International opportunities for students

UniTrento-SISSA Programme

The University of Trento and the International School for advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste offer a two-year joint education programme named Graduate Programme in Cognitive Science.

Only students already enrolled in the Master's course in Cognitive Science at UniTrento and attending the first year can apply for the UniTrento - SISSA programme. Selections are made at the end of the first semester: admitted studens (up to 4 every year)  will complete their first year at UniTrento and then move to Trieste to spend their second year at SISSA. They will receive economic benefits during their stay in the respective locations.

Students participating in the programme are required to gain 12 supplementary credits, carry out their internship and the master thesis project at SISSA.

Admitted students who succeed in fulfilling the requirements of the Program will obtain the official Italian degree Laurea Magistrale in Cognitive Science - Scienze Cognitive (classe LM-55 Scienze Cognitive) from UniTrento and the Diploma (Magister) in Cognitive Science from SISSA.

The labs available for internship and Master's thesis research at SISSA are the following:
