Placement procedure-
After this internship, you are able to:
  • study a scientific research question as a member of a research team under the guidance of a staff member
  • produce, critically interpret and present (in written report and oral presentation) scientific data following the standards of scientific integrity, guided by a staff member
  • take part in a scientific discussion on your research topic
  • position your research project in a broader scientific and societal context
  • create your own career perspective being aware of the available master’s programmes guided by the opportunities on the job market
The final part of your bachelor's programme is a research internship of 8 weeks that gives you the opportunity to apply all the knowledge and skills that you acquired over the last three years. The internship not only is a proof of competence, is also gives you a first, hands on, insight in doing scientific research. In general, lab courses are not representative and give you only a partial impression of research. Also, the bachelor internship can help you choose a master specialisation.
Usually, the bachelors internship is done at the university because it is your first experience participating in actual research. However, it is always possible to look for an external internship after consulting with your student advisor.

Presumed foreknowledge
Propedeuse (the complete first year) + at least 60 ec more of bachelor's courses.
