The ICE programme has a strong emphasis on enhancing the students’ career prospects. The content of the programme has been designed around modules that develop the students’ theoretical and practical skill set, and allow them to apply their academic knowledge to real life case studies. The students’ preparedness for working life is further advanced by on-site visits, internships, and project work that also provide important opportunities for networking.
Employment opportunities for ICE graduates range from cultural and public management to international projects in private companies. Potential employers include the EU, the UN, and other national and international organisations; ministries; universities; the municipal sector; non-governmental organisations; and the media.
The ICE programme includes the minimum of 15 credits of studies in Professional Contexts. In the compulsory Career Clinic course you get a chance to polish your CV or LinkedIn profile, and get to familiarize yourself with various employers and working environments. The optional traineeship and project work modules allow you to gain hands-on work experience that will develop your skills and strengthen your professional identity.
All students undertaking a traineeship as part of the ICE programme are eligible to apply for the University’s traineeship subsidy. More information about this funding can be found here.
ICE students are strongly encouraged to avail of the resources of the University’s Career Services in seeking advice on traineeship opportunities, and making choices and plans for the future. You may familiarize yourself with their services here.
