During the third term of the MSc programme in Development Studies, Global Studies and Social Studies of Gender, 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 or Social Studies of Gender programmes.
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.
