Internship at HAS green academy

Internships are a mandatory part of the curriculum at HAS green academy. Apart from doing a internship in the Netherlands, all Dutch students are obliged to complete a internship abroad. International students usually choose to do their internship in a Dutch company, but are also allowed to choose a company abroad.

The period of an internship abroad is different per study programme, but varies between 6 and 20 weeks. You can download the various brochures for the study of your choice.
Company assignment

4th-year HAS green academy students carry out a final project in the business world within the framework of completing their studies under professional supervision of HAS green academy.

In the case of final projects HAS green academy follows a clear philosophy: students have to show that they are worth their diploma within a result-oriented environment. Project approach, objectives and results are laid down in a contract between HAS green academy and the customer. Thanks to this formula businesses profit from a multidisciplinary expertise, broad know-how and enthusiastic young professionals.

Differences between an internship and a company assignment


Students actively look for a place to do the internship themselves. They have a home-base at the internship company, here they experience all aspects of the company and at the same time carry out an assignment. Supervision of the student takes place by the internship company. HAS green academy bears no responsibility for the result produced.

Company assignment

The customer pays for the project result and the expertise and time needed for this of 1 or more advisors. Educational supervision remains a responsibility of HAS green academy and is financed from the education budget (20 hours per student). The project team (students and  HAS experts) works as an external consultant for the customer. The work place depends on the type of activities and can therefore be at the company, at green academy or at a different location.

Multidisciplinary teams

The company assignment is carried out by a team of mostly 2 students, where each student contributes his or her expertise, interest and experience. More and more often we have multidisciplinary teams: in that case students from various study programmes, for instance, food technology & food design, environmental technology & business administration, animal husbandry and meat technology are part of the team.
