The Internship Program that you could learn a lot while working in professional fields in Italy.

The Internship in these fields, business and design in Italy, which are recognized worldwide, gives you a big chance to acquire knowledge and technic. You could select the Internship program adjusted to each your request, for example, for those who want to open their own stores importing clothes, sundries, foods and various Italian products in their future, or for those who have already worked in the fashion field in their own countries and want to experience of working in Italy, or those who want to work in the travel or the farm staying field as the Italian do, or those who want to work in a hotel or a "bar" in Italy. And if you have an experience, you could intern as a language teacher.

Concentrateing the training of the language study and preparing for internship

After all the key which it grows by internship, and many things can play is linguistic ability. You study Italian intensively for four months at the beginning of the course so that the linguistic ability improves it for training contents as much as possible before beginning a work experience. During this period, you surely acquire an intermediate level of Italian which is needed for internship. You also learn the technical term all over the language study in the Internship Program and prepare for internship.

The experience of working in specialized fields

A full-time coordinator coordinates where you would intern by the end of the language lessons. The place for the internship diverges into many branches; a trading company of furnitures, foods and clothes, journalism, sightseeing business, the design studios such as fashion, interior and display, the studios of picture, jewelry, bag, the language teachers, a cooking lecturer. It is a required experience especially for the person who will aim at finding employment in these fields in the future.

If you change your internship, you will be charged € 400 for each change registration fee. It is also good to have an internship in one place and gain experience. We also recommend changing your internship every four months to experience the benefits of different workplaces (restaurants). Please decide according to your wishes. For the second and subsequent internships, you will need to find and decide on your own internship destination.
