Clamda-IM curricular internship (as part of your study plan)

Clamda-IM students can decide to include a curricular internship in their study plan.

The curricular internships allow you to have a working experience during your Program and have ECTS in your career.

In case you base your dissertation on an intership experience, you need to contact the Internship Office of the School. Your Internship for the preparation of the final thesis can be inserted in your study plan. These credits can be registered dividing the credits related to the final thesis in two parts. There are 1​5 credits for the final thesis. In case you prepare the final thesis durign your internship, 12 CFU will be assigned to ​the intership (up to 300 hours), while 3 CFU to final dissertation. ​In case you take an intership for the preparation of your final dissertation, you need to inform the hosting company that they need to fill out the internship programme in the online system accordingly, with details on your project and name of your supervisor. 

When can you have your curricular internship?

CLAMDA-IM students can do their curricular internship starting from the summer of their first year (after the 4th term classes).

Students doing their internship

According to the CLAMDA-IM rules, since attendance to classes is compulsory, students are suggested to arrange their internship during the summer or winter break. Should this not be possible, one and only one attendance waiver request can be undertaken to the CLAMDA board during the whole duration of the Program, provided it lasts not more than one single term.


Where can you have your internship?

The internship can be done in a university structure or in companies, public or private bodies, trade and professional associations, etc. which already have an internship-agreement with the University of Bologna.

If none of the offers meet your interest, you can inquire for possible internship openings with a company of your interest. If the company agrees and offers you an internship, and if such company is already registered as a Unibo partner company,  ask the Internship Office to publish an offer addressed to you (known as “ad personam” offer), via the University Database. If there is no previous partnership agreement between the company and Unibo, it should be signed before the internship starts. Please contact the Internship Office about this.

Very important: the internship cannot be carried out in a company where the director, executive, manager, businesspartner/associate or legal representative has family ties to the student applicant (more info at the Internship Office).

How long can it last?

​curricular internship is of 200 working hours for 8 ECTS. 

The internship must be in any case completed within 6 months from its starting date, and the working hours per week should be no more than 40. A 20% of working hours beyond 200 is allowed, if duly justified.

How to activate an internship

Students can request an internship accessing 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 (Prof. Vincenza Odorici) 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. Once all internship details have been defined, you will be able to submit your internship application online.

Approval of the internship

Applications will be submitted to the competent Internship Committee, which must authorise their activation. Once approved, you receive an email with the instructions about the procedure, which includes:
- printing the work plan;
- signing it;
- obtaining the signature of the supervisor from the hosting company;
- uploading it on online together with a copy of the ID of the supervisor from the hosting company.
You have time until the first day of your internship to complete the above procedure. This  will allow you to print the “attendance sheet” from the online system.
Getting the attendance sheet is essential to get the internship started. 

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

if, for any reason, you wish to interrupt or extend your internship, or if you have concluded/accomplished your tasks and hours earlier than planned, you must inform the Internship Office. In particular, any extension needs to be formally authorized by the Internship Office and anyway cannot exceed by 20% the internship length, as initially agreed.

What to do at the end of the internship

At the end of the internship, you have to upload on the online system the attendance sheet, which has to be filled in and signed. Then, you will be directed to the online final evaluation form. Once the attendance sheet and the online final evaluation form is completed, the Internship office will validate the activity and the professor in charge, Prof. Vincenza Odorici, will register your ​internship on your online career.  It is not necessary to book a "registration session" on AlmaEsami anymore. 

NB: If you received the paper documents (attendance sheet and final evaluation form), please fill it in and hand it back or send it via email to the Internship office and sign up online in Almaesami. ​

Request for recognition of work carried out during the internship

You may request the recognition of a work activity (or an activity comparable to it) that you carried out indipendently. More info at this page.

Insurance cover

The University of Bologna guarantees insurance cover for interns against accidents at work and third-party liability claims. These policies are written by insurance companies specialising in the sector. In the event of tansfers to work destinations not indicated in the internship programme, you cmay request an extension of the insurance cover - even during the internship itself. - as long as such transfers are relevant to the internship goals.

Online courses on health and safety are compulsory for all students.



Clamda-IM provides some scholarships to cover the expenses for those students doing an internship abroad, according to the projects presented by students and their relevance for the preparation of the final dissertation. The Programme Board defines terms and conditions each year.
Students can also profit from scholarships provided by the School of Economics or other opportunities, as yearly notified (see the call for the Erasmus+ Mobility for Traineeship).
