Full course description
The Academic Skills course is closely connected to the research proposal and prepares students for their internship and thesis. This module offers students an opportunity to practice and apply academic writing and research skills, and prepares students for their research internship (including the writing of their research proposal and thesis). To achieve this, a series of assignments, workshops, and lectures is offered in the 3rd period (four weeks). In addition, students will be encouraged to consider their future career (inc. what their interests are/what career(s) they would like to pursue).
This module is not applicable for the Master in Work & Organizational Psychology, and (the subsample of) students of the Master Neuropsychology that complete a clinical internship.
The Academic Skills course has to be completed within 6 weeks after the start of a students’ research internship (so no need to have this finished at the end of period 3). To make sure that students can pass this course when delaying (the start of) their internship this course is open during the entire academic year. For most students, however, the academic skills course is focused on period 3 (January).
