1.1 The system
SMS is the system in which the internship and graduation process of most of the study programmes at the UT is administrated. This system is coupled to OSIRIS, which means that the up-to-date information about your study (progress) and your home address is available in SMS automatically.
SMS is divided into three parts: the Application Form, the Assignment Form and the Notification Form. All of these forms are used in the internship and the graduation processes.
More information about the procedures in the UT internship and graduation processes can be found on the external training website of the UT.
1.2 The process
0‑1 Overview of the Student Mobility System
As the picture above shows, the internship process involves various parties. These parties all have access to SMS and view and evaluate information, or contribute information. The most important parties involved are:
STUDENT: As a student user, you can enter three forms. When you start your preparations, you can indicate this using the Application Form. The moment of application can be half a year or more in advance of the actual assignment. Furthermore, an Assignment Form has to be submitted a few weeks in advance of the start of the assignment. Lastly, you have to submit a Notification Form within 14 days after the start of your assignment.
If you have submitted a form, the coordinator involved in your assignment will get an e-mail notification.
COORDINATOR: The coordinators and assistants can see and change all information in SMS. The forms submitted by a student become available as tabs for this group of users. If a coordinator indicates that you can do an internship, BOZ will be notified per e-mail. Then the BOZ employee can couple you to a course code in OSIRIS.
BOZ: The task of a BOZ employee is to couple assignments in OSIRIS to the assignments in SMS.

2.2 Summary of the types of assignments
Six sorts of assignments can be administrated in SMS: Minor, Internship, Graduation, Courses abroad, Other 1 and Other 2. The internship coordinator could choose to delete an assignment to make submission of a new assignment possible.
A submitted form cannot be adjusted or thrown away. Any possible change has to be done by an internship supervisor.
