Transferring grades and credits for an internship abroad

It may sometimes be possible to transfer credits you receive for an internship project to your regular study program here at Tilburg University. Some Schools have a general policy that guides whether internships credits can be transferred. If your school does not have a general policy, you will need to look closely at the content of your (research) internship project together with your education coordinator.

The education coordinator will then decide whether the internship project is a good addition to your study program and will define how many credits may count towards the total number of ECTS on your diploma or whether these ECTS will be added on top of your program. Whether the credits can be transferred to your study program or count towards your thesis grade will depend on the responsibilities you are given, the level you work at, your work load, and the number of working hours indicated in your internship contract.
