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 Bart 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 Applied Ethics Programme Book for more information.
