We recommend frequent consultation of the page Coronavirus: updates for the university community - Measures for UniTO students, Professors and staff - section "Studying in UniTo a.y. 2021-2022" - paragraph "Traineership" for information related to curricular internships.
Students enrolled in the Bachelor’s Degree course in Business & Management need to do a compulsory curricular internship. For students enrolled in 2019/20 a.y. or earlier the internship should correspond to 225 hours (9 ECTS), while for the students enrolled in 2020/21 a.y. or later the curricular internship should correspond to 375 hours (15 ECTS).
Students are encouraged to read the following documents:
- Internship - Infographic
Please note that students can do just one curricular internship during their Bachelor’s Degree.
The internship organized by the Job Placement office is planned for the 3rd term of the 3rd year. In case students find an internship opportunity, they may also do it at the end of their second year of study, upon authorisation obtained from the Business and Management coordination office (firstname.lastname@example.org). The authorisation helps to avoid overlapping with the lectures
More information about internships is available at the students section below.
Students wishing to do their internship abroad can participate to specific call for applications (such as the Erasmus+ Traineeship call for applications, CRUI Foundation calls etc.).

The curricular internship allows students to put into practice their knowledge, as well as get a better understanding of the topics covered during the Degree course. It also facilitates their access to the job market.
Thus, the internship experience must be relevant to the Programme of their Degree course, as it is listed in the students’ career plans and it entails the recognition of ECTS/CFU (Crediti Formativi Universitari).
The internship can be activated:
- During the 3rd term of the 3rd year. Starting from 3rd year of studying, the job placement office will support students in finding a host company in Italy.
- The internship can exceptionally be activated during the summer of the second year, but in this case students would have to independently find the company and ask the authorisation, which helps to avoid overlapping with the lectures.
The yearly presentation of internships abroad follows the publication of the Erasmus+ Traineeship call for applications.
Applying students can obtain scholarships to cover some expenses of their internship abroad.
It is suggested to carry out the internship after having finished all the courses and exams. This experience is placed at the end of the programme and it’s included on the career plan because it is an integral part of the students’ learning experience, which completes the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course, providing useful insights for writing the thesis.
