    All steps must be completed by the closing date for applications, June 6, 2023.

The day after the closing date for applications, the International Office will forward your application to the provider you have selected based on the destination you have chosen. In the following week, our office will also draw up the ranking for applicants and award study grants on the basis of academic merit. 
After your application has been sent, the provider will invite you to an introductive call which will give you the opportunity to explain what you have written in your cover letter. We suggest you call as soon as possible so that the provider can start searching for a placement swiftly. We recommend that you always check your iCatt mailbox so that you do not miss important emails from the provider.

The programme includes activation of a security package, which includes a Safety App and insurance cover provided by AXA. This includes health cover and third party liability (for damage to third parties or third party property), both in the workplace and for activities outside work (i.e. during your free time). The Cattolica insurance covers you for the entire period abroad, with high maximum cover.

You can check with the faculty internship tutors as to whether your internship can be recognised as a curricular internship.

The contact information for the internship tutors can be found online in your faculty website.  

When you have obtained an OK from the tutor, you must contact us for your internship to be activated on the Internship & Placement portal (

This document gives instructions on how to continue the activation procedure. You should, however, contact our office before proceeding.

More information about the procedure will be provided to you during the registration process.

Once paid, the deposit fee is non-refundable. The providers reserve the right to review individually each request regarding refund of the final balance. The following exceptions are made:

  1. If the programme is cancelled by the provider
  2. If the provider cannot find an internship in your field of interest.

Finally, no refunds are permitted if you cancel your application after you have received confirmation of the placement from the company or after you have started your internship.
