Students and graduates of the Bachelor in Communication and Culture, the Master in Innovation and Research for Social Work and Social Education, the Master in Musicology and of the Master in Applied Linguistics can choose between different types of internships:
N.B. Extracurricular internships outside of the Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano are subject to special regulations. Please contact the Career Service for advice.
With few exceptions, internships for graduates outside of Italy are activated within the Erasmus+ Traineeship programme. Please inform yourself early enough about the respective deadlines.
As required by your study programme, you can undertake an internship that can last up to a maximum of 12 months. The minimum length is two weeks. Extracurricular internships can be carried out within 12 months after graduation for a minimum duration of 2 months and a maximum one of 6.
During your internship you will be supervised by a company tutor appointed by the hosting institution and by an academic tutor from your faculty. Any lecturer, researcher or PhD student at unibz can be your academic tutor.
During your internship in Italy and abroad, our insurance covers you against work-related accidents and third-party liability. For internships carried out abroad, the insurance coverage is valid all over the world.
Every year the Career Service is conducting a survey about the internship experiences of unibz students. Have a look at the results of 2020.
Step by Step to the Internship
(N.B. The internship project must be created by the company in the Career Hub at least two weeks before the start date of the internship).
If you have already taken and completed the general work safety course, we ask you to fill out this self-declaration, sign it and upload it to the Career Hub (in document management).
If you attended the mentioned course via unibz, then we already have your data in the system and you do not need to upload a self-declaration.
If you have not completed the general work safety course either externally or through unibz, then you must complete the same BEFORE the internship begins. Instructions can be found online.
Smartworking: Internships take place on site / in the company. At the explicit request of the host company, a mixed-mode internship is possible. Internships that take place entirely in smart working will not be approved.
For mixed-mode internships, a specific declaration must be completed and uploaded to the Career Hub before the internship is activated.
After the academic tutor and the Career Service have approved the internship project, you will receive further information via an automatic email from the Career Hub.
Status of internships in the Career Hub:
To be approved: The internship project is awaiting approval by the academic tutor and the Career Service.
Approved not active: The internship project was approved but still needs to be activated. Activation is obtained by providing a signed copy of the internship project and copies of I.D. of company tutor and intern uploaded to the Career Hub.
Active: All necessary procedures have been completed correctly and all documents are present. The internship can start on the scheduled date.
If, during the internship, an extension or early termination is required, this can be requested by the company directly in the Career Hub.
On completion of your internship the following steps must be performed:
