This thesis is an evaluation of two internships undertaken by the author in Halifax, Canada and Beijing, China. It includes a portfolio of research prepared during the internships. The papers are critically reviewed, a skills assessment in conducted, and areas and themes beyond skills assessment are reflected upon. It is found that the internships have been very positive experiences which have contribute to the research methods, professional maturity, and skills development of the author. An area of improvement suggested by the author is for all stakeholders to structure a portfolio assessment prior to internship, to improve both the evaluation and the efficacy of the experience.
