I don’t have a mandatory internship requirement. Can I have a voluntary internship position?

Internships help preparing for professional life, knowing more about the sectors and fields, and help you make informed choices. However, it should not negatively affect your success and participation in academic life. In this respect, it is not appropriate to do internship within the academic calendar (Fall and Spring terms). Koç University encourages students to make internships during the summer term. During the summer term, both mandatory and voluntary internship insurance is covered by the University.
