Curricular internships

The study plan includes a 100-hour curricular internship to be carried out during the first or the second year with companies, translation and event management agencies, etc., in Italy or abroad

The Department has decided that external internships may be completed IN-PERSON TOO, unless otherwise provided for by the applicable laws at the moment of the actual beginning of the activity and as long as the Body and the Company guarantee the intern safety and hygiene standards in accordance with current regulations.

In addition to the submission of the three signatures (of the hosting body, the student, and the academic tutor), to activate an in-person internship the hosting company/body is required to submit a written statement confirming the full compliance with the required safety measures. Besides, in case of interruption of the activities due to a new worsening of the pandemic, the hosting company/body must guarantee that the internship will be completed in remote mode.

In case the intern realizes that the compliance with the health regulations is not fully guaranteed within the hosting company/body, the relevant tutor and the Ufficio Tirocini e Placement of the Campus must be promptly informed. The remote mode remains a valid option and should be preferred in cases where it does allow the training experience to be effective.

Curricular internships 

The study plan includes a 100-hour curricular internship, to be carried out during the first or the second year of your degree, with companies, translation and event management agencies, NGOs and other organizations, in Italy or abroad. The University of Bologna provides insurance cover during the internship, while costs for transport, board and lodgings, etc. are borne by the student.

Curricular internships are overseen by the Internship Committee and managed through the curricular internship website, where students apply.

 

How to choose the Company

Internships may be carried out within or outside of University structures, 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 submit your own proposal and, if approved, ask the company/institution to publish an offer addressed to you (known as “ad personam” offer), via the University's internship application. If the company/institution does not already have an agreement with the University, an agreement may be stipulated. From this point the internship can start.

How to activate an internship

Students can request an internship solely via the Tirocini online application. 
Once you have identified the company/institution in which you wish to carry out the internship, you need to agree on your learning objectives and activities, the time lines to achieve them and all other details required to complete the internship programme with your University Tutor and with the Host Contact Person.
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 authorize 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 company/institution, make sure that the attendance register is countersigned by the Host Contact Person.

Students who carry out their curricular internship during an exam session take the exam and make up lost hours with the company later.

 

Withdrawal, interruption, suspension

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 Internships and Placement office.


What to do at the end of the internship

At the end of the internship, you must fill in the questionnaire and upload it to the curricular internship website along with the attendance register, which was previously filled in, stamped and signed by the company’s tutor. The company fills in the questionnaire on the curricular internship website. Your University Tutor verifies and marks the attendance register. The internship is recorded and the procedures closed.


Request for recognition of work carried out during the internship
Degree programme teaching regulations permitting, you may request the recognition of work activity (or comparable activity) that you carried out during the internship

  • after including the internship in the study plan;
  • after completing the activity in question (in Italy or abroad);
  • regardless of whether or not an internship agreement already exists between the Host company/institution and the University of Bologna.

To obtain recognition, students must complete and present a specific form (downloadable from the Downloads section). After checking the admissibility of the request and the completeness of the documentation, the Internship Committee will express a favourable or adverse opinion.

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 specialize in the sector.
In the event of travel to locations or companies not indicated in the approved curricula internship programme, you can request an extension of the insurance cover - including 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
