The typical internship lasts about 10-12 weeks, in which case the student submits a reflective essay every two weeks – for internships of different duration, the time gap can be adjusted, as long as it is equidistant and leads to five reflective essays in total, covering the full period of the internship. The UCD supervisor provides brief feedback, typically by email or via BrightSpace.
