The International Programme (IP) is a combination of several inhous days in the Netherlands and a foreign trip. In the fall of each year, the location for the International Programme is announced. After the announcement it is possible to apply for one of the 16 available spots. After a selection procedure the committee will announce which 16 people have been selected to be a participant of the IP. The students will be selected on basis of study performance, curriculum vitae and motivation.
In advance of the trip the participants will go to various inhousedays in the Netherlands to get a broader view of the job perspective of an econometrician. Various institutions will be visited in all fields of econometrics. Next to the inhouse days, one or two activities will be organized in order for the participants to get to know each other. Then in may the actual journey will take place to the destination yet to be announced! To get an idea of what the international programme entails, you can watch last year's aftermovie:
