The following steps might be useful to consider:

  3. At the end of the internship, BIOS will provide you with a signed document that you may submit to your school. The document will identify the internship, your mentor, location, dates, a short description of the research project and the hours dedicated to the internship
  4. Submit all completed documentation to your academic advisor when you finish your Bermuda visit. Make sure the final documentation is filed with your department, study abroad office or internship office at your home university
