Educational institutions

Over the years we've worked with 150+ students from various educational institutions ranging from vocational to university level both from the Netherlands and abroad. Because of this we understand the process from first project proposal to graduation. From internship to graduation project.

Join your fellow students!

Meet some of the students who've been part of this exciting adventure!

Initial contact

Every internship is different and each educational institution requires a different approach. That’s why we start with an assesment of your background to see if there could be a match. It starts with sending us some info (like your CV, starting periode, etc).



After the initial assessment of the info you sent we start with the actual application stage where we plan interviews. In these interviews we discuss your application and give you additional info about ZEF and some specific assignments. If the meetings are positive we can go to the final stage.



If it’s a match it’s time to arrange all the formalities. In this stage we make sure that you have a project description which is approved by your educational institution and we make sure that everything is ready so that you have a great start at ZEF!
