Internships

Internship Outline

Internship, or LiA (lärande i arbete), takes place at the end of the education (20-30 weeks depending on the program) at a company. With the guidance of a mentor, the students gain insight into problem-solving, workflow and communication in production.

Students are free to do their internship in any country of their choice. We have a handful of students every year who go abroad to countries anywhere from Germany and the Netherlands to USA and Japan.

What companies can expect of our students

Companies hosting internships should expect students to be present during normal work hours and that they should work actively and participate in production. The students are at the company to learn a profession in real-life conditions and to form contacts within the industry. They are still students though and require guidance, but they should participate in the work as much as possible.

What we expect of the company

Companies are expected to provide a responsible mentor who will help them get started and provide support during their internship. Students should have a place to work and tasks to complete. Ideally, they should be part of a production team, but the most important thing is that they have meaningful assignments and learn to work in a genuine environment.

What companies can expect of FutureGames

We have a time friendly follow-up process that allows you to focus on production. In short our follow-up process exists of following steps:

  • Step 1 – About three to four weeks in we contact the company to see if the start has been satisfactory. If there are no issues, no further contact is required from our side until the next step.
  • Step 2 – Roughly half-way into the internship we will contact you to set up an internship visit. During this visit we would like to have an in-depth talk with the mentor as well as with our student(s).
  • Step 3 – At the end of the internship, we will contact you to verify that the last few months have gone as planned and if you are happy with the entire experience.
