Who is the best EAL internship host?

When students graduate from an AP or a top-up study programme at Lillebaelt Academy (EAL), they have valuable job experience in their bag from the mandatory internships.

EAL celebrate the relations with the internship companies by honoring the internship company with the title EAL Internship of the Year. The prize is given to a company who has given the intern a particularly good internship experience. 

It is the students themselves who nominates their internship company for the award – it is the students’ chance to give something back to the internship host.

Every EAL student (Danish and international) from both Vejle and Odense who have had an internship in a Danish company during the autumn 2017, or the spring 2018 can nominate their internship company.

The selection process

After a review of all nominations we will reduce the nominations down to five finalists who will present their internship to a jury on 19 April on our campus in Odense. The Jury will choose a winner on that same day. The jury consists of representatives from the local business life, and from the EAL.

The winner will automatically move on to a national competition among all nine business academies in Denmark. Denmark’s best academy internship will be chosen 16 May in LEGO House in Billund, Jutland.
