If you are looking for information on internships for Photojournalism, Journalism, or TV and Media Production, please go to www.mediepraktik.dk
In order to be approved as an Internship Organisation for a DMJX-student in one of the three bachelor programmes listed above, all organisations or businesses must:
- have at least one employee trained within the relevant profession on the permanent staff
- offer relevant tasks, developing the competences that the intern should obtain during the internship, professional as well as personal
- appoint an Internship Supervisor with the competences and time needed to ensure that the intern gains the insights specified in the Learning Agreement
The Internship Coordinator at the relevant study programme is responsible for approving the Internship Organisation. The approval is based on an assessment of the Organisation’s professionalism and capacity concerning workload, turnover, and supervisional and managerial resources.
Students may not be interns in an organisation or business owned by themselves.
In order to ensure the proper framework for the internship the following papers must be filled out:
The Internship Organisation as well as the intern must sign an Internship Agreement specifying the terms and conditions for the internship. When the school receives the signed Internship Agreement along with an individual Learning Agreement, the Internship Organisation will receive an email confirming the approval of that specific internship.
Internships under the Media Production and Management programme as well as the Visual Communication programmes must use this Internship Agreement (PDF).
Internships under the Communication programme is advised to use the Internship Agreement.
If the Internship Organisation choses to use a different document, it is the responsibility of the Internship Organisation and the intern to ensure that no less than those requirements mentioned in the DMJX Internship Agreement are met.
Together, the Internship Organisation and the intern must fill out an individual Learning Agreement specifying the tasks to be carried out and the competences to be acquired during the internship.
This Learning Agreement will be used by the Internship Supervisor throughout the internship and may be adjusted on a regular basis but it is important that any adjustments do not diminish the focus on the learning insights to be gained by the internship.
At the end of the internship, the Internship Organisation must fill out an Internship Certificate verifying that the intern has completed the internship. This Internship Certificate must be emailed to the intern who is responsible for uploading it to the school.
In case the intern wishes to include confidential information from the Internship Organisation in the written assignment following the internship, the Internship Organisation may ask for non-disclosure. The Intern as well as the Internship Supervisor may sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (PDF).
This confidentiality will include the programme’s Internship Coordinator as well as internal and external examiners at the final exam.
