STK offers work placement course to its BA and MA students
From this autumn, students taking a BA degree in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies or an MA in Gender Studies at the Centre for Gender Research will be able to do a work placement as part of their degree.

The aim of the work placement course is to help students see how the knowledge they gain through their studies can be put into practice. As an intern, the student will be part of the day-to-day operations of the workplace and will be able to acquire work experience and establish contacts that could be helpful when applying for jobs.
The student is responsible for finding a work placement at a relevant organization, institution, or business. They can, for instance, apply for internships within communications/publishing/media, teaching, public administration, arts and culture, business, voluntary organizations, or other relevant industries.
The work placement can be spread out over one semester or concentrated into a shorter period. The course should be taken in the fifth or sixth semester of a BA degree, or in the second semester of an MA degree. The work placement can also be carried out as part of an outgoing exchange abroad.
The Centre for Gender Research is very happy to be able to offer this opportunity to our students, and we hope that the work placement courses will ease the transition from studies to working life.
