Bachelor in Design - Internships

Create a better reality


The Bachelor in Design follows the traditional model of summer internships. Taking advantage of their break, students have a chance to explore internships on their own time. The School provides a career advisor that will seek to help Design and Architecture students to take full advantage of their professional opportunities.

Having the chance to gain professional experience during your degree not only improves your technical formation, but gives you a global perspective of the profession. This experience throughout the course of your degree gives students the ability to explore the various areas of design and better understand what they wish to do in the future.

Our students have interned for a number of acclaimed design studios, both on their own and through the university’s resources.

My role as a designer was to managed their website, social media and create content such as illustrations, which appeared in Vogue for their 13th anniversary publication.
