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. 384/2021 of 15.03.2021, art. 8 internships).
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.
The two compulsory internships in the 2nd and 3rd academic year have to last a minimum amount of hours and will give you ECTS credits.
In addition, a 100 hours internship of orientation is mandatory at the first year for our students in Social Work.
Optional internships will not give you any ECTS credits.
All internship projects must be placed in Career Hub by 18 December 2020 (compulsory internships 2021 for the Bachlors in Social Work and in Social Education).
