  Academic recognition

If you have worked with associations, cooperatives, hospitals, sanitary centers or have done voluntary service (Servizio civile nazionale), you can ask for academic recognition instead of the ordinary internship. This is a particular type of request that has to be submitted to a special Commission made of Professors who will evaluate each case and consider the suitability with your university career.

The commission will consider working or voluntary experiences attended at the same place in the past 2 years for at least 5 or 6 months.

You can write a report about the work you've already done, specifying the activities and their common points with your study field. This report has to be countersigned also by your representative at the hosting organization, to confirm your statement. Then, this report will be attached to the formal request, that you can find at the bottom of this section.
With the report and the request, you need to attach your university transcript of records and the University credits that you have already obtained until that moment (minimum of: 80 for Bachelor Degree, 42 for Master Degree) or a confirmation that you’re enrolled in the second year of the Master degree (only for Master Degree students), according to the university’s internship regulations. Then, you will have to take these three documents to our office who will forward them to the Commission. In less than a month, professors will communicate to our office the results and then we will inform you about your request.

Academic recognition is a one-time request, during your entire academic career. If you obtain the recognition during your Bachelor degree, you won’t have the possibility to ask for it also during the Master degree course.
