62 students from Varna Free University "Chernorizets Hrabar" began their practical training in 19 training organizations - law firms, judicial institutions, construction companies and kindergartens under the project "Student Internships - Phase 2". Students study practically within 240 hours, individually or in groups, with the help and under the supervision of a mentor from the employer organization and under the mentorship of a university lecturer. Upon successful completion of the practical training, students will receive a certificate and a scholarship in the amount of BGN 600.

There is great interest in the project from the students. In less than a month after the start of the reception of documents, 357 have registered in the information system, over 50 of them are in the Preparation stage, and 62 have already started their practice. Another 23 students will start their practical training on 6 July. The most active are the future specialists majoring in Law, Business Administration and Management, Administration and Management, Tax and Customs Control, Circular Economy, Financial Audit, Psychology, Judicial and Forensic Expertise , Countering Crime and Public Order Protection, Construction of Buildings and Structures, Water Supply and Sewerage, Fashion Design and others.

The project "Student Internships” provides an opportunity for yet another year for students of VFU "Chernorizets Hrabar" to supplement their good theoretical training with practical skills and knowledge that are extremely important for their future implementation. For business partners, this is an opportunity to select staff according to their requirements and to provide not only conditions for practice, but also future employment of students," said Viviana Panayotova - a leading functional expert on the project.

Varna Free University started the reception of documents required for the project in early June 2020.
The registration for participation in "Student Internships - Phase 2" continues.

The students can register at https://praktiki.mon.bg  or contact the functional experts in departments, academic mentors and the Career Centre of VFU "Chernorizets Hrabar". Any student - bachelor or master, can apply for inclusion in the project, once within the framework of their studies for acquiring an educational qualification degree in the respective specialty. The students who study in specialties for which training is provided only for obtaining a master's degree are allowed to be included twice in practical training. The practical training must be in accordance with the studied specialty or professional field.
