So what is an internship, exactly? From the UAT Intranet:
Essentially, what you as an employer get is a part-time employee who you pay in experience. What the student gets is their first real professional gig working in the field they are studying. It's win-win.
Internships last for 15 weeks (a UAT semester) and come in two varieties - the 3-credit internship, which amounts to 150 hours spread across the 15 weeks; and the 6-credit internship for a total of 300 hours. so you as an internship sponsor need to provide the student with enough work to fill either 10 hours per week or 20 hours per week for the whole semester.
So as you start planning your activities for 2011, think about providing a professional experience for a UAT Digital Video student. Need production help? Post-production? Editing? Animation? VFX? We have students that can help and can benefit from your experience and knowledge. Our next semester begins in January, so don't delay.
