Research Internship Applied Neuroscience in Education and Child Studies


NB Language spoken in course is Dutch unless English-speaking students participate

Admission requirements



The research internship is an ‘on-the-job’ training in doing research, with a focus on getting experienced with using neuroscience methods and techniques (cognitive paradigms, EEG/ERP, heart rate, skin conductance, neuroendocrine measures, eyetracking) for data collection and data analysis.

Enrolling in a research project:
The Research Internship is directly linked to the ongoing research projects within one of the lines of research of the Institute for Education and Child Studies. Students will complete the Master’s project and the Research Internship within the same research project. The Research Internship involves a supervisor (the researcher, who supervises the practical part of the internship) and a mentor (who organizes group meetings on theoretical internship topics) . The coordinator announces which research projects are available for participation and students can register for one of these in November. For the Research Internship it is highly encouraged to start with the ANECS master in September considering the relevant courses that precede the Research Internship that starts in November (block II).

Mode of instruction

Students participate in ongoing research and will be supervised by a researcher (supervising the practical part of the internship) and a mentor (who organizes group meetings on theoretica internship topics). Student and supervisor meet regularly to discuss the project. The mentor provides organized group meetings (including assignments), in which other research internship students participate as well.

Assessment method

The research internship concludes with a brief report on the work performed. Instructions for this report will be provided by the mentor in the group meetings. The mentor will provide feedback and evaluates (grades) the reports.


During this course Blackboard is used.
