General Information

The Politecnico di Torino enhances students’ mobility by stipulating agreements with European and extra-European Partner Universities. The managed programmes include The Erasmus+ Programme (in cooperation with European Partners) and Bilateral Agreements/General Agreement, Double Degree (in cooperation with both European and extra-European Institutions).

The aim of these agreements is to enable students and/or professors either to attend courses at the Politecnico di Torino which will be considered part of their curriculum in their own country, or to develop their final project, or, in some cases, to attain a Double Degree/Joint Degree.

If you are interested in studying at the Politecnico in the frame of a mobility programme, you must verify if there is an agreement between your home university and the Politecnico di Torino in a specific field and level (undergraduate/graduate/PhD)

According to the existing Agreement, you will have the opportunity of:

  •  attending courses for one or two semesters (attaining minimum 20/30 ECTS credits per semester)
  •  preparing your final project (about six month staying - maximum 30 ECTS credits)
  •  attending courses in the first semester and developing your final project in the second semester (from 10 to 12 months staying)
  • doing a traineeship period in the framework of Erasmus+ Traineeship
  • obtaining a degree at the Politecnico di Torino in the framework of the Double/Joint degree programme

Please note: Unfortunately, the Politecnico di Torino does not accept "free mover"exchange students. Extra candidates whose field of study has not been stipulated in the Erasmus+, the Bilateral Agreement or the General Agreement, can enroll in single course units by paying tuition fees.
