Internship
KADK students do internships as part of their education. An Internship is a credit rewarding component of the programmes at KADK and like other parts of the education, the internship has learning outcomes. The internship gives the students an opportunity to gain practical experience and test the competences they have gained through their education.

The students from Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Design must do an internship in the spring semester. If you have work assignments in the autumn semester, you can consider posting a job at the KADK BOARD for a newly graduated bachelor or for a student looking for a student job.

Can you get an intern from KADK?
Our students can do an internship both in traditional workplaces within the design and architecture business, but also in other companies, organizations and public institutions, who see opportunities in using architectural and design competences. 

Requirements and responsibilities for the internship host

In addition, the internship host must provide a supervisor who is responsible for facilitating professional discussions with the intern and for ensuring that the intern receives relevant design/architecture related feedback.

Before the commencement of the internship, KADK, the internship host and the student set up a contract describing the agreed work assignments for the intern and the internship period. 

Salary and SU
Internships are always unpaid but SU eligible. However, the internship host is allowed to give the intern a gratuity of up to DKK 3000 per month. In addition, the student may receive reimbursement for documented expenses during the internship, for example for transport, rent and telephone.
