Training and guidance internships

Training and guidance internships enable students to put what they have learnt in the classroom into practice in real life: an internship is a learning activity which takes place within a company or a public or private organisation intended to "provide alternation of study and work within learning processes and facilitate career choices through direct knowledge of the world of work".

From the university and legal point of view, a training and guidance internship does not constitute employment but is an integral part of the educational process, assessed and monitored by the academic authorities, to deliver real added value to the student's CV and in some cases to provide ECTS-credits.

Institutional agreements with UniSR

Companies or organisations interested in hosting UniSR students and graduates within their organisations may contact the Internships Office by email, sending a short job description which specifies the location, times, duties, responsibilities and any expense refund offered. It should be remembered that interns on extra-curricular training and guidance internships (Post-Graduate Internships) are entitled to an expense refund set by Law for each of the host organisation's Regional specialisms.

The Office will publicise the internship offer to Students and Graduates as appropriate to their educational programmes and in agreement with the Internship Officer of each degree course involved. Once a candidate has been selected, the relative formalities will be finalised; for UniSR this is a streamlined process involving simply the acceptance and signing of its own standard forms, approved by the Lombardy Region Authority in June 2018.

Any organisation which has previously signed an internship agreement with UniSR but is no longer on the list because documents have expired can simply apply to the Office for renewal of the agreement, and will receive details of the relevant procedure within a short time.

For any further information, please contact the Internships Office on the telephone numbers provided.
