Internship placement

The IFE mission-driven academic internship

All organizations which host IFE interns understand several key points:

- This is a trans-cultural experience for both parties.

- An IFE student is well prepared in general for the internship and will be ready to take on some responsibility after a short period of adaptation.

- The student intern is to be included as part of a working team, interacting on a regular basis with other members of the team.

- Hosting an intern requires a commitment of time and space to make sure the internship is a structured learning experience.

The individual placement strategy

At the core of the IFE model, the placement strategy for each enrolled student is put into place by IFE and the admitted student several months upstream of the start date of the program. The process begins with the “placement form” filed as part of the application for admission. This form provides applicants an opportunity to delineate what they hope to gain from the IFE Field Study and Internship semester as well as to describe their relevant background, skills and any other ideas they
may have for the internship (such as type of organization).
