    On-the-job trainee

    - A university student goes to some company to practice what he or she has learned at school is called a "on-the-job trainee" or "apprentice", right?

    Thank you very much, Teachers

    namloan.
    In many parts of the world the person would be called an "intern".
    An "on-the-job trainee" is a more general term for a way of learning to do any job, not necessarily one that requires university study.
    An "apprentice" is usually somebody learning a skilled trade by working with qualified tradesmen (electrician, plumber, printer etc) for a set period of time.

    not a teacher
