ATTACHMENT 2- INTERNSHIP INFO MASTER PSYCHOLOGY FOR COMPANIES/ORGANISATIONS

INTERNSHIP MASTER PSYCHOLOGY FOR ORGANISATIONS; SUMMARY

The internship during the master's phase (10 EC) will provide the student with an opportunity to explore the practice of psychology whilst expanding his/her network. As an organisation, it is an economical way of acquiring the assistance of an almost graduated psychologist for a project or significant 'job'. Moreover, the scope of the assignment can be wide, varying from writing an advisory report or a field study to the design or testing of a tool, training course or assessment instrument (the internship product). If desired, the student can also combine the internship with the (empirical) thesis research (also referred to as the master's thesis). It is imperative for the internship that the student works on a complex assignment (university level) and that the assignment has a psychological component appropriate to the subject matter of the specialisation concerned. The content of an internship will be set out in an internship plan and any agreements will be recorded in writing beforehand (for detailed information please consult the internship guidelines).

INTERNSHIP SIZE

An internship entails 10 EC or 280 hours. For the master's programme, the internship is (usually) completed in one period. This means approximately 3 to 4 days per week (28 hours) over one 10 week period. In consultation with the organisation offering the internship and the (internal) internship supervisor it may be possible to adjust the number of days and/or the period of the internship. This will of course be subject to the programme remaining feasible for the student and taking into consideration the combination with other subjects/thesis commitments.

INTERNSHIP ASSIGNMENT AND ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES

A master's programme internship consists of a master's assignment together with additional activities. The internship assignment will take up 50-80% of the time and the 'additional activities' 20-50% of the time.

Internship assignment

Prior to starting the internship, the student is required to formulate a clear and concrete 'internship assignment'. This internship assignment is required to be a project or task which as a rule would be performed by a psychologist in the field of expertise. The assignment should also benefit the organisation offering the internship. Regarding level, the internship is required to reflect the anticipated level of knowledge and expertise a master's student would be expected to possess (university level). Depth achieved through the use of scientific literature is an obligatory element. Examples of suitable internship assignments include 'writing an advisory report', 'designing a website' and 'developing an assessment instrument’. The organisation offering the internship is expected to allow the student during the period of the internship time to work on the assignment and to write-up a report.

Additional activities

Prior to starting, to complement the internship assignment, the student will also formulate what additional activities/work the organisation offering the internship can expect from the student. The student will assist in the regular work of the (supervisor within) the organisation. Additional activities can include all kinds of 'tasks' for the organisation, provided sufficient time is set aside for fulfilling the internship assignment and writing-up the accompanying report. Examples of additional activities include 'taking care of (part of) a training course, workshop or lecture’, ‘testing (new) products or instruments’ and ‘attending departmental meetings’.

INTERNSHIP AND SUPERVISION

The field of psychology is wide, and many organisations can potentially offer an appropriate internship. The key element here is that the activities offered fit with the specialisations of the UT's Psychology master's programme. During the internship in a company or institution, the student will be supervised by both an external supervisor and an internal supervisor. The organisation offering the internship will appoint the external supervisor who will be tasked with the care, guidance and supervision of the student, as well as maintaining contact with UT's internal supervisor. The external supervisor will have an academic background, preferably a psychologist. The internal UT supervisor will be a psychology programme lecturer at the BMS faculty, tasked with the supervision and assessment of the student.
