Internships will be started in teleworking, in mixed form (teleworking and on-site) and on site. The internship may be carried out on site, provided that:
a) local, national and foreign legal regulations allow it and
b) strict safety precautions are observed (Rector’s Decree of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano n. 404/2021, 18.03.2021, art. 8 internships).
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.
Given the persistence of the health emergency from Covid-19 and the alert from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, it is recommended to avoid travel abroad unless for strictly necessary reasons. We recommend to all those planning an internship abroad to check if this can be activated in smart working mode. If this is not possible, any quarantine periods and security measures in force in the country of stay and - upon return to Italy - of possible interruptions / cancellations of means of transport must be taken into account. In any case, the condition for any trip is the signing of a specific release document. The relevant form will be provided to you by the Career Service.
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.
(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).
After approval of the internship project by the academic tutor and the Career Service, the internship project can be downloaded from the Career Hub and then signed by you and the company tutor.
To activate the internship, a copy (scan) of the signed internship project must be uploaded to the Career Hub (together with a copy of the ID card of both signatories, student and company tutor). In addition to the mentioned documentation, please also provide (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org) one of these following forms: internship in smart working modality or internship on site_in loco. All mentioned documentation has to be provided at least one week before the internship starts.
The original version of the internship project must be kept by the student.
