International Graduates Placement

In order to support the development of vocational training, the University of Catania is committed to implementing in-house job training promoted by worldwide partners. The training can be carried out across the University structures, service centers and within any other related structure belonging to University’s general administrative office

Activation and duration

Newly graduates from foreign universities, within 12 months after graduation, are advised to address to the International Mobility Office (IMO) of the University of Catania for the activation of a traineeship. An Internship agreement has to be signed in advance in order to activate the internship.
The IMO shall be responsible for checking the availability of the hosting structure and for all the administrative process of the internship agreements. The initiative is designed to be used across the facilities and the departments of the University of Catania. The longest length is up to six months and this includes any further extension.
