The selection process and the acceptance

The examining board of the School of Economics and Management will evaluate the applications and will produce a ranking based on the criteria stated on the call:
- GRADES (max 35 points)
- KNOWLEDGE OF LANGUAGES (max 15 points)

The internships will be allocated in order of ranking (from the highest total score to the lowest) until all places have been assigned. If the first chosen location is not available, the second preference will be assigned, and so on.
Alternative destinations will be offered to students whose 3 chosen companies are not available, where possibile.
Once the students have accepted the placement offered (through Turul platform), the International Relations Office will send to each company the CV and the motivational letter of the winners. The companies are free to get in touch with the students in order to know them better, organise an interview or verify the compliance with their requirements.
Then companies send to the International Relations Office a formal acceptance letter for the students who passed the selection; such letter will also indicate the period of the internship.

The Training Project

The Training Project is a document of the School of Economics and Management to be filled in by students who want to have their traineeship period recognised. It is possible to recognize a minimum of 3 ECTS and a maximum of 12 ECTS, depending on the organization and the duration of the traineeship itself. The form can be downloaded here.

In order to obtain the recognition of the credits, before the departure, the student must choose a Tutor in the home university. Together they fill in the first table in the Training Agreement, with reference to the duration and the number of ECTS to be recognized. This document needs the signatures of the student, the Tutor and the President of the Degree programme.
Upon return from the traineeship program, if the student did what was established, the agreed credits will be recognized. Full information about the internship can be found in the Transcript of Work provided by the company.
The student must bring the Training Project (original) + the Transcript of Work (original) + the Training Agreement totally filled in plus the certificate of attendance (copy) to the International Relations office in charge of the recognition.
The recognition is discussed and approved by the Committee of the student’s degree programme.
After the approval, the traineeship is registered in the student's career.
This process generally takes up to 2 months: therefore students must be aware that it is not possible to graduate in the February session if the mobility ends in January, or in the July session if the mobility ends in June.
