Organising the Practical training

To gain the Diploma, students at Accademia are required to complete an internship in a professional office, with a minimum total duration of two consecutive semesters, between the fourth and fifth semesters of the BSc course, in order to acquire the essential skills in the use of design tools. At the end of the period of work experience each student has to present the results to an assessment board to judge their validity.
The internship is also compulsory for students in the Master’s course coming from other universities, unless one has already been completed.
The student may carry out the internship in architecture studios, craft workshops, research centres, etc., provided that the destination is agreed with the person in charge of the professional practice.

Information about the period of internship is summed up in the Presentation that you can on this page.
You will also find instructions for applying for the Placement Scholarship under the SEMP (Swiss European Mobility Program). Please see the documents below.
