How we improve our graduate employability
An indivisible part of the full-time bachelor study programme is the student s´ internship. These internships form the fifth semester and are undertaken at ŠKODA AUTO or its suppliers within the Czech Republic. Many students of the follow-on master study programme participate in internships whilst studying on a part-time, thus gaining not only theoretical expertise, but also relevant work experience. Students with an excellent command of foreign language can apply for internships abroad. Abroad, students usually undertake the internship within the Volkswagen concern or the ŠKODA AUTO group.

The programme is part of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union and focuses on the mobility and cooperation of higher education institutions in Europe.
