Internship for Final Examination

All the information about S.Co.Re. curricular Internship for the Preparation of the Final Examination

The curricular Internship for the Preparation of the Final Examination must be completed within the study programme. It is necessary in order to prepare the final experimental thesis and it will be mentioned during the final defence.

Applications for the Internship for the Preparation of the Final Examination can be submitted by students enrolled into the 2nd year of the SCORE Master degree programme and applicants should have completed at least 50 CFU of the SCORE programme.

In order to start the internship, students should apply following the steps and procedure outlined in the online Internships and Agreement application, after having agreed the details of the internship with the Supervisor of the thesis project (who will be the University of Bologna Tutor) and having informed the Degree programme Director in order to obtain a proper pre-approval of the project.

The internship cannot start until the whole procedure has been properly fulfilled.


The internship can be internal or external internship:

1.   All internal internships are conducted at University of Bologna laboratories. 

2.   All external internships are conducted at host institutions and companies, public and private, trade associations, etc. in Italy or in a foreign Country and they are governed by the specific framework-agreements with the University of Bologna. In order to fulfil the terms of these framework-agreements, students have to check in the Internships and Agreements application if host-organizations outside the University of Bologna are present.

If the host organization is present, this means that an agreement between the host organization and the University of Bologna has already been done.  Students can thus proceed with their application following the online procedure.

If the host organization is not present, a new agreement between organizations has to be done and students have to contact as soon as possible the Internships Office of Ravenna Campus in order to start the agreement procedure. This procedure can take up to 1 month and it is necessary in order to be ensured during the internship. Students can start with their internship only if the specific framework-agreement between institutions is already established and and only after applying for the approval of the traininig project through the online application for internships.

In any case, students can start their internships only after having completed the procedure and printed out the Attendance Record Book.
Trainees must record day-by-day work in the Attendance Book that will prove, if required by an inspection, that they are doing an internship and are not irregularly employed.

The duration of the internship is calculated according to the number of credits related to the teaching activity, as laid down in the course structure diagram.
For internships corresponding to 18 CFU = min. 450 hours / max. 540 hours.

Once the internship is concluded, students have to upload the Attendance Book to ask for the approval of the conclusion of the activity to the Board through the online application and register the cfu corresponding to the internship activity by booking the relevant exam session.
In order to have the internship approved by the Board, it is necessary that both the trainee and the host institution fill out the mandatory questionnaire regarding the internship experience in the Internships and Agreements application.

In case the internship is performed abroad during an Erasmus/Overseas mobility period or as a consequence of being assigned a scholarship for Thesis Abroad by ​Fondazione Flaminia or other kind of mobility authorized by the Degree Programme, the procedure to be followed might be different.
Students in this situation are required to check the proper procedure with the Programme Coordinator, after having agreed the details of the internship  with the Supervisor of the thesis project (who will be the University of Bologna Tutor) and having informed the Degree programme Director in order to obtain a proper pre-approval of the project.
In order to have the internship abroad properly recongnized, it is mandatory for the trainee to submit to the Degree Programme Director an evaluation report provided by the tutor in the host institution. 


During the internship students must:

  • follow instructions from the academic tutor and the company contact person, and report to them in case of need;
  • attend work regularly, sticking to the timetable  agreed;
  • give the host-organization warning of absence and  make up the hours lost;
  • if the absence becomes prolonged or the internship comes to a halt, inform the internship office, the academic tutor and the host-organization contact person;
  • comply with the host’s rules and the hygiene and safety regulations;
  • maintain discretion about the manufacturing  processes, products and services and other host-organization business he/she gets to know about, and remain discreet after the internship ends.
