Once the company has confirmed selection of the student, it shall enter detailed content related to the proposed internship on the Almalaurea platform of the University of Pavia. The university tutor will receive email notification of the internship so as to be able to evaluate and approve it. Upon completion of this phase, the student will receive an email informing him/her that the internship has been approved.
