Practical experience

Practical experience ASH/(X)PRX

Students may undertake their practical experience in the commercial sector for a minimum duration of 4 weeks. Practical experience has been secured thanks to the Chinese for Practical Experience project (reg. no. CZ.1.07/2.2.00/15.0289), which assists in arranging and mediating practical experience for students of the Department of Asian Studies UP, and thus contributes to optimizing the eventual entry of graduates into the labour market. The Chinese for Practical Experience project has a portfolio of collaborating organizations including potential employers and providers of practical experience for students (e.g. BAEST, ŠKODA AUTO, Czech-Chinese Association, SOZE, SUZ, People in Need, and other companies and/or organizations).

Students that enrol into the practical experience subject need to contact the coordinator of the project with whom a short interview is subsequently undertaken.  Together with the coordinator the preferred area of interest and where it shall be carried out will be defined, after which a suitable employer shall be identified.  The duration of work experience, the dates of its realization and any particular focus/specialization will all be agreed upon.  Subsequently, the work experience will be arranged and confirmed by the employer.  Before the commencement of practice the coordinator together with the employer shall discuss its terms (objectives, work role, performance, and rules).  Communication between the student and the employer shall be established by the coordinator.  Students will then be sent on their placement, during which the coordinator will oversee its progress.

The following documents (written on prescribed forms) shall be forwarded to the coordinator after the completion of the work experience, to enable recognition of credits:

  1. An account of the completed work experience, including – a description of activities undertaken, description of benefits gained and any perceived negatives, and possibilities for future follow-up and integration with the student’s current field of study;
  2. A summary of work activities;
  3. A presentation on the practical experience – this shall be carried out in the Workshop for Practical Experience (see below) where students will present and assess their experience and its benefits (always held once per semester);
  4. Downloadable documents include: final report template (doc), summary of work activities (xls) and presentation template (ppt)

The “final report” for work experience completion and the “summary of work activities” must be endorsed by the employee’s signature and the employer’s stamp.

Students may undertake their practical experience in the commercial sector only once per block of study.

An information leaflet about practical experience in the field of Chinese Philology can be found here inpdf. In this leaflet you will find the most frequently asked questions about undertaking practical practice.

Workshop for Practical Experience

This workshop is held regularly twice per year at the end of the summer and winter semesters. It is intended for all students who are interested in completing their work experience during their studies at the department. At the workshop, students that have recently undertaken work experience present their experiences and are available to answer questions to the "newcomers".
