If you are interested in a placement (or: traineeship, internship, reseach assignment, thesis work, thesis assignment, ...) during (part of) your exchange periode, then please read the following information carefully.
Although in the sections below the word 'placement' is used, the activity itself could be labelled many things, as you might have guessed from the introductionary sentence above.
For an assignment in a company, we usually use the term 'placement' or 'internship', but our regular students are also going to a company as part of their thesis work. If you would be able to do such assignment in the context of an exchange programme, then it is up to your home university if they accept (the results of) such assignment as a placement or as thesis work.
For an assignment in a research group, we usually use the term 'research assignment'. In general such assignments will be registered as a 'capita selecta' course (for Msc exchange students; scroll down to see some examples) or "201800519 Research assignment for exchange students" (for BSc exchange students). However, if (the results of) such assignment is used in your home university as 'internship', 'course assignment', 'thesis work', 'graduation work', or something else, that is completely up to you and your home university.
Please continue reading to find out what kind of assignments we support and what you have to do in preparation to such 'assignment', before actual applying and/or before arriving here.
