Full course description
Going on an academic internship (12 ECTS) means that your internship and thesis are connected. A large part of the work that you do in the internship will be used in your thesis. It requires that you will be well prepared before you start the internship and that you will be able to influence what you work on during the internship. Using the internship work in your thesis can take different forms. One of the options is a research internship. In that case you will carry out a research project as your internship task, the results of which you can use to (partly) answer the research question of your thesis. Another option is that the internship organization will function as a case study in your thesis research. This requires that the internship will give you the opportunity to make an in-depth study of the functioning of (part of) the internship organization. This requires access to documents, meetings and the possibility to interview key figures in the organization. It is also possible that you test out a theory in practice during your internship, for example by designing and carrying out certain programmes or projects and testing the results. You will be writing a report at the end of the internship.
