Work placement in the university can be of several types depending on the year of studies of students: educational, educational-introductory, linguistic, pedagogical, industrial, pre-diploma, research, etc. At the same time, the main goal of the work placement is to ensure continuity and consistency in the acquisition of professional activities by students.
Terms of placement are established in accordance with the curriculum and academic calendar, taking into account the possibilities of the educational and production base of the university and the companies that are placement bases and the level of theoretical readiness of students.
The chair makes up necessary preparation of the students placement 2 months prior to its beginning. Before the start of each of the types students’ placement, the chair conducts an introductory conference to familiarize them with normative documents on placement procedures (placement program, methodological recommendations); objectives and goals of placement; rules for safety in places of work placement (with the obligatory signature of students in the introductory briefing on Occupational Health and Safety at the chair); requirements for trainees; order of registration and delivery of reporting documentation on work placement.
Before placement, the student must receive from the relevant chair the following documents: the program, the filing paper, the working schedule of the student, the diary-report on the professional work placement; recommendations and consultations on the process of having work placement.
Trainees sent to organizations that are the bases of work placement cannot change the place of work placement after the corresponding order is issued at the university. In case it is necessary to change the place of work placement, the term or the head of the organization in the order in case of refusal, according to the illness of the trainee (the certificate of illness is valid for a week) or for other valid reasons with the provision of confirming documents, the chair prepares an office note addressed to the faculty dean justifying the reasons. The dean’s office forms an order, and draws up an application for academic work no later than 7 calendar days before the commencement of work placement.
Students should in an obligatory way receive applications to work placement, signed by the dean and confirmed by the faculty seal (F ENU 705-09-16 Placement Application).
The place of passing the pre-diploma / research placement of undergraduate students should correspond to the theme of the thesis / dissertation research.
In the event that a student has an academic debt/deficiency for placement, they must go through a vacation or during a period of theoretical training according to the schedule.
Based on the results of all types of work placement, students submit to the relevant chair a diary-report on the progress of work placement and a report that is checked by the head of work placement and defended before the commission created by the order of the head of the chair. The results of the defense of the report are assessed by a differentiated test according to the established rating letter system of assessments. The defense of work placement reports is carried out according to schedules with registration of the minutes (F ENU 403-02-13).
