Internships

In previous years, students of the master's programme Applied Ethics have fulfilled interships at, for example, Triodos Bank, municipalities, The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Council for Animal Affairs, The Embassy of the Netherlands in London, and at various NGOs and political parties.

For more information please consult Bé Mijland (the internship coordinator of our department) or the Programme Coordinator. In most cases, students organise their own internship, if needed with support from the internship coordinator and teaching staff, who have a broad network in government departments, companies and NGOs, and public institutions. Given the time needed to organise an internship, it is essential to think and decide about this early in the programme (October). Before that time you will be invited to an information session to learn more. Also, check out the Factsheet Applied Ethics for more information.

If you want to go abroad for an internship, view Going Abroad.

Internship products and assessment

You will complete the internship with an internship report and an internship product (e.g. research report or policy piece). The reports will be assessed and graded by your supervising lecturer. They will use the following documents:
