Internship is a mandatory part of your programme at KEA. The length of the internship depends on the programme you are attending.

  • AP or top-up degrees: 10 weeks internship corresponding to 15 ECTS credits.
  • Bachelor degrees: 20 weeks internship corresponding to 30 ECTS credits.
  • Optometry: 1,5 years internship corresponding to 90 ECTS credits.

You cannot do an internship for more or fewer weeks, and the working hours of your internship must be 37 hours per week. You cannot move your internship and do it at a different time.

As a starting point, the working hours should lie in the daytime on weekdays. However, the company and the intern can agree to place some of the hours in the evening or at the weekend.

If, for documented health reasons, you cannot do a 37-hour internship per week, you may apply for exemption for your internship to last more days but of shorter hours.

Apply for exemption via SDBF.DK. You could also talk to KEA Study and Career Guidance under Centre for Guidance and Academic Support before applying.
