SDC Internships

An academic internship is a chance to put your academic knowlegde into practice in an organization or company. There are a wide variety of possibilities to do an internship with SDC.

Internship at SDC

SDC supervision for your internship depends on the Master programme and on the topic of your internship. You are eligble for SDC supervision for your if 1) SDC has a role in your master programme and 2) the topic of your internship has a clear link with the research interest of SDC.

Finding an internship

Students should think on their own about interesting internship organisations. Additionally, we have 2 sources of information:

  1. SPS Brightspace page that includes an internship database, and possible internship vacancies. See below for the link to the Brightspace page.
  2. SDC publishes internship vacancies on social media channels (Instagram and Facebook) and on their weblog.

Brightspace Space Place and Society

Internships are organised within the cluster of Space Place and Society (SPS). SPS has an information hub on Brightspace called SPS Thesis and Internship. This Brightspace offers general information, internship vacancies and more. Enroll yourself at this Brightspace page by clicking this link. Alternatively, you can use the Discover tool on Brightspace to find the course.

Intake

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 this link.

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.
