Info session for students: Wednesday April 9, 2014 at 12.30 in Room 9A
Students who are currently attending the Spring 2014 semester of the VIU Globalization Program are invited to apply for an internship placement in Italy and a mobility scholarship.
Applicants must be already registered and attending the semester at VIU. The internships are for two to four months long, and will take place following the semester of courses at VIU, either during the winter break or during the summer months. The start and end dates are fixed in collaboration with the host organization, according to the selected students’ justified preferences (i.e. university-related commitments).
The call for applications is now available on the VIU website in the Internships and Mobility Page
The internships allow selected students to gain practical experience and familiarity with working life and organizational dynamics of significant research centers, companies and institutions. The internship opportunities in Italy will be in research centers, companies and organizations whose activities are connected to Globalization, Sustainable Development and/or Cultural Heritage. Most of the opportunities will be in the Veneto area although some may be in other regions in Italy.
