    Saludos,

    Quisiera que me ayuden a traducir al inglés "prácticas profesionales" dentro del siguiente texto.

    Teníamos que hacer prácticas profesionales que la universidad pedía como requisito.

    Mi intento:

    We had to do .................. that were essential for the university.

    Alguna sugerencia con la traducción del resto de la frase será bienvenida.

    Gracias de antemano.

    Son "professional practicums"

    We were required by the university to do professional practicums.

    I think the context here is that the university is requiring professional practice before granting the student admission to the university. If that is the context, then professional practice would be the correct English, and the sentence would also have to be rearranged.

    As an example, some law schools require that a prospective candidate for an LLM degree already have some professional practice before being admitted post J.D.

    On this one I think we need more context.

    Zarcero: the "Prácticas profesionales are when you finish your studies at the university and before they give you the degree, you go to any of the businesses and work for a period of time. You do not do practicas profesionales before you enter the university.
