Best Practice Guide

The partner universities, under the leadership of Adam Mickiewicz University produced a Best Practice Guide on "How to successfully carry out a distance internship", based on a Europe-wide survey of the four target groups to identify those who have had experience of this internship format. These groups were then interviewed to collect tips and tricks, identify common obstacles and challenges they encountered, and the solutions they implemented.   

The people involved in the successful conduct of a "distance" or "hybrid" internship are divided into 4 target groups: students, employers, academic advisors and university administrative staff, in order to identify those who have had experience of this internship format.    

Recommendations, tips and tricks, obstacles and challenges but also advantages of remote formats they experienced and the solutions they implemented were identified and collected.  

Thanks to their answers to the survey and those collected during the interviews, we were able to create a Best Practice Guide which you can download here.

It is meant to be accessible and ever evolving, and everyone will be able to find the necessary information for the successful completion of a distance learning internship, at any time: whether it is questions about the administrative documents and procedures, efficient communication and integration with co-workers, mentoring or supervision, our Best Practices Guide gathers all of this information in one place.
