Types of internship
Internship is an on the-field training experience, not
a work contract, whose governing rules, applicable in Italy, are established by
current national and regional laws and regulations, and by the University.
By “curricular internship” is meant an internship pursued by students before receiving their degree.
A curricular internship that satisfies certain requirements may be registered in the student’s curriculum of studies (curricular internship for credits). This may be done for a single internship per study course*.
*Starting in the 2019-2020
a.y., a second
internship experience worth 6 credits can be completed only for Bachelor of
Science and Law programs, which will be recorded as an additional internship in the study plan. For more information,
please see the Guides to the University.
Additional internships, or internships that do not satisfy the requirements for recognition, are referred to as curricular internships without credits (if pursued before award of degree).
Finally, an internship pursued after graduation is known as an extracurricular internship.
