Curricular Internships are part of a student’s degree course and designed to earn credits or help in writing their thesis. This type of internship creates the opportunity for students to alternate study and work as well as first-hand experience in market place. Each Degree Course has its own regulations for evaluating and assigning credits. Students should contact their professor/tutor and Degree Course director for information and recognition of credits.
One credit corresponds to 25 hours of internship.
Extra-curricular internships are reserved to students who already completed their courses, both first or second level degrees. When graduated, students have 12 months to apply for these internships in companies, public bodies, cooperatives and NGOs through Unito dedicated platform.
These interships last at maximum 6 months and are paid following regional dispositions.
"Legislation promoting employment" in the 24 June 1997 Law No.196 and the later regulation (ministerial decree 25 March 1998, n.142) were added to our rules and regulations in order to “create the opportunity for students to alternate study and work as part of their training as well as first-hand experience in the workplace.”
Extra-curricular interships in Piedmont are currently regulated by the Resolution of the Regional Council (D.G.R. 85-6277 dated 22.12.2017) which states that the university can offer internships for new graduates up to 12 months after graduation and for a maximum total of six months (including extensions).

- brief report on the circumstances of the
Undergraduates who need to go to companies or organisations to collect data and/or documentation in order to prepare their thesis, can formalise both the host’s and their own position with a procedure which is independent from the internship and without a training project.
Insurance cover for civil liability against accident is however guaranteed although health insurance while abroad would be the student’s responsibility.
The student must request and fill in a form that has to be signed by the supporting professor of the thesis and signed by the host company. This form should then be sent to the School’s Job Placement Office.
