General Information

COVID-19 Internships

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. 1031/2020 from 31/08/2020,  art. 4 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:

  • Curricular internships with ECTS credit points, which require a minimum amount of internship hours
  • Curricular internships with no ECTS credit points
  • Extra-curricular internships with no ECTS credit points (post laurea)

Pay attention: extra-curricular 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.

Duration

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. Extra-curricular internships can be carried out within 12 months after graduation for a minimum duration of 2 months and a maximum one of 6.

Academic Tutor and Company Tutor

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.
