If you are interested in an exchange period at the Department of Computer Science of Pisa in the framework of the Erasmus+ Program, first of all contact the International Office / Study Abroad Office at your home institution. To be admitted to the Department of Computer Science as an exchange student, you must be nominated by your home institutions first writing to email@example.com. A nomination is possible only if there is a bilateral agreement currently in force between you home institution and the Department of Computer Science for your area of studies.
Deadline for nomination
- for the Autumn semester or Full Academic Year: 1 July.
- for the Spring semester: 1 November.
Only students nominated before the corresponding deadline will be allowed to complete the online application.
Once you are nominated by your home institution, the Computer Science Department Mobility Team will contact you by email with further instructions on how to apply as an exchange student.
Create Your Learning Agreement
The University of Pisa applies the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). One semester of full-time studies consists of 30 credits.
The Bachelor courses are held in Italian, Master courses are held in English: you can find in page Programmes on Offer a description of the programmes offered by the Department of Computer Science, and in page Description of Courses direct links to the list of courses offered by each programme.
The timetable of the courses will be available approximately one month before the beginning of the semester, but it is subject to last-minute changes.
As a rule, you can choose courses of your level of study (bachelor’s, master’s), but in well-justified cases this rule can be waived. You must fulfill the eligibility requirements for individual courses: check carefully if you fulfill the requirement listed on the course page, if any.
You can choose courses offered by Degree Programmes of other Departments of the University of Pisa (for example Computer Engineering) but at least one course must be from the Department of Computer Science.
Once the Learning Agreement “Before the mobility” is ready and signed both by the student and by the coordinator of her/his home institution, it has to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval.
In order to do a thesis/traineeship at the Department of Computer Science, you must find a supervisor among the lecturers of the Department. The supervisor must email email@example.com to confirm approval.
Good knowledge of Italian, at least B2 Level, is necessary to communicate and take part in lectures, classes or other academic activities for the Bachelor Programme.
Good knowledge of English, at least B2 Level, is necessary to communicate and take part in lectures, classes or other academic activities for the Master Programmes.
