Worldwide Mobility for Thesis Research: 

If you already have a topic for your thesis, you could consider traveling abroad to carry out research at an affiliated university. VIU provides scholarship support for this type of mobility. During the first phase of the project, the student attends courses at VIU while receiving guidance and tutoring to refine the thesis project. During the second phase, the student spends 2-4 months at a VIU member university to carry out research.
We currently have a call open. 

Application deadline: February 24.

Internships in Italy Program: 

It is never too early to start thinking about what you will do after your studies. Work experience is a great way to explore the world of work, and try out different sectors while testing your soft skills and applying your educational knowledge. VIU has built a network of host institutions that accept VIU students for curricular internships. We select students on merit and aptitude and then work to identify a suitable, tailor-made opportunity. 

Application: March 10 - April 9.
