An internship, a ten weeks full time commitment, is a requirement in the fourth period of the programme. It offers you the opportunity to gain practical experience in your field of study and to assess your own knowledge and skills, better preparing you for employment after graduation.

You will find additional important information in the Programme Book that will be sent to you by your programme coordinators.

Arranging an internship

You are responsible for finding your own place for doing the internship. You can discuss your choices for internship in the Research Lab course. A list of institutions where students have interned in the past and institutions that are possibly interested in hosting an intern will be made available in the Research Lab course.

Internship products and assessment

You will complete the internship with an internship report and a research report. The reports will be assessed (pass/fail) by your supervising lecturer.
