3. Internship (8 weeks)
4. Reflection days (1 week)
5. Internship (3 months)
6. Wrap up (1 week)

During the internship outside university they acts as a science advisor, who analyses a business or policy problem that needs scientific knowledge to solve it. The student then writes a report with well-argued suggestions to solve the problem.

The student implements the skills he/she has learned in the modules Science and Business and Science and Policy. The students gets acquainted with the organization (structure, culture, personality) by performing tasks within the organization. Thus the student gets an valuable experience in a multidisciplinary environment.

The internship starts in January and ends in June/July. The student must find an internship by himself, with help of the SBP-staff. It is important to start looking as soon as possible.

The student is supervised by a SBP-staff member, a beta science staff member and a supervisor of the organization where the internship takes place.

The internship should have a beta science aspect (25-50%), a business and/or policy aspect (25-50%) and sufficient prospects for implementation of the advice.

Opmerkingen From those who enroll between April 1 and April 14, second year master students who will do the entire SBP-variant have priority. After April 14, admission will be in order of registration.
The Science Business and Policy Master Track is in English. However, to some extent it can be considered bilingual. Some projects for Dutch organizations, especially policy organizations, can be in Dutch. Also some tutor groups for Dutch projects and personal development can be in Dutch. Some internship organizations prefer a Dutch advice report. In short, in projects and tutor groups the practical situation is leading, whereas international students will always be able to chose for an English project.
