Shell Stages/ Afstudeerstages/ Assessed Internships

If you are in the master phase of your studies then a Shell Assessed Internship is an excellent way to understand the impact you can make in the Energy industry and to decide what career is right for you.

Lasting typically 12 weeks but sometimes even 12 months, your time in an assessed internship will see you having a full day-to-day involvement in actual projects selected to match your interests and abilities. You will join a project team and work alongside Shell employees who are all professionals in their fields.
