Summer Internship/Service-Learning Program
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 is 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.
Nile University allows students to participate and join various multinational and national companies to offer internship opportunities to gain experience in their fields which is mandatory for NU students to graduate.
