VIU promotes international mobility by providing internship opportunities and scholarships to students of the member universities who attend the Globalization Program. Following the semester of courses at VIU, selected students are offered internships at research centers, universities, cultural organizations and companies in Italy and abroad.
Each semester VIU publishes two calls for applications for:
Worldwide Mobility for Thesis Research
Open to students in any of the member universities in the second year of their master’s degree (laurea magistrale), who intend to pursue research for their master’s thesis in themes related to the Globalization Program, and to advanced undergraduate students who are studying for a 4-year bachelor's degree, who intend undertaking a final research thesis/project for credit.
Students selected for the research internships and worldwide mobility will be awarded a scholarship that will partially cover travel and living costs.
Internships in Italy
The call is addressed to bachelor's and master's students from any of the member universities, including exchange students at Ca’ Foscari, Iuav, Padova, Tor Vergata and Milano-Bicocca who are attending the semester at VIU (at least three courses) and who wish to do an internship in a host organization in Italy following the semester.
Students selected for the internship in Italy are awarded a scholarship that will contribute to lodging and living costs.
