Internships in the 1-year Master



Research proposal

Before you start your internship research, you need to complete a research proposal or protocol. This research protocol is evaluated by both your first and second supervisor. Only if this protocol is approved by both supervisors/assessors you may start with your internship research. Please note that the research proposal must be submitted within 6 weeks of commencing the research internship.

A complete research proposal consists of the following parts:

  • a brief theoretical background of the research
  • the question(s) addressed by the research
  • a description of the research plan
  • a description of the research methods to be applied
  • a description of the techniques to be used for the processing and analyzing of data
  • a reference list
  • a timetable

As a guideline, the length of the research proposal should be between 1600 and 2800 words (4-7 pages), excluding reference list and timetable. You can of course use large parts of this research proposal for the introduction and method section of your master’s thesis.
