The internship allows 3rd year Bachelor students to gain relevant experience at an existing company by providing and (partly) implementing high quality, practically relevant and academically supported recommendations. This can best be compared with a consultancy assignment.
The internship will be awarded with 12 ECTS. The internship lasts at least 336 working hours, which should be spread over 10-20 weeks.
The supervisor guarantees to be accessible for the student, shows a supporting and stimulating attitude and provides the student with timely feedback when requested.
Students will be assigned to a supervisor after their internship proposal has been approved by the internship coordinator.
The internship supervision process typically consists of the following elements:
Next to the three face to face and/or group meetings (e.g. at the start, half-way, and at the end of the internship) the supervisor will frequently receive a 'scrum-style' report in which students indicate what they have done, what they will do (including milestones), and what hurdles, problems, struggles they are facing.
In case of supervising multiple students, to create some synergy and efficiency, supervisors can organise sessions with all students they supervise. This way students can share their experience and provide/receive feedback.

Internships allow students to gain relevant experience and companies to get valuable insights and meet future employees.
