Traineeship and substitute activities

In the field of the aforementioned “Other formative activities”, the study plan assigns 6 ECTS to educational training and orientation.

The ECTS relative to educational training and orientation can be acquired totalling the credits in different types of activities, up until students reach the necessary quota of 6 ECTS. The range of activities through which students may choose are listed below.

Recognition in credits of the internship/placement activities and of the substituted activities are based on the request from the student, according to the principle that 25 hours (comprehensive of one individual work quota) corresponds to 1 ECTS. The representation of the number of credits for the substitute activities for the internship is established and verified by the Didactic College (and is thus indicated and pre-emptively announced to the students in reference to each one of the listed activities)


Internships with an agreement
During the study programme, students can carry out a period of professional training at a public or private firm agreed upon with Ca’ Foscari. The internship activity will be recognized in ECTS (as “educational training and orientation”) for a maximum of 6 ETCS, that students can also obtain by totalling the ECTS obtained at the internship with the ECTS achieved with other placement activities, such as seminars.
Remember that to fill the criteria, 25 hours of the internship corresponds to 1 CFU. 

The University Internships Service helps with the activation of the internship and the relevant forms and documents.

Activated Internships
The complete list of activated internships at Ca’ Foscari can be found in the Personal Area, where you can also find the list of internships in Italy for the Humanities field.

Internships to be activated
Students who want to propose activating an agreement with another firm where they can carry out their internship, they can consult the procedure for the Activate an internship web page, where they will also find the documents to send to the firm.
The Didactic College will not take activities into consideration that have already been carried out without previous agreement with the representative scholar.
