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
A 6 ECTS internship must:
- be selected in your study plan during the second year (replacing one of the two elective courses);
- be no less than 400 hours and no less than 3 months (6 ECTS);
- 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).
