We encourage the students to go abroad and provide administrative support to those who are interested.
The person in charge of international relations helps the interested students to find a host laboratory, establishes the placement agreement and helps each student with the formalities to obtain a visa and a fellowship.
Each year, about 40 to 50% of our students choose to go abroad, to destinations all over the world:
You as well can host a student for a placement of three to six months, from undergraduate to post-doctorate level.
What we expect from you as a supervisor:
- host the student, give them the working space and the equipment necessary to carry out their project
- supervise them during the placement: regularly review with them the advancement of their work, help them to analyse the results, guide them in deciding on further steps
- help them in writing the placement report: help to establish a coherent outline if necessary, at least comment on the draft version of the report suggesting improvements
- evaluate their technical competence and professional attitude using the assessment grid provided by the School
