Internship during your Bachelor's programme - CS

In the final year of the Bachelor’s programme you will do an internship. This internship will give you the opportunity to gain relevant work experience, and apply your academic knowledge in a professional setting. Moreover, the internship will enable you to develop and apply practical skills while using the knowledge you have gained during the programme.

The basics

  • The entry requirement for the internship is 72 ECTS credits from the Bachelor's programme excluding electives but including Introduction to Communication Science and Methods of Communication Research.
  • It is your responsibility to contact organisations and to apply for a position.
  • The internship should be related to the field of communication science.
  • Before you are allowed to start an internship, you have to hand in a short internship proposal. After this proposal has been approved by the internship coordinator, you can start your internship. More information about the procedure can be found in the internship manual.
  • The internship should take at least three months.
  • Conducting research is an important part of the internship: this should take up at least one-third of your working hours.

The internship guide

You can find everything you need to know about the internship in the internship guide below. 

Working from home is still advised by the government. This guideline will in most cases also be in place for internship positions. Under normal circumstances, a physical work space on location is a mandatory requirement, but this requirement will not be in place until further notice. Students who applied for the internship for semester 1 2021-2022 will be informed seperately about the most up-to-date requirements.

Internship walk-in hours

Due to the regulations regarding the corona virus, there are currently no walk-in hours. Students who applied for the internship will be informed as soon as the on-campus walk-in hours can be recommenced. We also strive to update this webpage as soon as more information is available.
