External internships in companies or institutions are a key element of our training process. They represent a first direct contact for the student with the professional field where they can apply the knowledge they acquire at the university. They give the student a global vision of Communication and of the dynamics of operation of the media, company or institution where the student is doing the internship. At the same time, they also aid in beginning to build a network of professional contacts that in the future can help introduce them into the workplace. The university has an agreement with more than 1,200 companies where students can prepare to face the world of work.
The student must be able to know the reality of the media and the companies or departments that manage Corporate Communication where they will have been able to integrate into work teams to which they will contribute their skills. The student must also be able to communicate in the language of the press, radio, television, new media, journalistic productions or the material and actions of Corporate Communication in accordance with the criteria and characteristics of the company or institution in which they develop their activity.
During the internship, the student has to apply the knowledge that they have been acquiring over the course of their studies and the current semester. The student must show that they know how to integrate into a professional work team where they will complete their training while putting their skills at the service of the company or institution that hosts them.
There are two types of external internships: curricular and extracurricular.
The curricular are those that form part of our plan of studies: those which are compulsory are taken simultaneously with the VI seminar during the second semester of the third year, and those which are electives are taken during the first semester of the fourth year. The teacher of seminar VI is the tutor who will supervise the evolution of the student during the internship and who will guide them during the whole process. For fourth-year electives, the internship coordinator will designate a faculty member to monitor the student. In the company, students will also have a tutor appointed by the center who will supervise their learning.
Extracurricular internships are all others that the student can do voluntarily and that will not be part of the study plan despite the fact that they also have an exclusively educational purpose and that they, therefore, will appear in the European Supplement of the degree (SET). In all cases, the internships must be compatible with the student's university schedule. Internships may or may not be paid, depending on the company or institution.
At the following links you will find the program of the curricular internships.
The student also has the opportunity to do internships abroad through various agreements with companies and through programs such as Erasmus+.
The tutor of the students of the university will provide the criteria to follow in order to pass the subject of internship and the parameters to elaborate the Internship report. Here you will find the guide for making the report.
