Internships abroad

Ca’ Foscari promotes and organizes internships all over the world. Over the years the University has consolidated important relationships with embassies and diplomatic corps as well as with cultural centres, NGOs, Chambers of Commerce and with a large number of companies, in order to offer you the opportunity to participate in an internship in line with your aspirations.

Internships abroad can be set up for students (during their studies, minimum duration corresponding to the number of relevant credits in the study plan, maximum duration of 12 months) and for recent first- and second-level graduates and PhD graduates (within 12 months of their graduation, minimum duration 2 months and maximum duration 6 months, including extensions, at the same host partner).
During the traineeship, it is not possible to take exams and/or to attend didactic/learning/tutoring activities, even if they are online.
