Students

Please note: planning an internship in the Netherlands as an international UU student? There are special rules and conditions regarding permits and insurance which can be found on the site of the Nuffic.

Internship agreement model for internships in the Netherlands

Utrecht University has a standard agreement for students with a EU/EAA, Swiss or Surinam nationality.

The Nuffic has developed a standard internship agreement for non-EU/EEA students usable for an internship in the Netherlands. Utrecht University has an additional clause about liability insurance:

According to Dutch law (art. 7:661 lid 1 Burgelijk Wetboek) the student-trainee that causes damage to the host organisation during his/her internship is, in principle, not liable for this. Deviation from this principle can only be done in written agreement and as far as the student-trainee is insured for this (art. 7:661 lid 2 BW).

  • Utrecht University had included in its liability insurance the students of Utrecht University, without limitation of faculty, during their external internships, provided that this internship is done under the auspices and with the knowledge of the University.

Internship agreement model for international internships

The European Association for International Education (EAIE) has developed an international internship agreement usable for an internship in a country other than the Netherlands. Utrecht University has an additional clause about liability insurance:

Deviation from this principle can only be done in written agreement and as far as the student-trainee is insured for this (art. 7:661 lid 2 BW).
