Watch how Career Services can help you get ahead in life
Deciding on a career can be challenging and an industry-based internship can help you to explore and evaluate your career options while still at University.
Canadian University Dubai works with a wide range of partner companies to provide students with the opportunity to put into practice the skills and concepts learned in the classroom. The internship is an important experiential and academic component of each program and is compulsory for all undergraduate majors.
During an internship, students work for 150-180hrs (dependent upon the program) either on a part-time or full-time basis. Full-time internships involve 30-40hrs per week and part-time internships involve 15-20hrs per week. The host company/organization provides professional staff members to assist the student in their learning experience.
