How many hours per week should I plan to spend at the internship site? How long do internships last?

November 17th, 2009 by Sean

You need to be available at least 2 days per week for your internship. It has been our experience that the student intern who is not a consistent employee for a large block of time does not integrate as well with the organization, does not receive the kinds of projects that they can carry to completion, does not gain exposure to the full range of activities at the site, and does not participate as fully in the strategic decision making process of the organization.

The national average is approximately 40 hours per credit (i.e. 3 credits equals 120 hours.) The duration of the internship will depend on the number of credits you are registered for, how many days per week you are available and the needs of the organization.
