  • Internship can give you as a student relevant work experience.

    You get work experience, professional contacts, practical learning and important experience outside the university.

    During your internship, you work as a student with a relevant issue in a company or at a research facility.

    It is possible to take an internship in all periods throughout the academic year. If the internship involves travel, it is often easiest to complete the internship during block periods or the summer holidays.

    You can choose to work intensively for a few weeks in a block period or work 1 day a week over a longer period.

    What you need to do:

    1. Find a relevant workplace / company
    2. Contact the workplace / company
    3. Find a supervisor at NMBU - BIOVIT
    4. Write an agreement/contract with your academic supervisor at BIOVIT and the contact person at the company /, where the expected learning goals and results are described
    5. Deliver an agreement/contract to the study advisor, who registers you for the internship course
    6. Make a proposal for relevant syllabus literature in collaboration with the academic supervisor
    7. Carry out your internship, read the syllabus, and write a reflection report
    8. Submit and present your reflection report the semester you are enrolled in the course

    The number of credits can vary, so you should also find out the scope of your internship.

    • 125 hours corresponds to 5 credits
    • 250 hours corresponds to 10 credits
    • 375 hours corresponds to 15 credits

    As a starting point, 2/3 of that time will be spent at the company and 1/3 of the time on work with your reflection report (including reading the syllabus) and making your presentation.

    At the Faculty of Life Sciences, there are several internship courses depending on the subject area you are interested in:

  • For å unngå smitte til SHF sin besetning og eventuelt andre norske besetninger, er det et krav om MRSA-test etter hjemkomst fra utveksling for IHA studenter som har jobbet med dyr i utlandet.

    Norske husdyr har god helse. Det er få alvorlige smittsomme dyresjuk­dommer i Norge. Det er også lite av smittestoffer som smitter fra dyr og kan gi sjukdom hos mennesker. Denne gode helsen ønsker vi å ta vare på. Og du kan bidra!

    Contagion security - requirement for an MRSA test for IHA students after returning from aroad

    In order to avoid infection to SHF's herd and possibly other Norwegian herds, there is a requirement for an MRSA test after returning to IHA for students who have worked with animals abroad.
