The internship will last four weeks (which is 20 working days). These can be carried out in one or two institutions so that their total time shall reach four weeks. 4. The main term of apprenticeship is during the summer holiday months after the end of the second year (fourth semester). In justified cases, the student may, with the written consent of the Dean of the Faculty, serve the practice in other terms provided that this will not interfere with teaching activities. 5. Students can take professional practice in public and private institutions whose activity is related to a broad range of biological issues. 6. It is recommended that apprenticeships are implemented in units such as: - various levels of the public administration and local government, for example, respective units in the municipal offices of cities, municipalities, counties, marshal’s offices, regional councils of local government, environmental management agencies - academic and research institutions, including institutes and universities - herbaria, natural history museums, botanical and zoological gardens - greenhouses, egzotaria, institutions for arranging green spaces - national, landscaping and forestry parks - biological laboratories operating at health care units, waterworks, industrial facilities - environmental education centres, NGOs and foundations that work for the protection and improvement of the natural environment. 7. Students are responsible for finding the institution where they will do their practice and organising it themselves, i.e. agree on individual responsibilities and tasks with the institution. 8. The main purpose of professional practice is to familiarise students with the functioning of the institutions in which the work is performed in accordance with the education of the biology student as well as to be practical preparation for searching for a position after graduation. Professional practice not only allows students to supplement their theoretical knowledge, but also shows them how to use this knowledge in practice. During the practice, the student is required to take an active part in the tasks that are performed in the place of the practice and to familiarise themselves with the issues concerning the organisation and functioning of the facility where the practice takes place. 9. Students who can document their careers or activities compatible with the education profile for Biology can have it counted as professional practice. 10.
