Students experience work and industry projects in numerous different ways at Wittenborg
All bachelor's students are offered up to 6 months' (often paid) work placement in an international company or organisation, in or outside the Netherlands. Master's degree students are also offered the chance to complete an internship at a company in the Netherlands. Students can earn from €250 to the minimum wage per month for their work placement.
For examples of internships completed by Wittenborg students, read the following news articles:
Bredenoord, an international company from Apeldoorn that provides energy solutions, had Wittenborg student Ishebo Twijukye as an intern:
“What struck us was Ishebo’s willingness - no matter the task, he took it on. Interns of other universities can often be picky when it comes to tasks and assignments. Ishebo's theoretical level of understanding was more than sufficient and working with him was a pleasant experience. He impressed us with his connections in Uganda and Tanzania and was willing to do other tasks outside his intern assignments. We are open to more interns from Wittenborg.” - Zef Jansen, Export Department
Students are required to complete a number of project weeks, dealing with real-life cases instigated by external businesses and organisations. For more information on project weeks, see here.
