Internship KTI

An internship allows you to fully participate at an academic level in an organisation that is (semi) professionally engaged in innovation and communication issues, and to reflect on the choices they make professionally.

Finding an internship position

There are different ways to find an internship position:

  • Check the available internships below and get in touch with the education coordinator
  • Contact organisations of your interest and send an open application letter
  • Check the list of previous internship topics.

The document 7 steps in MSc internship with CPT supervision provides an overview of what is expected of you before and during the internship period.

Please note that your internship must always be approved by your supervisor. Be sure to read the internship documents before making arrangements with an organisation.

Internship abroad

If you will do your internship in a European country, it is possible to apply for the Erasmus scholarship for internships. Find more information on the WUR Study Abroad website.
