Credited Internship Programme

About the Credited Internship Program (CIP)

The One-semester full-time credited internship is a program organized for Master students in order to help them further prepare themselves to enter the job market after graduation.

This program incorporates an element of supervision and guidance throughout the students’ internship experience from the primary steps of signing a contract with the employer to final evaluation and granting the credits.

Finding an internship will be the student’s responsibility. However, a program coordinator will support students to find an internship position, supervises administrative process and secures students’ access to all career related resources of SBS-EM.

Participation in this program is not mandatory, however students are strongly encouraged to attend the internship program in order to get an inside look to the potential working environments within their study field before graduation and extend their professional network inside and out of Belgium. Experiencing an internship will also differentiate your résumé among competitors and increase noticeably your employability in this competitive job market.

Key Deadlines (might be subject to change)

November 30th - the deadline for first registration. If you wish to be part of the program, you can send an email to internship@solvay.edu. This primary registration does not guarantee your acceptance in the program.

- 15th August (for Q1) and 15th October (for Q2) - deadline to find an internship position, fill the internship agreement and communicate it to the program coordinator for approval. The sooner you apply, the faster you will receive the internship team’s approval and hence have time to look for another position in case of rejection.

September or January of the following year - you will start your internship and sign the convention provided to you by the program coordinator. Earlier procedures can be coordinated in case you start your internship sooner. After signing the convention you can start your internship. Please note that you are required to finish your internship before the start of the next semester.
