Erasmus and Exchange students
To be able to spend an exchange mobility period at the University of Torino (as an Erasmus+ or International exchange student) your home university must have an active bilateral agreement with Unito in the subject area of your studies. Your home university must also nominate you officially for an exchange place under the terms of this agreement (e.g.: total number of students, months of mobility, study level, etc…).

Once you complete the online application form, the International Mobility Office will check it and send you an email as final confirmation and acceptance. Incoming students’ application forms will be accepted only in the frame of the study areas included in the bilateral agreements signed by University partners for the a.y. 2018-2019 and only after students have been regularly nominated by their home University (email to email@example.com ).
Double-degree Programmes: if you plan to spend your compulsory study abroad period in the frame of a double degree programme at the University of Torino, the information how to register will be available within July 2018.
School of Medicine locations: the University of Torino has two different locations for the School of Medicine, one is located in Turin and the other one in Orbassano (for example, the Department of Public Health and Pediatrics is located in Torino, whereas the Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences in Orbassano). When completing the online application form make sure to check the location of the Department in order to organize your mobility period in the best way possible (for example, to choose the most suitable location for your accommodation).
Erasmus and international students enrolled at the University of Turin for an exchange period must follow the Administrative procedure 2017-2018 during their study period.
Academic offer and degree courses
Lessons at the University of Turin are usually in Italian language and exams should mostly be taken in Italian as well. However, there are also degree courses fully taught in English and many single courses (exams) offered in foreign languages, mainly English:
- list of single courses (exams) taught in foreign languages (mainly English)
- list of degree courses fully taught in English
Students can also check with the professor of each course if they are allowed to take exams in other languages.
The updated list of courses taught in foreign languages will be updated starting from September. In the meantime, for information about the academic calendar and courses, students must refer to the Department website where they will spend their mobility period.
The Learning Agreement has to be agreed upon by the professor of UniTO in charge of the Bilateral Agreement signed with the University of origin. The name of the professor is indicated in the application form. For approval of Learning Agreement, please directly contact the professor using the people directory.
As regards some Departments (mainly in the Medicine and Surgery areas) it is necessary to check the study plan with the Italian professor in charge of the bilateral agreement before arriving in Turin. This is also generally recommended in case of special study projects (internships and thesis researches) in any disciplines.
Career plan and exams
In order to take exams at the University of Turin, you must fill in the online Career plan inserting all the subjects included in your Learning Agreement.
To take exams, you will also have to apply online for the specific date of the exam you want to take ("appello").
Application for exams and online registration of marks are compulsory to have your final Transcript of Recorsds with all the exams.
Italian language courses for incoming students do not have to be included in the Career plan and do not need any application for the exam ("appello"); they will be included in the Transcript of records directly by the International Mobility Office.
Erasmus Office organizes four orientation meetings dedicated to Erasmus students and to international exchange students spending a mobility period at the University of Turin on the basis of a bilateral agreement with extraeuropean Universities.
Taking part to the meetings is not compulsory, but it is highly recommended as students are informed about the University services and the steps to be followed during their mobility period (Italian language courses, Learning Agreement and administrative procedures).
Each meeting deals with the same topics, so it is not necessary to take part to all four meetings, but just to one. We therefore advise you to participate in the first orientation meeting available after your arrival in Turin.
