INTESTAZIONE WNC-LM

Internships for Thesis

 The experimental work for a second cycle degree (Laurea Magistrale) thesis can be done in a University department, in a public or private company, structure or laboratory, both in Italy or abroad. There are two types of internship for thesis:

  • Type A thesis
  • Type B thesis with apprenticeship.

In both cases: upon choosing the thesis subject with the supervisor, the student must use the specific forms to comunicate to Mrs Cristina Mela- Didactic Unit the name of the supervisor, the thesis subject, the location where the work will take place and the apprenticeship starting date, if the activity involves one. The student is also requested to fill in the questionnaire on thesis internship.

Questionnaire on thesis internship
The student should download and fill in the questionnaire on thesis internship (download form). Additionally the student should send the following forms to the professors designed as supervisor :

  1. Internal Supervisor (download form) and/or
  2. Supervisor not belonging to the Study Courses in Biology- external supervisor(download form).

The student should provide the Didactic Office with the Internship Questionnaire, the Internal Supervisor form and the possible external supervisor form at the end of the internship period or in any case at least 15 days before the final examination.

Please be advised that thesis internship, independently of the chosen modality, must be approved by the Council of the aggregated Study Courses or by the President of the Study Course, prior to its beginning. After about 20 days from the submission of their application, students may check whether their internship has been approved.

Type B thesis internship (with apprenticeship) - Forms

If an apprenticeship is involved, the student will organize with an internal tutor both the apprenticeship and the remaining part of thesis internship, which are strictly connected. The internal tutor will therefore be responsible for all the activities and will figure as the thesis supervisor.
Apprenticeships are regulated by official agreements with the structures or companies where the apprenticeship will take place.
Please verify the Operating agreements or contact Mrs Magliocchi Gabriella (050/2211516 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
Students who wish to activate an apprenticeship must fill out the following forms:

  1. Form Activation of Internal Apprenticeship or Activation of External Apprenticeship;
  2. Educational project Form for internal apprenticeship or for external apprenticeship, with signatures;
  3. Educational project Form for abroad apprenticeship .

Both documents must be delivered to Mrs. Cristina Mela (050/2211517 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and will be evaluated by the Council of the Study Course. The Didactic Office will communicate the outcome of the evaluation to the student and will give him / her the Attendance Register that the student will have to fill in and give back at the end of the apprenticeship. The tutor will transmit the evaluations of the apprenticeship to the Didactic Office (Evaluation Form).

The students applying for a Type B thesis internship do not have to submit a form for the beginning of thesis internship.  Such form is substituted by the request of an internal or external apprenticeship.
