Collaboration with students

There are many opportunities at Linnaeus University to enter into cooperative initiatives involving students, for instance in the form of work placements/internships, independent degree projects and more – a collaboration that benefits both parties!

There are a number of different formats for contacts with Linnaeus University students. Many degree programmes include work experience while other programmes have entered into partnership programme agreements. Other formats for cooperation can be in the form of guest lectures given by representatives of companies and organisations, study visit arrangements or participation in career fairs and other job recruitment events. If you have a project or commission which you would like to initiate in your company or organisation, Linnaeus University has the expertise on hand to assist you.

It is usually the case that students write a major independent project at the end of their degree programme. Independent projects are often the equivalent of a term's work.

We also work in close conjunction with representatives for the Studenter i regionen initiative.
