After choosing the place of internship the students are given internship file to be filled out by their supervisors in the places they are doing an internship. These supervisors fill it out describing each task the student and work performance, stamps and sign it.
Students doing their internships after second year of study are not required to defense their internships in front of commission. Internship defenses are required only for students doing their internships after their third year of study. These students defense their internships in front of the committee and get Pass or Fail grades. The criteria for evaluating the internships are the internship files of students and evidences from their practical work in the internship place. These evidences could be published articles, press releases, TV and radio programs and other audio-visual projects and multimedia projects. Students are required to bring the copies of their works to their defense.
