Even though it is highly advised to gain academic work experience through the internship, students with sufficient relevant work experience and PhD-aspirations may opt for the research practice, in consultation and agreement with the study advisor.
The MSc Research Practice is a research project under supervision of a Wageningen university supervisor that replaces the internship in the programme of the student (only possible for students of MSc programmes that allow students to choose for a Research Practice). The Research Practice should differ from a regular thesis in the following way:
- The Research Practice has additional learning outcomes related to career preparation and personal development.
- The Research Practice has additional assessment criteria related to the above mentioned additional learning outcomes.
