The University of Tartu Futulab is a platform that supports your career and creates a number of opportunities for development. Here we will give you more detailed information about what a student can do in the Futulab environment and what opportunities it creates for you.
In Futulab the student has an opportunity to
1. Search internship and job offers.
2. Join the project-based internship and/or submit his/her own project idea.
3. Add their profile and be more visible to employers.
4. Find information about events (incl. seminars, workshops, etc.)
5. Join the Leader Program.
6. Book an appointment with a Counsellor in UT Counselling Centre.
The internship and job offers are visible to everyone (incl. to students from other universities). A student can distinguish internship and job offers and search them by location, field, and language. Before going to an internship, students must get acquainted with his/her institute’s internship system.
For a successful internship, students must get acquainted with the internship system of their institute or turn to their internship coordinator.
The project-based internship is a university-wide course (SVMJ.02.014) that all students (incl. students from other universities) can take as an elective or optional course. Students can participate in the project-based internship as a team member and/or as a project idea author. For example, solving the idea or problem submitted by an organisation or individual, gives student an experience of a real working environment and therefore the opportunity to acquire practical experience in addition to theoretical knowledge. The course takes place twice a year, in the autumn and spring semesters. The dates for submitting a project idea or joining a project are found on the project-based internship subpage.
Only students of the University of Tartu can add their profiles. For that, go to https://praktika.ut.ee/en/students/, click on Add profile, log in with your UT user account and fill the blanks for uploading the profile. Adding a profile is an opportunity for the student to make themselves visible to the employers and stand out. The employer can get acquainted with profiles and contact a suitable student.
