Registration of Internship

To whom it may concern. The lists of the different forms of "internship", periodically posted in the "AlmaEsami" website, are automatically posted by the system: in fact, from the administrative viewpoint the internship is treated as an exam. However, in order to register the internship, it is not necessary that the student enters his/her name into a list.

Once the student has completed the internship, he/she must go through the following steps:

  1. After completing the total number of hours of the internship, the student inserts into the "SOL-Tirocini" site the record of attendance, bearing the attendance dates and signatures. Then, the student fills up the mandatory questionnaire.
  2. The Company supervisor of the student (assuming that the internship is carried out in a Company), informs the University supervisor of the student that the internship is completed. If the Internship is carried out within the University, this step is skipped.
  3. The University supervisor examines the student's report, approves it, and informs the administration ("Ufficio tirocini") that the technical part of the internship is concluded.
  4. The administration carries out a final check of the administrative issues, then sends the Commission (currently chaired by M. R.) a message, to which the student's report is annexed, along with the indication that the internship can be registered.
  5. The University supervisor sends the Commission a message with a short list of the internship topics, to be inserted into the registration minutes.
  6. The Commission proceeds with the registration of the internship. For this operation the presence of the student is not necessary; also, it is not necessary that for registering the internship the student enters his/her name in any list of exams.

It is important to pay attention to the registration date. In fact, since the internship is considered as an exam, it is subjected to the rule that states that all exams must be registered no later than about a month prior to the date of the final (graduation) exam; otherwise, the time is not sufficient for the  administration to carry out the analysis of the students' careers.
Therefore, it is important that a student who is involved in an internship, and wishes to graduate soon after completing it, asks the University supervisor to interact with the Commission, so that the latter receives the information in due time.
