Start looking for internship possibilitiesStart looking for internships really on time, preferably six months in advance.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.orgAs soon as you know you want to have your internship supervised by us, send an e-mail to our internship coordinator (from here referred to as 'coordinator) via email@example.com. In parellel, you fill out this intake form so that the coordinator is informed on your study background and the period in wish you wish to start. After we have received your form, you will be invited to our intake session.
Come to our intake meetingInternship intakes are organized bi-weekly. Here, the coordinator summarizes the main steps in organizing an internship, explains the internship trajectory and answers any remaining questions.
Send your internship plan for approvalAfter finding an internship provider, you construct a preliminary internship plan, based on the template that you can download via Brightspace ORL Thesis & Internships (you can enrol yourself!). This is a description of the main activities of (the department of) the organization that you will be working for, the project(s) that you will be involved in, and the professional goals of your internship. You send this plan to the coordinator for approval (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our coordinator checks whether the internship is at appropriate academic level (see criteria), and in turn assigns a WU supervisor.
Sign the internship contractOnce the plan is approved by the coordinator and the student is assigned to a WU supervisor, the agreements between the internship provider, the WU, and the intern need to be stated in the internship contract. It is strongly advised to use the WU contract form for generic agreements on the formalities of the internship (downloadable here). WU is the last party to sign this contract. Send a partially signed contract to email@example.com and cc the coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). Laura de Graaf will make sure that WU signs the contract. Check the FAQ below to see what steps to take in case the host institution prefers to use the host institution's template contract.
Please, send a copy of your three-party signed contract to your WU supervisor, study advisor, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Since the internship for most students is the last part of the master programme, please start arranging your study programme approval (SPA) on time.
