Within the three-year programme, Leisure Management students complete a work experience period that will allow them to engage with the challenges thrown up by this stimulating sector.

Students can complete internships in organisations and businesses in accordance with the periods and availability specified by these institutions. Internship placements will be assigned bearing in mind the specific three-year study itineraries of each student, therefore allowing them to gain further specialised experience by means of these internships. 

Work experience objectives

  • Understand the various working contexts in the Leisure sector, and the various actors involved 
  • Integrate the concepts, methodologies and instruments learned during the programme, and apply them to a real-life challenge 
  • Test the design, execution and evaluation of tangible projects in the Leisure sector
  • Gradually assume professional responsibility
  • Engage with and reflect on the critical factors and challenges of the Leisure sector.

In addition to internships, the Department provides its students with the opportunity to spend semesters abroad (SEMP programme). For further information, consult the appropriate section of the Mobility Service website.
