These guidelines describe the steps, processes and deadlines you should keep in mind when planning your internship. For specific rules and guidelines for following an internship in the context of your Bachelor’s, Master’s and Research Master’s programme, we refer you to the documents “Regulation for internships as part of Bachelor’s programmes” and “Regulation for internships as part of Master’s and Research Master’s programmes”, to which these guidelines form an appendix.
As part of your Bachelor’s, Master’s or Research Master’s programme you have the option of following an internship. Under the supervision of one of the Faculty’s lecturers (the internship lecturer) and a staff member from your internship organisation (the internship supervisor), you spend some time working for a company or organisation. The work you perform there should be in line with what you have learned as part of your study programme and it should contribute to the work of the internship organisation. In addition, you are required to spend some of your time at the internship organisation conducting your own internship assignment, the results of which are expressed in the final product you agree on beforehand.
The position of the internship within the curriculum depends on your study programme. Please refer to the e-Prospectus or your coordinator of studies.

The Internship coordinators can help you find an internship position and coach you through the job application procedure. They have office hours for which you can make an appointment. They read the first version of your internship plan before it is sent to the Board of Examiners and sign the internship agreement on behalf of the Faculty. They are also the people to whom you hand in your internship report and evaluation at the end of your internship.
