Participants will work alongside experienced farm professionals and learn the ins and outs of the piggery and dairy farms. In addition, the program includes cultural activities and excursions to give students a well-rounded experience of Danish life.

Ms. Dranchuk explained that this internship opportunity is open to students from ages 18-29 who have the skills needed and are interested in working with animals. They also stressed the benefits of gaining international work experience, which can be an asset in today's global job market.After the presentation, there was a Q&A session where the students had the opportunity to ask the speaker questions about the internship program. Ms Dranchuk was happy to answer the questions and provided detailed information about the program's requirements and possible ways of integration with the internship program of the XU College of Agriculture.
The event was a great success, and the attendees left feeling excited with the new opportunity laid before them. The session came to a close with the students lining up to get into contact with the Agro-Practice representatives.
