Abstract:

This study examines 364 tertiary students’ internship learning effect and its influencing factors to serve as a school reference for the development of internship education measures. The results show that students’ internship self-efficacy (ISE) has a significant direct effect on ‘internship learning effect (ILE)’, and ‘internship awareness (IA) ‘has a significant effect on ‘internship learning effect’ through ‘internship self-efficacy’. The influence pattern and empirical data of ‘internship awareness ‘and ‘internship self-efficacy ’ on ‘internship learning effect’ has a good fit.
Contribution/ Originality
This study contributes in the existing literature that students’ internship self-efficacy of internship awareness and internship learning effect have provided them with chances to learn internship competence and attitude, which may be helpful for their future employment.
