Omschrijving Fit for practice 1 focuses on the student’s personal and professional development. The course is set up to support MMIT students with preparing a portfolio describing their interests, goals, personal SWOT analysis, plan of action, and reflection regarding the four competence roles that are central to the Master programme. These four competence roles are Researcher, Communicator, Collaborator, and Professional.

In science, there are many possibilities, opportunities and challenges. During the two-year master programme, MMIT students are actively guided in their personal and professional development. In (mentor) meetings, master classes, and workshops students learn more about their ambitions and capabilities and how to communicate and reflect on those.
At the end of year 1, students submit a personal portfolio in which they reflect on their ambitions & developments and set-up & evaluate an action plan in order to become an all-round MMIT professional.
