Internships abroad

From the 3rd of July students are not allowed to travel abroad for study-related activities. With regards to internships abroad, only in exceptional cases, permission will be granted. From August 27, requests for students of the Faculty of Humanities will be taken into consideration if the internship takes place in the student’s home country or if the internship takes place at a maximum of three hours travel (by car/train) from the Netherlands. Please note: Even in these cases, after the board of examiners has approved the internship plan, it is necessary to ask for approval from the International Incident Team. This request can be submitted via this form, only after your internship plan is approved.
