Each of the four participating Master’s programmes require students to complete one or several research internships during their master’s degree.
TESS students are required to complete an extra internship of at least one month (in addition to what is expected for their master’s programme) in order to receive the additional 6 ECTS for TESS. Students are free to choose when they would like to arrange their internship, from semesters 7 to 10 of the master’s degree. However, it is important to note that according to current legislation the maximum duration of internships is limited to 6 months per host insitution per academic year. For certain master’s programmes it is thus necessary to complete the TESS Reinforced Internship in the first year of master studies.
Furthermore, students are encouraged to seek internship opportunities abroad with the support of our many international partner institutions while the Going Abroad Grant provides valuable financial support for travel. Each student will also receive €900 per month for their TESS internship up to a maximum of two months.
