Offer a refugee an internship (in the Netherlands)

Tilburg University offers a special pre-bachelor programme for higher educated refugees, which prepares them for a bachelor or master's degree at a university or university of applied sciences. Part of this program is a two-month internship for one day a week. The aim of the internship is to give them a good idea of both their future studies and a Dutch company or organization. They would like to learn the Dutch language even better and expand their network.
We are looking for internships for 8 working days on which the pre-bachelor student will come to your company or workplace.
We are looking for internships in Data Science, Information Management, Medicine, (Civil) Engineering, High-Tech Engineering ('automotive' and 'aerospace'), ICT and Integral Safety Science.
Would you like to offer an internship? Please contact Kathelijn van Heeswijk, Project Leader pre-bachelor by sending an email to
