Curricular Internships

Combining academic training with hands on experience

The Master in Transnational Governance shapes young talents into future policy leaders, by equipping students with the necessary analytical and professional skills to take on leadership and policy-making roles in a globalised world. This starts with a mandatory curricular internship between the first and second year with one of our international partner organisations.

As the internship is a training experience, not a work contract, it is generally not paid. Students must therefore plan for this activity with their own budget, while also considering all the logistics involved (i.e. accommodation, transport, insurance, VISA when needed) in pursuing an internship abroad.

The internship will present the following timeline:
