An internship programme refers to a period of work experience offered by an employer to students during their degree. We use “Internship” as a generic description for a range of work experience programs such as summer or winter school, vacation work, industry-based learning etc. The minimum period of work experience would be one week.
Job shadowing is about observing a person in their role to gain an insight about their day to day working life. It allows students to gain an understanding about a specific career. Job shadowing normally lasts 2- 3 days.
