Additional Internship Voucher Application Period in the Pandemic Situation

Uutisen oletuskuva
We have opened an additional opportunity to apply for an internship voucher from the University of Vaasa in the pandemic situation. The goal is to support students to get internships in their own study field.

The application period for the first phase is 27.5.-25.6.2020, for the second phase 1.-31.8.2020. The application period is based on the principle of continuous search, and in this first application phase, a maximum of 10 vouchers will be given in the application order for internships starting in June-August 2020. The number of vouchers to be given in the second stage will be specified according to the number of vouchers used and will be given for internships starting in September-December 2020.

You can apply for an internship voucher if you meet the requirements for receiving a voucher (see the requirements here) and you have obtained an internship that begins during the above mentioned time period and requires a voucher. Before making a decision, the student's studies are checked in the student information system. The student cannot graduate during internship. A voucher cannot be applied retrospectively for an internship that has already begun.

Apply by sending an open application to: harjoittelu(a)

The application must contain the following info:

  1. Name of the applicant
  2. Student number
  3. Study program
  4. Credits of completed studies (at least 160 ECTS)
  5. The employer
  6. Time of internship
  7. Reasons for the need for a voucher

After submitting the application, the applicant will receive a Personal Study Plan for internship to be filled in and an employer information form to be submitted to the employer. The forms must be returned to harjoittelu(a) within five (5) working days at the latest, otherwise the application will become void. If the requirements of the voucher are met, the applicant will be granted an internship voucher (value 1800 €) for the internship in question and an official internship agreement will be made between the university, the employer and the student by the University of Vaasa Career Services. The applications will be handled in the order of arrival. Information about the decision will be sent to the applicant by email.
