This is a practical course (taught in two parts) designed to guide students in creating and preparing for their internship. The first section of the course (first semester), takes the format of a workshop, and is held every other week. The workshop's role is to prepare students for choosing their placements and applying for their internships. The workshop begins by introducing students to the world of development, through providing an overview of the global framework for aid allocation, and highlighting the main actors and professional areas within the field.
The second part of the course (second semester) focuses on preparing for the internship and assists students in planning their internships by creating joint Terms of Reference with their host organization and in preparing for their internships.
