Determinations of the DEMS Department in order to support students, who are about to graduate, in carrying out an activity in lieu of the internship, due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency
Nov 3, 2020

The internship can be only carried out remotely, in "smart-working".
Therefore, all students who are already carrying out or should have started their curricular internship "in presence" are invited to send this information to their company tutor (via email or other electronic tools) and request the modification of their internship from "in presence" to "smart-working" mode.
More specifically, students need to ask to the company tutors to fill out and sign the certificate "Attestazione avvio e/o svolgimento tirocinio in modalità smart-working" and attach it to the Almalaurea platform. Students whose host companies will accept this modification, must specify in their attendance register - in each line that describes the date and activity carried out - that the activity has been implemented in "smart-working" mode.
Students whose host companies do not accept this change, have to close or suspend their traineeship and will be informed soon about the initiatives that the Department will take in order to protect their right to study.

The following is established by decree of the Director:
- The "external" internships, which have already been carried out for 90% of the total hours established in the initial training project, will be considered already completed and students will be able to ask for their validation directly, using the format in Annex 1: "Request for validation of external internship carried out at 90%"
- The "external" internships already started and not yet completed can be considered completed if the student - having followed the alternative activities to the internship which have been assigned CFU by the Degree Council in line with the limits imposed by the current regulations of the Department and Degree Course - has reached 90% of the total number of CFU indicated in its Study Plan for the internship by adding the CFU achieved with the internship and those achieved with the above mentioned alternative activities;
- The "external" internships already started can be converted into "internal" internships and completed remotely - in smart working mode - at the request of the trainees - using the format in Annex 2: “Self-certification Internship”.
- Students who envisage the possibility of not being able to graduate in the July and October 2020 sessions due to the impossibility of carrying out their internships, may request to follow the "Decision Making" course as a replacement activity, following the operational procedures described in Annex 3 - Operational rules for participation in the "Decision Making" Course. This Course will end with an aptitude test which can be taken by the students using the format in Annex 3.1: “Request to perform the aptitude test of the "Decision Making" course” only if they have already passed all the subjects included in their study plan or if they still have to take only one last exam, with the obvious exception of the internship.
