the host organization or its milieu to ensure close fit in terms of expertise.
The written work (“independent study”) associated with the internship in the IFE model may take the form of a scientific journal article.
IFE’s programs in Brussels and Strasbourg find top-level laboratory placements in those cities.
|The placement process begins with the admissions application which includes a "placement form" which allows students to describe in detail what they wish to pursue during their semester of Field Study and Internship. From that point forward the process is completely individualized. It is not a list-based process. |
The profiles and lists provided here are meant solely to demonstrate the variety of student academic/professional goals within the broad field of culture which can be accomodated by IFE’s programs}.
