Working experience/prao

Pupils from compulsory school or upper secondary school, can apply for a one week working experience in Vattenhallen. The duties, during your one week placement can vary a lot. You will participate in our daily activities. 

Booked visits from schools and companies come to Vattenhallen. During your week of placement, you will have the opportunity to meet some of these visits. Other everyday duties may include testing a new construction kit or getting an experiment station ready. You can also put together a construction kit of your own, to take home with you.

During the placement period, you will also get acquainted with the University as a place to work and study. You will meet lecturers, researchers and students. You are to document your placement week in a report, which describes what you have been involved in. 

You apply for the placement by filling in the Request e-mail form below; headings with an * must be filled in, otherwise the application cannot be sent. We will reply to you within a week. However, during holiday periods the response time may be longer. We reply to everyone who has sent in an application.  

Alternatives to internships / prao

Under the current circumstances with the pandemic the National Agency for Education have requested us to developed and collected activities, materials and information that can supplement parts of an internship week for compulsory school or upper secondary school pupils.

In collaboration with Lund University, Lund Municipality and IUC SYD we have therefore made a homepage for Alternatives to internships/prao (in Swedish).
