Training internships


An internship allows a student to have a period of work experience in public or private institutions, in order to develop specific personal and professional skills.

Through these activities, the student acquires a direct knowledge of a field of work to which a degree can give access, as well as useful information to facilitate an informed choice in relation to his/her professional future.

The 150-hour internship enables students to obtain recognition of 6 university credits (CFU/ECTS).

These ECTS/CFU do not affect the average grade and are considered as activities of a student's choice.



Students who have attained at least 90 CFU/ECTS and are enrolled at least in the second year of the course can make an internship.


Before activating the online procedure, please get in touch with the traineeship contact person, Professor Alessandra Ambanelli (, for a preliminary interview.
