The second part of the one-year master’s programme (from period 3 onwards), is devoted to arranging and conducting a research internship and a clinical internship for students choosing the clinical option. For the research internship students explore a research issue within their specialisation. Students choosing the clinical option of the Master’s degree in Neuropsychology will conduct their research internship in relation to a clinical topic. Students commence their internship with the writing of a research proposal. Students complete the master’s programme by writing a thesis on research undertaken during their internship. The internship can be undertaken at the institute where the clinical internship is carried out or at Maastricht University. In all cases, a student’s research proposal and master’s thesis will be evaluated by two assessors. At least one of these assessors is a (senior) researcher at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN). The other assessor might be a (senior) researcher at, for example, the institute where the student collected their data. Information about research internships offered by external institutes or faculty members can be found on EleUM > Students Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience > internships. This site also provides a detailed guide with practical information about the criteria for the research internship and the master’s thesis.
