Covid-19: Questions and answers for students in internship or work-study programs

Covid-19: Questions and answers for students in internship or work-study programs

For work-study students (apprenticeship)

– “Remote working? Unemployment? How is this going to happen?

Apprentices are employees of a company and have the same rights. The company must therefore offer the same solutions to its apprentices as to the rest of its teams, such as the right to work remotely if the equipment allows it, or the possibility of short-time working.

In the lack of solutions, the apprentice can contact his employer and the Career Center, which will be able to answer his questions.

– “Do I have to go back to school?

Physical presence on campus is suspended for all students. As of March 23rd, the online courses will be available.

During the weeks initially reserved for their presence on campus, the apprentices will have the possibility, with an internet connection, to stay at home to follow the lessons.

 

– “Will I be able to pass my exams?

Students will be able to take their tests and exams remotely. This pedagogical continuity will allow students to continue their studies and to validate the number of ECTS credits they need to complete their semester.

 

For students in internships

– “My internship may be suspended. Can this prevent me from graduating? “

All the teams in the programs and at the Career Center are aware of the exceptional nature of the situation and are mobilized to ensure that the student’s career path suffers as few consequences as possible.

The teams will therefore be flexible in adapting and adjusting the validation criteria for the professionalization periods.

– “Do I have the right to benefit from remote working? “

Unlike apprentices, students on internships do not benefit from the same arrangements within the company. Depending on the collective agreement, remote working can be possible and has to be a priority. On the other hand, an internship does not allow for “chômage partiel”. If no measures to maintain the activity can exist, it is possible to settle a temporary suspension of the internship.

If you are a student in this case: you are not alone, the Career Center teams are available to help you in this situation.

– “I’m a company hosting an MBS student and I don’t know how to handle this situation. “

The Career Center is available to help you in this exceptional situation. You can contact the Career Center as well as the students at the following address: CareerCenter@montpellier-bs.com
