Access Jobiri

The Almalaurea Interuniversity Consortium, founded in 1994 by a group of researchers from the University of Bologna, was created to facilitate the entry of graduates into the labour market, thus easing getting in touch with companies. 

The University of Cagliari is among the 80 universities adhering to the consortium; twice a year the Almalaurea carries out two reports on the Profile and Employment Status of graduates at 1, 3 and 5 years from graduation, thus offering a complete outline valid up to the individual course of study.

The data are collected by graduates themselves and are returned to the participating universities, the Ministry (MIUR), the National Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research System (ANVUR), as form of monitoring on the university and post-university system, in order to optimise the design, monitoring and evaluation of decisions taken by universities.

Almalaurea offers orientation tools, services, information and opportunities for peer-to-peer dialogue as well, in order to enhance the educational path and facilitate integration into the labour market.

Moreover, on the Almalaurea portal the graduates’ CVs are collected and consulted online: this facilitates the meeting between demand and supply of qualified work.

Features and activation modalities

Tutorial training and orientation traineeships



Through the University of Cagliari, you can activate two types of internships:
- training and guidance internships, aimed at those who have obtained a degree within 12 months of graduation;
- work and reintegration internships for job seekers and unemployed people, including those in mobility.
The common objective of the two types is to encourage the acquisition of professional skills and encourage integration or reintegration into the labour market.

Training and orientation internships

Role of the University of Cagliari: promoter.
Hosting entity: public or private establishments having their registered or operational headquarters in Sardinia.
Requirements of recipients:  recipients must have obtained the qualification for no more than 12 months. No traineeships are available for professionals qualified or qualified to exercise regulated professions for typical activities such as those reserved for professionals.
Duration: 2 to 12 months. The extension is acceptable, but always within the limit of 12 months.
Costs: the monthly internship allowance, worth at least 400 euros gross, is paid by the host. The insurance costs are borne by the University of Cagliari.
How to activate: the hosting entity must register in advance - free of charge – on the Almalaurea-University of Cagliari portal.

Deadlines to meet: the training project of the internship must be approved by the hosting entity and the university tutor within five working days before the start date of the internship. Otherwise, the Job Placement Desk will automatically postpone the start of the internship by five days.

Once you have signed up, the portal must create the documents for the activation of the internship:

Only after the agreement has been signed by the University of Cagliari and activated within the portal, it will be possible to proceed to the compilation of the training project.

Once completed, said hosting entity sends the training project - through a special link via Almalaurea - to the lecturer-researcher chosen as university tutor. The tutor will approve (or, possibly, reject) the project. At this point, the training project is approved by the staff of the Job Placement Desk. The file can now be downloaded by the host, signed by all interested parties and sent to the Desk, which will upload it to the portal and activate the internship.

The higher education and research apprenticeship is an employment contract that is activated in agreement with the university, aimed at students enrolled at the university or post graduate.

In addition to work, the apprentice carries out research on topics of interest to the employer. This type of apprenticeship can also be used to write the thesis in the business field.

The apprenticeship in agreement with the university allows young graduates to carry out the period of practice in order to access to the professions organised in orders.

The apprentice is an employee, and his pay is governed by the employer’s collective agreement.

How long does the apprenticeship last

The minimum duration is six months.

The maximum duration varies according to the type of apprenticeship:

- higher education apprenticeship is completed when the apprentice obtains the degree;
- research apprenticeship ends when research is completed (maximum period: 36 months);
- the maximum duration of the apprenticeship for admission to the professions organised in orders is linked to the completion of the certificate of completion of the admission to the State examination.

How to start an apprenticeship

- the employer and the University sign a protocol;
- the university tutor draws up the individual training Plan, with the employer’s involvement;
- the employer hires the apprentice.

During the apprenticeship course, the training tutor and the company tutor collaborate in compiling the individual dossier of the apprentice.

After the apprenticeship

At the end of the apprenticeship period, the employer and the apprentice may freely withdraw from the employment relationship.
In the absence of withdrawal, the relationship continues indefinitely.
