Nile University undergraduate students are required to engage in an internship or service-learning experience a year before graduation. Student internships provide on-the-job training opportunities to students that help them gain experience in their fields, develop an interest in a particular career, and create a network of contacts. Service-learning enriches learning by engaging students in meaningful service to their communities. Students apply academic skills to solving real-world problems and linking their learning with genuine needs. They also learn to apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to global concerns such as hunger, pollution, and diversity.
Students are required to spend around 150 hours (a full month) of non-lecture time on their internship/service-learning activity and submit a report at the end. The intern supervisor is also required to submit an evaluation report and recommend a final score/grade for the student.
Three reports are required:
- An Initial Report filled in by NU Training & Internship Executive in coordination with the company/organization before the start of the internship. This report must be approved by the Business Supervisor.
- An Intern Supervisor Evaluation Report filled in by the intern supervisor. It should be signed, stamped and submitted to NU Training & Internship Executive no longer than a week after the internship is over. This Report will be sent to the Business Supervisor for review and will be counted towards the student’s final grade.
- A Student Internship Report filled in by the student and submitted to NU Training & Internship Executive no longer than a week after the internship is over. This Report will also be sent to the Business Supervisor for grading and evaluation. The Business Supervisor will then assign the student’s final grade.
