An internship is a training period undertaken by students in order to gain relevant experience and skills in a particular field, often their field of study. During an internship period, students acquire knowledge of the working world and explore possible directions for their future career, while also learning about professions, technologies, work organization.

Students can choose from two options:

  • internal internships, at the University
  • external Internships, at companies or other organizations

Students must have achieved a minimum number of credits before starting an internship:

  • 90 CFU for Bachelor's degrees
  • 30 CFU for Master's degrees

Internal internships

Internal internships are carried out within the department or at an organization that collaborates with the department, to allow interns to integrate knowledge acquired during their studies and help them with their career choices.

How to apply for an internship:

  • ​Make sure you have achieved the minimum number of credits required
  • Choose and get in touch with a teacher who agrees to supervise your internship
  • Choose a subject and draw up an internship plan with your supervisor
  • Fill in the ”Internal Internship Preliminary Form” (available in the download box), that states that you have started an internship period, and submit it to the Student Support Office

Internship conclusion:

  • At the end of their internship, students must submit a final report that will be approved by their supervisor, who will also issue a document certifying the internship program they have completed (“Dichiarazione fine tirocinio” available in the download box). If the internship program is a part of the students' work for their dissertation they do not have to submit a final report.
  • Students must submit the “Dichiarazione fine tirocinio” and their final report to the Ufficio Gestione Studenti within the deadline in place for their graduation session.
