Have you always wanted to gain practical experience in your field during your study? The internship minor is the perfect opportunity. You will perform specific tasks in an organisation of your choice. An internship is an efficient way to explore the professional field, to bring theory into practice and to gain a better understanding of your own qualities and shortcomings. After you have finished you internship minor, you will have more knowledge about your capacities, wishes and ambitions. Furthermore, employers scan your CV on practical experience, so this minor may give you an advantage over your competition.

What is the time period for an internship?
The minor requires you to invest at least 420 hours (15 ECTS) in your internship. This equals three months of full-time work, but it is also possible to spread the hours over a longer period of time. The exact start and end date will be determined in consultation with your internship guide.

How do I find an internship?
An online database can be found on the website of Career Service Arts, in which you can find internships that possibly fit Arts students. You can also check the Facebook page. If you are unable to find an internship through the online tools, the internship coordinator will be eager to help you find a good fit. It is also possible to search for an internship yourself. There are many possibilities, as long as the internship is somehow related to your programme and the level is appropriate for a university student.

Internship abroad
The internship minor also gives you the opportunity to do an internship abroad. The procedure is basically the same as for an internship in the Netherlands. If you have specific questions about scholarships however, please consult the International Office.
