Our Worklinks programme provides an opportunity for students to experience a variety of professions in ´real life´situations. With the kind collaboration of businesses from a variety of areas, students were able to gain very useful hands-on experience of life in the workplace. Victoria Bauzá, our University and Careers Guidance Counsellor worked in collaboration with the Parent's Committee to place 176 students in over 100 companies in Montevideo and the provinces.
This successful programme continues to be very worthwhile and enriching for the students whilst also developing and strengthening the bonds with the wider community. Internships help students to better understand their possible field, cement (or at times change) their career interests and generally provide them with an insight into the world of work.
