Internship (10 Credits)
The first part of the third term consists of a three-month internship in a relevant company in Denmark or abroad, taking place in the period between the beginning of June and the middle of October. Based on this internship, each student must hand in a written report.
Please note that it may be difficult for international students who do not speak Danish to be accepted into a Danish company. Furthermore, non-EU citizens should be aware that it may be difficult to obtain a visa for non-Schengen countries (the UK and Ireland) in connection with an internship. Foreigners holding a Danish residence permit may on the other hand stay in all Schengen countries for up to 3 months without applying for a visa.
Normally, students do not receive a salary during internships. If you are doing your internship outside of Denmark, you may be eligible to receive an Erasmus mobility grant.
Final exam project (15 Credits)
In the fourth term, all students must complete a final exam project, handing in a more extensive report that is also usually based on the company where the internship took place.
The AP Degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management enables students to earn a Bachelor’s degree in or outside Denmark.
