When is the best time to start searching for an internship?

If you want to do an internship you really like, don’t start your search too late! About 4-6 months before the start of your internship is recommended. If you want to go abroad, you also have to keep in mind that you might need a visa, housing etc. Take your time to arrange all these things as well.

What is the best time to do my bachelor internship and how long should it be?

The most appropriate moment to do your internship is during the first trimester of the third year. As a rule the bachelor internship is a full-time activity and should take at least 10 weeks (the equivalent of 420 working hours) and is thus best planned parallel to the minors, which all start in the first week of September and which all end ten weeks later.

You are also allowed to choose another moment for your internship.  For more information about this, please consult page 14 of the Bachelor Internship Manual (‘How to fit your internship in your schedule’).  Please note: BA students must take the 5 ECTS Interim Project, which begins directly after the Minor exams.
