Activating an internship abroad

How to activate an international internship

To activate curricular and extra-curricular traineeships with enterprises and organisations outside Italy (having their administrative and operational headquarters abroad) follow the procedure below at least 30 days prior to the start date of the activities.

  1. Download the internship agreement;

  2. Fill the form in (electronically) giving the details of the intern and the host organisation and provide signatures;

  3. Interns who are students need to name their tutor professor and ask them to write the tutor’s letter (not required for traineeships in Italy);

  4. The intern must send to the internship  agreement document in PDF format, together with a copy of their identity document and the tutor’s letter (if a student) at least 20 days before commencing activities;

  5. COSP checks the documentation and ensures it is signed by the legal representative;

  6. Once the document is signed, COSP sends a copy to the intern.

University of Milan Erasmus students, and interns who require clarification due to specific individual requests received from the foreign enterprises/organisations should contact the Internships Office during telephone calling hours well in advance of the internship starting.
