Types of Internships

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. 1362/2020 from 13.11.2020, art. 4 Internships).

Students and graduates at unibz can choose between different types of internships:

  • Curricular internships with ECTS credits: they require a minimum amount of internship hours
  • Curricular internships with no ECTS credits
  • Extracurricular internships with no ECTS credits (post laurea)

Pay attention: 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.

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.
