    Guidance during internships

    When you are on an internship as part of your studies, you will be provided a supervisor at the place where you are performing your internship and a separate academic supervisor as part of the programme. VIA offers regular supervision, evaluation, and assessment.

  • VIA University College expects international students applying to take a portion of their degree course at VIA University College to have already completed part of their degree course at their home university. This would be the first year of a B.Sc. 

    We work in close cooperation with the students’ home university to ensure that each course the student completes successfully at VIA University College is credited at the home university. 

    It is mandatory to provide a negative MRSA test and an unblemished criminal record.
