International opportunities for students

With its 11 Departments and 3 Centres, the University of Trento offers to international students a wide choice of courses at Bachelor, Master and PhD level. You can find the complete educational offer, either in Italian or in English, in the Esse3 database.

Courses taught in Italian

Courses taught in Italian are open to international students with Italian proficiency: minimum level A2 of the Common European Language Framework or B1 depending on the Department.

Mobility for courses: courses offered in English or in other foreign languages 

The list of courses offered in English are divided according to the educational area:

Please note: the courses choice must be pre-approved by the Home University and by the University of Trento by the use of the learning agreement, that the exchange student has to define before his/her arrival. For the admission to courses in English please consider the specific academic and language requirements specified in the courses tables. Please consider that the list of courses is updated once a year. For the most recent updates please refer to the Esse3 link above.

Please note: for Erasmus+ students (from European countries only), 60% of the courses must be chosen in the Department for which the student has been selected.
