Practical learning is the very important nowadays, so we wanted to create environment which is real, not artificial work environment.

It is all about contacting with workmates, realizing real work tasks and duties and having responsibilities for our own decision.

They also became friends with their Greek mentors, who were for them not only support during a work, but also person who can they speak with about their problems, about their future profession plans etc. We didn’t predict that they will get so close to each other.

During their internships project participants will acquire a series of competences, which can be divided into two subcategories: key and professional competences and soft competences, so-called soft-skills. Consequently, students will not only take part in internships as part of the core curriculum, gain valuable experience through the use of their theoretical knowledge, but also acquire new, open bases, strengthen their self-confidence, thereby enhancing their CV and increasing chance to find a dream job in a learned profession.
