What it is
The traineeship, or stage, is a period of orientation and training, carried out in a work context, public or private, to facilitate your entry into the world of work.
The Degree Course provides a training period of 4-6 months aboard the ship. Alternatively, the internship can be carried out in companies in the sector maritime/naval.
Please remember that the regular payment of taxes is a necessary requirement for the carrying out of the internship.
UniGe, as the promoter, provides insurance against accidents at work with INAIL and, for civil liability, with insurance companies operating in the sector.
Check the traineeship opportunities on the UniGe Student Curriculum Activities website.
