Placements and benefits

A limited number of individually customized internships that may be available in the following disciplinary areas (other fields may also be possible upon request):

  • Business
  • Marketing
  • Fashion and Sales
  • Communication
  • Journalism
  • Public Relations
  • Event Management

Students must be aware that over 90% of Italian businesses are small or medium – size enterprises, so placements in large multinational companies are limited. If students are offered a placement, it may be the only option available. It is therefore important that candidates understand the need to be flexible. However, UCSC will take great care in finding the best match.

These are unpaid positions, but some companies may provide other types of benefits (not guaranteed).

Basic knowledge of Italian language is required: students must enroll in the pre-session and semester Italian Language courses offered by Università Cattolica.
