Traineeships for students (curricular internship)

Curricular internships are mandatory for Bachelor's degree programmes and for some Master's programmes.
The internship must be carried out during academic studies and its fulfilment implies the attainment of ECTS.

The period of the internship is spent at companies or public institutions which have subscribed an agreement with the University. Please note that in order to start a traineeship, both the agreement and a training programme are required.

In order to start the internship, you need to have obtained:
- at least 80 ECTS if you are a Bachelor's student / 100 ECTS if you are an Animal Care student
- at least 20 ETCS if you are a Master's degree student and the internship is required by the regulations of your programme.
