Between the first and the second year of study, students participate in a curricular internship programme with one of our international partner organisations, which include UNCTAD, the International Centre for Migration Policy Development, the European Parliament, Oxfam, the World Bank, the European Court of Auditors, and many more. A full list of our partners who have built ad-hoc internship projects for our students can be found here.
Students who wish to pursue other internships opportunities outside the STG’s institutional partners must seek these out independently. The Curricular internship are an integral part of the study programme. Worth 10 ECTS , the internship must be at least 300 hours long (approximately between 6 - 12 weeks). Internships take place during the Spring - Summer break, i.e. between the second and third term of the first year of study.
The curricular internship is an opportunity for students to gain more hands-on experience in an international environment, while expanding their professional network. Students take part in their “curricular internship” before receiving their degree and is therefore an on-the-ground training experience, not a work contract, and as such is generally not paid. It is at the sole discretion of the hosting organisation to provide a stipend to the students. Students must therefore plan for this activity in their budget, while also considering all the logistics involved (i.e. accommodation, transports, insurance, VISA when needed) in pursuing an internship abroad.
For Italy, compensation (monetary contribution) and any benefits are at the discretion of the employer, as they are not prescribed by law.
In case of internships abroad, compensation (monetary contribution) and any benefits depend on respective national laws.
The governing rules of curricular internships are established by current national, European, and regional laws and regulations, and by the University.
