Internship found on your own
To be able to talk about an internship, a written
agreement governing the relations between the parties involved is required.
Starting/activating an internship means drafting and signing this agreement.
The standard documents needed to start an internship are the "Progetto Formativo Individuale" or the “Convenzione Singola di Tirocinio” (for internships abroad, “Internship Agreement”). They are prepared by the University before the start of the internship and make it possible to provide guarantees (including insurance coverage) to all interested parties.
The procedure for activating the internship is carried
out entirely online via the JobGate portal.
If you have found the internship either independently or through a channel other than JobGate, the host employer may not be registered on JobGate. In this case, it will have to be accredited on the portal: have the company registered at the following link.
On the other hand, if it is already registered it can proceed directly with entering the information concerning your internship on JobGate.

For internships outside of Italy, it is possible that the host employer will offer you a contract. After evaluation by the Internships Office, the internship may be registered on the JobGate portal using that contract.
