Study&Work

STUDY & WORK – INNOVATIVE WAY OF COMBINING STUDYING AND WORKING

The key element of our programme is to develop cooperation with business, aimed at providing UCTE students with the opportunity to start working during the course of studies or after graduation. This innovative model of studies is addressed to those who are interested in high quality education and who at the same time want to gain the necessary work experience.

Innovative solutions to implement our curricula enable our students to combine learning with work, starting from the very first year of study. The students gain practical education in two ways:

- contract of employment, contract of mandate or contract for specific work in partner institutions, companies or enterprises;
- several months of professional internships, in accordance with the international agreements signed by our University.

Gaining knowledge in several steps and confronting it with practice give our students a sense of their capabilities and predispositions. A curriculum vitae developed during the course of study significantly facilitates an effective entry into the labour market just after graduation.

Individual career paths for students are developed according to the chosen field of studies and majors, in different areas within a given field of studies. Students may choose from the variety of jobs:

In the travel industry:

- restaurant manager
- hotel manager assistant
