Internship for final examination

How to do an "Internship for final examination"

The internships for final examination are learning activities that allow students to obtain part of the credits associated with their Final examination, while also acquiring practical skills and making initial contact with the world of work.

Internships are carried out on the basis of an agreement between the University of Bologna and the Host Structure (company, public body, professional firm etc.) and an internship programme signed by the parties concerned.

Who is eligible

Students are eligible for internships, which must be carried out as part of their degree programme.


Unless otherwise established by national or European regulations, internships normally have a duration of 25 hours for every University educational credit assigned to them in the course structure diagram for the degree programme. Internships must be completed within 12 months of their start date.

If the internship is an optional activity, once you have included it in your study plan, you can carry it out starting from the year in which it is contemplated.

How to choose the Company

Internships may be carried out in University structures or externally, either in Italy or abroad.
To choose where to carry out the internship, you can consult the list of structures that hold agreements with the University and/or internship offers already published on Tirocini online.
If none of the offers meet your interest, you can present a spontaneous application and, if approved, ask the Structure to publish an offer addressed to you (known as “ad personam” offer), via the University's internship application.  If the Host Structure does not already have an agreement with the University, an agreement may be stipulated and, once it has been stipulated, the internship can start.

Any requests of agreement from commercial activities (shops) will not be considered (Degree Programme Board Council resolution of 30/01/2020).

How to activate an internship

Students can request an internship solely via the Tirocini online application.
Once you have identified the structure in which you wish to carry out the internship, you need to agree with your University Tutor and with the Host Contact Person, your learning objectives and activities, the time lines to achieve them and all the other details required to complete the internship programme. These objectives must be shared with the Supervisor, who will also be the University tutor (to be indicated at the moment of the request).
Once all internship details have been defined, you will be able to submit your internship application online by ticking on “Tirocinio per tesi”.


Approval of the internship

Applications will be submitted to the competent Internship Committee, which must authorise their activation. Students must download their attendance register before commencing their Internship.
The Internship can be carried out in the period in between the start and end dates shown on the attendance register.

During the internship

During the internship, you must keep in contact with your University Tutor, to whom you can refer to for any support or advice you may need on how to carry out your activities, and you must record your daily activities in the attendance register.

The Internship hours must be recorded during the period between the start and end dates shown on the attendance register.

Before leaving the Host Structure, make sure that the attendance register is countersigned by the Host Contact Person.

Withdrawal, interruption, suspension of the internship

If you intend to withdraw from or interrupt your internship for reasons that do not allow further continuation, you must notify the office below, stating your reasons to the Internship office:

What to do at the end of the internship

 After having concluded the internship, for the approval and verbalisation on behalf of the Intership Committee it will be necessary to:

  • Insert the effective end date of the internship in the database;
  • Upload the attendance register completed with stamp and signatures;
  • Complete the evaluation questionnaire;
  • The hosting institution also needs to complete an evaluation questionnaire before approval and verbalisation.

The attendance register and the evaluation questionnaire must be uploaded and completed at least 5 days before the verbalisation dates here below.

The verbalisation will be done directly by the Internship Office without the presence of the students.

The next Internship Committee's verbalisation dates for concluded internships are:

Insurance cover

The University of Bologna guarantees insurance cover for students against accidents at work and third-party liability claims. These policies are written by insurance companies that specialise in the sector.
In the event of travel to locations or structures not indicated in the approved curricula internship programme, you can request an extension of the insurance cover - even during the internship - on condition that the travel concerned is consistent with the objectives of the internship.

Online courses on health and safety are compulsory for all students
