What is a Project Placement?
In their third semester, almost all of our human security students take their newly acquired knowledge and skills to the field in the form of a project placement. The project placement has to be minimum 3 months, and it must be conducted in collaboration with an institution, organisation, business, or a university research programme. The student’s tasks must include significant elements of data collection, analysis, and reporting. The student should be allowed to use the data for his/her Master’s thesis. You can read about the formal requirements here.
Our students have completed work placements all over the world and with many different types of institutions, organisations, businesses, and research programmes. These include the following and several others: NIRAS, Oranjezicht City Farm, World Health Organisation, GOVSEA Research Project, GIZ, Danish Foreign Affairs, Danish Representation at NATO, 14km, Save the Tigris Campaign, Planned Parenthood, DIGNITY and the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance.
