In order to make the most of this internship a multi-step assignment package has to be compiled starting with pre-placement preparatory writing of CVs, letters of motivation and mock interviews which will be corrected and help provided if necessary. This is followed by a self-reflective diary /blog and mini-reports (including the creation of a poster) during the internship which are read and commented on by the module coordinator on a regular basis. Finally, the student will have to complete an oral presentation at a seminar as well as an original portfolio. Specific feedback is provided after each of these components to help the students progress in these various formative assignments.
