Contract-type Internships

Some companies and organizations have exchanged memorandums of understanding with APU and offer our students internship placements through these agreements. Students who wish to take part in this program can apply through the university. List of the host institutions will be disclosed during the internship orientation and published on Campus Terminal or on Career Office's website. Since each institution has its own requirements, make sure you check thoroughly before applying. Meanwhile, internships that have met certain criteria are also eligible for course credits.
