The Master 1 traineeship (2nd academic semester, 30 ECTS) takes place between the end of January and the end of June (5 months). Examination takes place at the end of June.
Internships must be found within the list of internships that are officially agreed by the Board of Education every year. It includes proposals in Bordeaux, France and abroad. There is no opportunity for internships in the industry at the Master 1 level.
Potential supervisors in Bordeaux, France or abroad who wish to propose a traineeship for NeuroBIM should contact the program coordinators to get informed about the agreement procedure.
Master 1 students can choose their traineeship up to the end of September, but the sooner the better.
Students can extend their lab training after the exam, provided their fill up a specific agreement with the University and the host laboratory.
Laboratories in the University of Bordeaux must provide a monthly stipend to students who spend working more than 2 months in the same lab (see Student lab agreement and student stipends).
There is no mandatory stipend for students who go abroad for their traineeship, but they can apply to a variety of mobility fellowships (see Fellowships for International Mobility).
Since students who wish to apply for a PhD in Neuroscience to the Doctoral School of the University of Bordeaux at the end of the 2nd year are often stressed by the idea of the competition, they prefer to stay in Bordeaux during their 2nd year traineeship. We strongly advise these students to go abroad for their Master 1 traineeship.
