1. Introduction

External internships are training activities carried out by students in companies or institutions and entities. The main objective is to allow students to apply and complement the student’s academic learning, favouring, at the same time, the acquisition of skills, which prepare them for the exercise of professional activities, facilitate their employment and foster their entrepreneurial capacity.

The organization and management of the internships corresponds to ADEIT, Fundació Universitat_Empresa de la Universitat de València, in coordination with the Internship Commission of the Faculty of Economics.

All the practices of the different degrees are supervised by an academic tutor of the Faculty of Economics.

What is the relationship between the student, the Company and the University?
Given the training nature of these placements and, as established by the regulation of external practices, there is no obligation on the part of the company or institution to offer the student a working role as this does not form part of the agreement, and neither does the company have any commitment regarding any subsequent incorporation of the student into the company.
