An internship is a compulsory part of every master programme at Wageningen University & Research. The internship serves the purpose of a learning period, an introduction at academic level to the practical field of your future professional career.
An internship is approved after consultation with your study advisor and internship supervisor of the chair group. The internship (and thesis) co-coordinator's role is to help students to find internships and topics and to get them in touch with supervisors with expertise in the particular field of study. The coordinator also approves the internship. The normal procedure is that students register with the coordinator first. The current internship coordinator is Karin Peters for MLE students and other students.
