The University of Trento collaborates with high-schools to define and implement work experience schemes to guide students to the world of work by giving them the opportunity to work at the University’s departments and centres and in its administrative offices.

The placements help students improve their skills and are useful so that they can choose their future career or studies.

How to participate in work experience schemes

The University draws up every year a list of placements available at its departments, centres and administrative offices for students from the 3rd, 4th and 5th year of high school wishing to participate in work experience schemes, and designs educational projects bearing in mind the students’ background and university orientation. The list of available places is sent to high schools.

High schools wishing to establish work experience schemes with the University should email alternanza [at] to discuss an agreement.

Schools are expected to submit applications from highly motivated students who are genuinely interested in the project.
