Traineeship & Study Abroad


At the 3rd semester of the M.Sc. programme in Urban Planning and Management at Aalborg University there are good possibilities of internship – in Denmark or abroad. You can work in an enterprise, a public institution or a NGO.

An Internship provide you with an opportunity to apply the theoretical insight and the methodological knowledge obtained during the 1st and 2nd semesters to a real life situation in a Danish or international setting.

The choice of internship is made on the basis of your interests. During the internship, you participate in the activities of an organisation and collect information for the project report. The project report is expected to have both a theoretical and empirical part relating to the actual experience of the internship.
