External thesis procedure

LAST UPDATED 07/11/2023

N.B.: For theses written within the University of Turin, there is no need to produce documentation.

We recommend that you read the Covid-19 Information Form at the link: https://en.unito.it/node/66176


The University guarantees insurance cover (for third party liability and against accidents) for students who intend to travel to public facilities or private organisations or companies, both in Italy and abroad, to write their thesis/final dissertation. The activity does not therefore require the conclusion of an agreement and the commencement of an internship.


For the authorization of an external thesis, the student must send an email to the Job Placement office at jp.scienzedellanatura@unito.it attaching the External Thesis Form available in the Documents section, completed in its entirety (not by hand) and signed by the thesis supervisor, the company tutor and the student. The thesis supervisor and the company tutor must be included copied in as recipients of the email.


Once the Job Placement office has received the form by e-mail, it will confirm receipt to all those involved (student, thesis advisor, company tutor).


The student can go to the host company and start the activity only after receiving the confirmation email from the Job Placement office and only for the agreed period.



Please contact the Job Placement office for insurance cover for field activities or external activities with an accompanying teacher.
