Thanks also to our Artists Development Centre and the resident companies within the Creative Hub Bologna, students and graduates are suitably guided in the transition from study to the world of work through a regular dialogue with the staff responsible for the outgoing orientation. Also through internships and experiences in companies in the sector.
