Within all Master's programmes one or more research projects are mandatory. Please see ‘Study programme’ for general information on such projects in your curriculum. In many cases, a research project may be carried out outside of the university, in the form of an internship at a company or research institute. This can be in The Netherlands as well as abroad (see also: ‘study abroad’). You are required to fill out one or more forms in order to be able to either start or finish your extracurricular internship.

It may also be possible to do an extracurricular internship; sometimes less research-oriented but more geared towards applying skills learned in your Master's programme and getting a closer experience of a real company environment. Please ask your programme coordinator for opportunities within your programme. You can find some current extracurricular internship opportunities in the Stagebank.

You could also check the Career Services Internship Listings to see if any of the extracurricular internships interest you. Companies and organisations looking for interns from the university's various academic programmes often post their vacancies with us.
