The higher education institution experience
Tasks most suitable for a virtual internship take the form of a well-defined project with clear milestones. This format also maximises the flexibility inherent in the virtual setting
The student experience
Virtual internships are suited for autonomous, mature students. Such students would be most likely enrolled in postgraduate or master programmes. Another very suitable target group are the adult learners.
The company experience
Virtual international internships are well received by companies and organisations which do not have rigid internships procedures, for which space is at a premium and in which employees are competent with teleworking tools. Virtual internships also offer companies the advantage of a lower requierement for constant task supervision
