    Internships are mandatory for all of our regular programs. Any special conditions that an applicant is known to have when enrolling in a program (health status, family situation, being a minor at the time the internship starts, criminal record, etc.) may limit options for internship placements and job offers. Under no circumstances may these conditions be used to obtain an exemption to the rules for completing the required program internship.
