Internship assignments vary in length, between two and three months, depending on the availability and academic requirements of the intern, as well as the needs of LGFC.
Assignments are available on a fulltime basis throughout the year in a breakdown of three months (January-March entry and June-August entry).
LGFC does not pay for internships. The costs associated with internship must be borne by the nominating institution; or by the student, who will have to obtain financing for subsistence and make his/her own arrangements for travel, accommodation, among others.
