One of the highlights of your study career at NHL Stenden, no matter the study, is without a doubt your internship! It's while you’re doing your internship that you get to prove and discover what you’re worth. In our opinion, your internship offers you a taste of the “real world”.

  • Work in an international environment
  • Develop your network in the field
  • Find out how your ideas really work in reality
  • Learn to embrace the unknown
  • See your thesis having effect in the company you work for

Why an internship?

You do a longer internship in your third or final year depending on the degree you are studying. It's your chance to develop your international work experience, explore the field, find out what really motivates you and, of course, show how well you’ve mastered your subject. If it's an internship in your final year, then it may be intertwined with your thesis so you'll not only explore a question relevant to the company you're working in, but also advise them on what action they could take. Many of our students get to stay on or return to their intern company on graduation, so your internship really can be a launch pad for your career.
