What kind of internships do Italian students do?

Internships for Italian students can be compulsory or voluntary in their study programmes. Curricular internships are those that appear in their curricula with the corresponding allocation of credits. Postgraduate or extracurricular internships are those that students complete voluntarily for at most, exactly 12 months after graduation. In general, the Italian trainee is already a qualified professional.

What are internship agreements Italian students?

Internship agreements are training agreements signed between the educational institution, the company and the student. For most Universities, it takes about 4 weeks to complete the internship agreement. The relationship established between the company, the training centre and the student is strictly academic and in no case professional. At IES Consulting, we work with internship agreements and NOT with internship contracts.

At what time of the year can you post your internship offers?

There is no specific period during which the Italian students must do their internship. In general, students are available all year round, especially since many of them are “neo-laureati” and have no problems with dates. However, we recommend that you publish your offers well in advance of the date you wish to receive the student in order to avoid possible delays due to lengthy bureaucratic procedures (almost always at least one month) with schools or universities.

Duration - How long lasts an internship agreement?

Italian legislation on the regulation of traineeships provides a maximum of 6 months. Generally, the duration of the internship is determined by the school according to the training: candidates who are still in study tend to do short-term internships, while graduates seek maximum work experience and seek an internship with the possibility of hiring. The average duration is 4 months.

In Italy, education is compulsory for ages 6 to 16 and is divided into three levels: primary, secondary and higher. During these years, primary and secondary education followed one another. Upon entering Secondary School, students can choose from three types of schools, each specializing in one type of education:

– Liceo : Offers theoretical training in a field of specialization, which may be art, human sciences or science. It aims to create a basis for access to higher education and consists of five courses, for students ranging from 14 to 19 years.

– Technical Institute: Combines practical and theoretical training in economics or technical subjects. It lasts five years, the first two are common to the chosen branch and during the remaining three years, a specialty is studied in depth. They must then complete a three- or six-month internship within the last year. It provides access to university and higher education.

– Professional Institute: offers very practical and specialized training for three years, focused on the job market.

Depending on the training model chosen by the students, they may be Laurea triennale, Laurea magistrale or Master students. Italian native students who come to Europe and all over the world for an internship usually study in Laurea Triennale, Laurea Magistrale or Master

Laurea Triennale

This is a generic three-year course. Students must take 180 ECTS. The young students of the Laurea triennale are looking for placements in a particular field but do not yet have any specialisation, have no professional experience or have little experience and tend to stay for short periods.

Laurea Magistrale

It is a specialization in certain disciplines. There are 120 ECTS which are taught in a two-year single cycle programme, after the triennial Laurea, and a baccalaureate. Students have access to internship agreements during their studies or at postgraduate level.

Master's Degree

It is only after completing a Laurea Triennale that it is possible to obtain a first Master’s degree lasting one year. After completing a Laurea Magistrale, it is possible to obtain a Master’s degree of 2 years. Some first level Master students come to do internships in companies in Europe
