The internship lasts 360 hours (9-10 weeks). It can be performed at 2 different institutions with a
minimum duration of 150 hours (4 weeks) for each part.

A part of your internship (maximally 150 hours) can be performed internally in the Department of
Psychology. Internal internships cannot be performed in the same lab in which you will perform /
have performed your Practical Project psy260!

Your supervisor must be a psychologist. If your supervisor is NOT a psychologist, please

A blank internship certificate and the report form can be found on the programme website.

To generate ideas, a folder with information on internships that other students have performed is
available in the office of Dr. Cornelia Kranczioch.

Topics for projects will be presented in a colloquium at the end of the summer term.
