There are ample opportunities for Master’s students to carry out research within the YEW project. Topics are diverse and related to various disciplines like pedagogy, education, psychology, sociology etc.
Students conducting their research abroad usually stay for 3-6 months. Most students are able to find additional funding for their accommodation and travel expenses. At all times, students are supported by a supervisor from the University of Groningen as well as a supervisor from the host university. Find out what research grants you can apply for in the RUG Grantfinder.
