Animal Production Systems - MSc thesis, research practice and internship


At the end of the BSc-programme the planning for the MSc-programme starts. It is important to start early on thinking about subjects for your thesis, internship or research practice, and academic consultancy training (ACT). For a thesis, having an appointment 3 months in advance is convenient. Appointments for internships should be made 6 months in advance, because teachers are busy and communication with places for internships does not always run smoothly. Sometimes alternatives are necessary. The mandatory internship is 24 ects. Please consult the University Study handbook for extension possibilities.

Possible topics

In the final stage of your studies it is mandatory to complete a thesis. A thesis includes conducting research independently. Students have to demonstrate if all theory learned can be put into practice. To get some idea of possible thesis subjects at the Animal Production Systems group, have a look at our research projects on our website and check our Brightspace site. Instructions for acces to our Brightspace site are given at the bottom of this page.

Contact and Appointment

Please contact in time. Make an appointment with the APS-secretariat (via mail to APS Office). Each student has 30 minutes consulting time on Tuesday morning between 9.00h and 12.00h only. Make an overview of your studies in advance, including the courses that you did not pass yet. Think of possible thesis subjects and motivate your choice, so that the interview will run efficiently. You may use the attached document to select from.
