Finding an internship
Students should think on their own about interesting internship organisations. Additionally, we have 2 sources of information:
- SPS Brightspace page that includes an internship database, and possible internship vacancies.
- RSO publishes internship vacancies on social media channels (Instagram and Facebook) and on their webblog.
Brightspace Space Place and Society
Internships at RSO are organised within the cluster of Space Place and Society (SPS). SPS has an information hub on Brightspace called Space Place and Society: Thesis and Internship. This Brightspace offers general information, supervision profiles, thesis vacancies and more. Enroll yourself at this Brightspace page by clicking this link or alternatively use the Discover tool and search for Space Place and Society.
As soon as students have found an internship, they need to plan a meeting with the education coordinator Jessica de Koning. She will direct you to a possible supervisor for your internship and registers your internship in Osiris. Intake meetings can be planned online via .
Without an intake you are not registered as an internship student and cannot do the internship. Allow for 2 weeks to arrange the internship supervision and contract.
