The internship aims at developing the student’s skills thanks to real work experience. 

Taking an internship is not a compulsory activity within MEDI course synopsis. However, it is possible to substitute an elective course of the II year (worth 6 credits) with an internship (worth 6 credits), or even to insert the internship in the study plan as an extranumerary activity, e.e. on top of the standard study plan, thus gaining extra credits. 

PLEASE NOTE: there is the possibility to have both elective courses of the II year (6 + 6 credits) replaced by a longer internship (12 credits) ONLY FOR Double Degree Students (incoming and outgoing) who have an internship of 12 credits in their Learning Agreement, as per the agreements between the 2 universities.

Description and requirements

Ideally a 6 ECTS internship should:

  • be selected in your study plan during the second year (replacing one of the two elective courses);
  • be worth at least 400 hours of work and lasting at least 3 months
  • be started and completed in the II semester of the II year;
  • be in line with MEDI contents (the tasks of the internship must be in line with what you are studying at MEDI).

PLEASE NOTE: as from 1st May 2024, in line with the standard internship & registration of UNIPV internships, 150 hours of work will appear in your transcript (elective activity) as associated to the 6 credits internship registration; the remaining number of working hours will  appear as extranumerary in the transcript
