Our 4 week internship provides the real-life job experience at a company of your choice according to students ECCEDU's test results.

Internships are always under the close supervision and guidance of senior company representatives, who look after students, coach them and help them grow - for this reason, each company doesn’t take on more than 1 or 2 students.

During their internships, students get assigned personalized tasks, designed to fit their personal and professional interests. Their internship work also typically includes the practical side of office work, such as research, translations, the drafting of documents, the writing of memoranda, or attending meetings.

Upon Arrival to Dubai

Upon arrival, we welcome the students at the Dubai Airport. After check-in at a hotel, our ECCEDU staff helps them to familiarize themselves with the city and arrange basic needs for their stay. Our goal is to prepare and maintain a hospitable, friendly, and welcoming environment for all our students, considering their personal needs.


Our team arranges various team-building events for the students throughout the lecture period of the program. We engage students in plenty of free time activities and introduce them to local culture in an entertaining way.


An ECCEDU certificate is provided at the end of each Program during an informal awarding ceremony. In addition, the internship companies grant letters of recommendations or internship certificates during this occasion.
