International mobility

  • Outgoing Mobility
    Going abroad is a good opportunity to acquire new skills and competencies, broaden your horizons, expand your social networks, get to know a new country and the locals. This mobility can involve students, teachers, and staff. 

Visiting Fellow and Visiting Student

The Visiting Fellow is a scholar with an appropriate scientific qualification, who carries out teaching, research, collaboration, and scientific exchange activities at a department of the University of Pisa. 

The Visiting Student is a student enrolled at a foreign university who decides to spend a period of study or pre-professional training in a department of Pisa University, who moves in the absence of an exchange agreement between their institution and Unipi and because they are interested in a training offer available at Pisa university or following contact with a teacher.

International student activities 

  • Double/multiple titles and joint titles 

These qualifications are study paths organized with foreign universities that provide for forms of integration of the curricula and structured mobility schemes for students, with the mutual recognition of educational activities. The issue of double or multiple qualifications implies that, at the end of the course, the student obtains, in addition to the title of the home university, also the academic qualifications of the other participating universities, from which they have acquired educational credits. The issue of a joint title, on the other hand, consists in obtaining a single title recognized and validated by all the institutions that have promoted the joint course of study. Joint titles link
