Find an internship
- Start looking for an internship approximately three months before the starting date. The essential requirements for the internship position are: the duration should at least be 6 weeks full time, the host organization should have a reasonable size and you should be able to work at an academic level.
- Having trouble finding an internship? You can contact the internship coordinator for some advice by sending an email to email@example.com. However, finding a suitable internship is ultimately the student’s own responsibility.
I found an internship, now what?
- Contact the internship coordinator for approval and supervision
Make sure you have a signed Approval Form (pdf) two weeks before the start of the internship. Then contact your internship coordinator to get approval to start your internship.
- Sign an internship contract with the host organisation
See ‘Contracts and Insurance’ below for more information.
After your internship
Make an appointment with your internship coordinator for the assessment of your internship. The internship coordinator will decide whether you have fulfilled the requirements for getting 7.5 or 15 ECTS, based on your portfolio.
Your portfolio should contain the following items:
a. A copy of the Approval Form (pdf).
b. A copy of the Assessment Form (pdf), filled in by the internship supervisor.
c. Some of the work you wrote during the internship, in English or Dutch.
d. An internship report containing a summary about the company, your duties there, your internship assignment and whether you think you have fulfilled it, your reaction to the assessment form, your positive and negative experiences and your plans for the future. This report should at least consist of three pages.
Make sure the evaluation takes place within 6 weeks after you finish your internship.
