Do you have an innovative idea, a question or an unsolved problem that you are unable to get round to? Working with students of Wageningen University & Research (WUR) could be the solution. Society Based Education connects questions from society to education at WUR. To do this, we help to focus your question, formulate student projects and we look for a suitable Bachelor’s or Master’s programme at WUR.
There are various Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in which students work in teams on questions from entrepreneurs, companies and non-profit organisations. Students work on assignments in the Food and Living Environment domain. These are short-term assignments on which students, with different or the same study background, work full or part-time for a period between 3 and 8 weeks. We can also translate the assignment into an internship or thesis assignment. Internship and thesis assignments are long-term assignments on which one student with a specific expertise works for 4 to 5 months.
Depending on the type of question, its size and to what extent the question is mono or multidisciplinary, we try to match it with a course in the education at WUR. When a match has been found, we fine-tune the research question in cooperation with you, so that the question also matches the learning process of the course of the students.
