A bilateral agreement is an agreement signed by two universities which choose to become partners to achieve common specific aims related to: student mobility, joint research activities, organization of seminars or conferences, etc.
The University of Trento has signed agreements with universities from all over the world. Some of these agreements are activated between the institutions as a whole, while some of them involve only some departments in each institution (see download box for a list of University/Department agreements).
Depending on the agreement, beneficiaries are bachelor/master/PhD students, professors, research scholars, administrative staff. Student coming to Trento in the frame of bilateral agreements have access to UniTrento services and facilities and are exempted from any tuition fee.
Most bilateral agreements allow students from the partner universities to spend a period at the University of Trento for study/research purposes, and also academic/administrative staff from partner universities to come to Trento for teaching/training purposes.
Students mobility at UniTrento is possible for a period ranging normally from 3 to 12 months. Participation in the mobility generally entails a students’ selection carried out by the students’ home university, who is responsible for nominating selecting students to UniTrento.
