Internships represent a period of on-the-job training giving students and recent graduates the opportunity to acquire professional competences and skills transferable to the world of work. The relationship between intern and organization shall not be considered an employer-employee relationship.
By law, the maximum duration of an internship is 12 months for students, and 6 months for recent graduates. Recent graduates may begin their internship within 12 months of graduating.
The Internships Abroad Unit deals with the organization and management of international internships for all students enrolled in bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degree programmes as well as for alumni who have graduated in the past 12 months, including traineeships funded by the European Erasmus+ programme.
The Service is also responsible for the promotion of internships, search for partner companies and all the administrative aspects linked to the setting up and management of internships abroad. It also organizes recruiting events and seminars to enhance the employability of its beneficiaries.
