Tirocinio curriculare

The curricular internship

The curricular internship consists of a period of training - of a maximum duration of 12 months, for each course of study cycle - carried out in a company, entity or institution, which allows you to complete and supplement your university course:

  • has an educational purpose, in that it allows you to deepen, verify and extend the learning received during your course of study
  • has an orientation purpose, in that it allows you to enter the world of work, to know internally the business reality and organizational/work dynamics and to assume greater awareness in professional choices
  • does not take the form of an employment relationship
  • must be included in the curriculum

How to activate a curricular internship

If you are interested in one or more internships send an email to with the following information:

  • first and last name
  • title of the internship you are interested in and portal on which you have identified it (if you are interested in more than one internship you must clearly indicate your order of preference)

The internship commission will give you an acknowledgement that the email has been received.

You will receive an email confirming your assignment and you will be put in touch with the company, public body or association for an informational interview.

After the interview you should inform the committee whether or not you intend to confirm your interest in the internship.

On receipt of the confirmation of interest from you and the company, the committee will assign you an internal university lecturer. The internal supervisor is responsible for the final exam in the same way as any other final exam.

At this point you can apply to an existing proposal on the Internships and Theses platform, as explained in the student handbook, and then fill out together with the proposing company (also on the same platform) the training project form, a document that defines its objectives and how it will be carried out.


To activate the internship there must be an active agreement between UniGe and the host institution (public or private company):

  1. Read the list of UniGe agreements
  2. Log in with your UniGePass credentials to the online platform and fill out:
    1. The Internship Proposal
    2. The Training and Orientation Project.

How to activate a curricular traineeship

Before you can do the traineeship, you must obtain the certificate for the Online Course on Occupational Safety and Health. The course:

  • takes place entirely in e-learning mode
  • is divided into 4 modules
  • has a total duration of 4 hours

To complete the course, you must have viewed all the video lectures, passed the relevant self-assessment tests and the final examination. At the end of the course, you will receive a digital certificate and be able to download the certificate in pdf format.

  2. Get in touch with the contact person within the company (company tutor) and with the university tutor (professor of your course of study)
  3. Invite the company to register on the portal Student Curricular Activities: Internships and Theses  (if not already registered). It then initiates the necessary paperwork for the internship.
    N.B. User Manuals are available on the Portal homepage. For assistance in using the Platform, please write to

Your company tutor will be responsible for introducing you to the work environment and helping you acclimatise, as well as assessing your progress and the achievement of your training objectives at the end of the placement.
