The report commences with a brief overview of the Fellowship research and provides insight into the benefits of mobility. Erasmus mobility is viewed as a means to promote the Department of Culinary Arts in the international culinary arena via the student’s skills and performance. It is clear from this research that the international internships provide exceptional opportunities for students to integrate and learn in different cultural environments. It is argued that this research addresses many of the unanswered issues related to internship before, during and after the experience: issues of knowledge, identity, integration and the student’s personal development. This research framed the development of an internship model termed “Academic Connection Internship Development “ (ACID) that supports better learning and student development during national and international mobility. The research provided insight, understanding and knowledge in relation to student development and concerns when living and working in another country and internship in general.
