Students can participate in (parts of) an empirical research project that is conducted and supervised by a member of the FPN or FHML scientific staff. Students can apply for an available project from the list of project descriptions; available on the ‘RM Electives’ section on EleUM, which is published and updated in December of each year. The application procedure is also described on the ’RM Electives’ section on EleUM. Students who are selected to participate in a research elective may assist in designing the experiment or observational study, acquire empirical data, be trained in using measurement equipment, analyse empirical data, or take part in other parts of the research project. Students must write a short research report of maximally 5 pages about the practical experience obtained. Students are expected to spend 84 hours on the Elective: Research course, which includes time spent on practical work and the research report. The principal investigator of the project will supervise the practical work and grade the research report. Each student may complete maximally one Elective: Research course. The Elective: Research course must be completed and graded before the start of the internship.
