The internship APH is a compulsory part of all Master specializations (except HBO-continuators). The internship covers minimally 13 weeks (20 EC) during which the student is posted at a company, research institute or university in the Netherlands or abroad. The internship has to be scheduled in the first or the second year of the master, has to cover at least 13 weeks (20 EC) and conducted with an external professional institute, university or company.|
The TNW master programs offer several opportunities for adding an international dimension to the knowledge and the practical experience of a student. Therefore the internship may be carried out in the Netherlands or abroad. We believe a stay abroad is a valuable component of the study; therefore stimulating measures like the Twente Mobility Fund (TMF-fund) and the Erasmus-scholarship are available.
The learning goal of the internship concerns experience to the future working field by performing a relevant assignment at an external organization. Judgment whether the project foreseen is of sufficient quality has to be performed by an academic supervisor. During this assignment, gained knowledge and skills at the study program can be applied in an actual working environment.
The internship is coordinated by the internship coordinator. Orientation for an internship has to start half a year prior to national internships and a year prior to international internships. This time is required for actual arrangements of the internship, such as getting an accommodation, visa and all formalities. Application for the internship has to be submitted by Mobility Online https://www.utwente.nl/en/education/current-students/mobility-online/
