Doing an internship
An internship is an intrinsic part of the academic path of every student. In many under- and postgraduate degrees the curricular internship is compulsory and earns credits. A graduate internship, called, in this case, non-curricular - is a period of training and orientation to the professional world. The non-curricular internship is different from specific traineeship periods giving a professional qualification, which are a compulsory step in order to be able to practise specific jobs. The University of Florence has implemented St@ge, an online database to facilitate access to internships: students and graduates can search for businesses that have agreements in place to host interns and can apply directly from the platform.
