Work Placements Step by Step

VU International News and Reviews No. 04 April 22 2013

April 2013

This Internship Guide is an essential complement to the work already done in the Tuning framework. Originally published in Dutch this book was adjusted to an international setting and translated into English with support from Tuning. The book is fully in accord with the Tuning methodology with competences and learning outcomes. The method guarantees that the placements contribute significantly to the level and thus the quality that the degree programme aims for. Work placements are a way for students to apply the competences achieved in their educational programme in practice in the labour market, and to further develop them and thus achieve the learning outcomes of their degree programme. The placement may be seen as an excellent example of the student-centred and active learning approach.
