Supervision during the research internship
|For an internal research internship:||First supervisor|
Advice and help on most aspects of your internship
|For an external|
The first supervisor is the person whom you can turn to for advice and help on most aspects of your internship. Usually, the first supervisor will help you with the selection of the second (faculty) supervisor, but in exceptional cases you may have to turn to the internship coordinator for assistance.
For the external internship, you will also need an additional UM faculty supervisor, who is a qualified member (i.e., lecturer or researcher with PhD or equivalent) of the faculty of FPN. It is the role of the faculty supervisor to maintain contact with the student while he/she is at the external institution. The faculty supervisor will also communicate with the external supervisor on a regular basis to ensure that the external internship runs smoothly.
The external internship is any research internship outside the FPN. For example, internships in other universities in the Netherlands or abroad, hospitals, and assessment centres are all classified as external research internship
If the external supervisor is qualified (completed PhD or equivalent), he/she may be the first assessor of your research proposal and your Master’s thesis. If the external supervisor is not qualified at that level, the faculty supervisor will act as the first assessor and an additional second assessor will be needed. You will be responsible for finding the second assessor yourself. However, the faculty supervisor and the internship coordinator can assist you in this. The external supervisor remains responsible for the assessment of the practical execution of the internship.
