SIMR43 (30 credits) & SIMR44 (15 credits), Autumn 2021
The internship course offer Graduate School programme students an opportunity to try the theories and methods from the programme in an organisation.
Internship for Programme Students
During the third term of your programme at Graduate School, you can do an internship for the whole semester, 20 weeks (30 credits) or for half a semester, 10 weeks (15 credits). The internship course is only offered in the autumn term and is only open for students enrolled in Development Studies, Global Studies, Social Studies of Gender, and Middle Eastern Studies programmes (please note that students in the Middle Eastern Studies programme may only take the 10 week internship course due to other third term requirements within their programme structure).
Requirements for Eligibility
In order to be eligible to do the internship course you need to have passed all the mandatory courses during your first year as a programme student. This means you must have one year (60 credits) of coursework within your master programme, including the two profile courses for the programme amounting to 30 credits and 30 credits of courses in theory of science (at least 7.5 credits) and research methods (at least 15 credits). If you feel unsure about you eligibility, please contact Graduate School’s academic advisor.
