Full course description
Part of the second semester of the one-year master’s program (from period 3 onwards) covers planning and conducting a research internship (research project). Under supervision, students first write a proposal for the intended research. After the proposal is approved, students commence the research and complete the master’s program by writing the thesis.
Each student has two supervisors who both assess the research proposal and the thesis. At least one of these assessors is a (senior) researcher at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN).
Students are referred to www.askpsy.nl for detailed information on and criteria for the WOP research internships.
- write a proposal;
- conduct a supervised research project;
- report on the research results via a master’s thesis.
Students can only start the Research Internship when they have obtained at least 8 credits of the compulsory courses in periods 1 and 2. In addition. Some Research Internships may require the completion of practical or skills training(s).
