Internship

The MSc study program includes an academic internship. The internship is a learning period during which the relationship with professional practice is emphasized. This means that the internship is carried out outside Wageningen University. Selection of a suitable host institute or industry is done by students themselves. Inspiration and suggestions may be obtained from previous thesis experience, fellow students, departmental scientists or the list below.
