International mobility programme

FaBiT strongly promotes international mobility and has set up a specific Commission for Internationalization with the aim of monitoring and encouraging new exchanges for students and teaching/TA staff of the Department. Furthermore, the research laboratories of the Department welcome every year numerous incoming students who come to spend a training period and visiting scientists interested in departmental research and new opportunities for collaboration.

Erasmus+ Study

The Erasmus+ Study programme allows you to spend part of your university career, from two to twelve months, in another European country by attending courses and carrying out internships and experimental thesis activities.

The FaBiT offers over 80 exchanges each year receiving hundreds of questions. The Commission for Internationalization organizes meetings dedicated to the students of the Department's Study Programmes together with the administrative and teaching staff responsible for Erasmus exchanges, in order to inform about the different exchange possibilities and answer their questions. The meetings also concern the annual welcome day for incoming students.
