Check the prerequisites
For an internship within Operations Research and Logistics, please check whether you fulfill the prerequisites.
Start looking for internship possibilities
Start looking for internships really on time, preferably six months in advance.
As 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 meeting
Internship 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.
Contact your study advisor
Send the written consent of your study advisor that you are indeed eligible for an internship with ORL to firstname.lastname@example.org. Without consent, you cannot start. Since the internship for most students is the last part of the master programme, please start arranging your study programme approval (SPA) on time.
Send your internship plan for approval
After finding an internship provider, you construct a preliminary internship plan. This is a detailed 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 goal(s) of your internship. You send this preliminary internship plan to the coordinator for approval (email@example.com). Our coordinator checks whether the internship is at appropriate academic level (see criteria), and in turn assigns a WU supervisor.
Sign the internship contract
Once the preliminary internship 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 the coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org, who will make sure that WU signs the contract.
In case you use the contract form of the internship provider, please execute a check using Appendix II Checklist when other internship contracts are used of the MSc Internship Course guide.
Please, send a copy of your three-party signed contract to your WU supervisor, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
