The University of Parma promotes job placements in order to facilitate professional choices through direct knowledge of the world of work and study-work alternation experiences.
The curricular internship integrates and completes the student's curriculum through the performance of practical activities which, on the basis of the provisions of their respective degree course regulations, may be carried out in structures within the University or externally at qualified public and private bodies with which the University has entered into appropriate agreements.
The internship involves three parties: the student, the promoter (the University of Parma) and the host (company or organisation) where the activity is carried out under the guidance of a university tutor, a University professor/instructor and a company supervisor.
Curricular internships are not a prerequisite for an employment relationship between the intern and the host structure, nor can they be a substitute for company labour or professional services.


Internships are subdivided into 'Curricular Traineeships', i.e. training periods carried out by students in companies or University Departments as part of their programme of study, and 'Extracurricular Internships', i.e. training periods reserved for graduates within twelve months of obtaining their academic qualification.
