If you are interested in a placement (also known as a traineeship, internship, research assignment, thesis work, thesis assignment, ...), there are two options:
- Placement in combination with courses
If you are selected for a course exchange semester or a full year, you are free to include a placement in a research group in your exchange period. In this case, it would basically be doing self-study and/or an assignment, which can be labelled as a regular course in your final course list.
Many research chairs give the opportunity of doing an assignment for up to 30 EC, depending on their availability. Since you would be doing courses as well, you can contact a research group for your placement either before or after your arrival.
Please note, that the research group might not have availability. The sooner you contact them, the better. See the paragraph below ('Placement only') on how to apply in advance and what documents you should attach to your request.
- Placement only
Find a supervisor in your preferred research group and send him/her a request by email including your CV (curriculum vitae), ToR (transcript of records) and LoM (letter of motivation). Do include in the LoM what you are planning to do: to apply for placement only, or for a combination of courses and placement.
Only after you have received a positive response from your contact in the research group, you can apply through here.
- Placement course codes per faculty
Once you have received a positive response from your contact in the research group, you can choose the right course code and apply through here.
