The internship should allow the student to gain practical experience of working professionally with research questions in the field of molecular health science. The student must prepare an internship project with a Molecular Health Science research question relevant to the internship and the tasks the student has had.
|Detailed description of content||
The student is responsible for finding an internship, and for the completion of the task agreed with the place of internship and the university. The student will be assigned a supervisor and the internship agreement must be approved by the Study Board in advance. The internship runs parallel with the master thesis in the 3rd semester and it is encouraged that the two projects benefit from each other.
|Course material and Reading list||
There is no fixed syllabus. Relevant literature for the project is decided by the students in collaboration with the supervisor(s), but within the overall subject of the education. It is expected that the students conduct independent literature searches.
|Overall plan and expected work effort||
Internship / 405 hours
|Evaluation and feedback||
All projects’ processes will include ongoing dialogue-based (oral) evaluation between the students and the supervisor. Both students and supervisors are expected to provide constructive feedback and viewpoints during the process. Feedback concerning the academic content and progression, process and collaboration. Every other year when the projects are handed in, there will also be an evaluation through a questionnaire in SurveyXact. The Study Board will handle all evaluations along with any comments from the head of study. Furthermore, students can, in accordance with RUCs ‘feel free to state your views’ strategy through their representatives at the study board, send evaluations, comments or insights from their project process to the study board during or after the project process.
The programme is negotiated with the place of internship and supervisor and stated in the internship agreement. Note that the internship can run parallel or subsequent to the master thesis (45 ECTS) in the 3rd semester.
|Overall learning outcomes||
After completing the internship, the students will be able to:

|Examination and assessment criteria||
The project is evaluated on the basis of the students ability to discuss and analyze the selected subject areas and understand and reflect on one’s own intern project and how it fits into an academic context, use and master scientific theories and methods while working with a specific, academic and relevant task, analyze, categorize, discuss, argue, reflect and evaluate complex data on a scientific basis, critically view and select scientific sources, literature, theory and methods, write in accordance with academic text norms and for an academic target group, use experimental methods in a research process, and critically reflect on the practice of a specific workplace based on the theories and methods employed in Molecular Health Science.
The assessment of the oral exam is based on the student’s ability to meet the criteria mentioned above and their ability to
Furthermore, whether the performance meets all formal requirements in regard to both for the written og oral exam
