dc.description.abstractMakerere University mainstreamed field based learning (internship) into all its undergraduate study programmes. Initially internship was conducted only in professional courses like Education, Social Work and Law. However, due to criticism that the University was producing graduates who are not in touch with the realities in the workplace, the University rethought it approach and now requires all second year undergraduate students to undergo internship. Although this change presented several opportunities, mainstreaming internship across a multiplicity of study programmes also presented numerous challenges. This paper provides an ethnographic reflection of three of the university’s academics (involved in the supervision of students’ internship) on these challenges. It also discusses their lessons from participating in the implementation of the internship programme.en_US
