Training and work experience

• Thesis in high schools

Students can ask to do research work in high schools if they are working on a Master's Degree thesis in the educational field. The request form is available here (in Italian).

• External training and work experience at schools or companies

The Bachelor’s and Master’s Courses Regulations allow students to include in their Programmes of Study an external training or work experience at a public or private company, obtaining 3 CFU/ECTS (exam code 724ZW) or 6 CFU/ECTS (exam code 725ZW) depending on the duration. The institutions and companies involved vary from year to year and contacts are managed directly by some of our lecturers and by our Secretary's Office, who can provide further details to those students who may be interested.

For each period of training or work experience the following should be provided:

  • a lecturer from the Course of Study who is responsible for the student’s placement;
  • a tutor at the host institution/company who will provide a final written report on the activities carried out by the student.


The following documents are required to do a training or work experience:

  • a training project that describes the student's activity, the time periods and how the experience is carried out;
  • an agreement between the host company and the University or the Mathematics Department, which in particular includes insurance cover for the student; either the Secretary's Office (for curricular experiences, i.e. carried out while studying for the Bachelor's/Master's Degree) or the University Central Administration Office (for post-curricular experiences) will take care of this according to simple and efficient procedures already established.
