Mobility 2023/2024 Fall Semester

In this fall semester, three students of the National Aerospace University of Kharkiv "KHAI" have extended their mobility in Trento for another semester within the ICM 2022 project.
We are happy to collaborate with our Ukrainian partner and to give these students the opportunity to live a peaceful period, far from the difficult situation in their home country. 
We wish you a fruitful experience in Trento!

Academic Staff

This semester we had the opportunity to host a professor coming from Bangladesh with the ICM 2022/2023 to carry out his activities in the field of Social Sciences. 

In the next weeks we will be gladly hosting academic staff from the ICM 2022/ICM2023 projects coming from Cambodia. 
They will carry out their activities in the field of Cognitive Science. 

These mobilities are of great value because they give an opportunity to further strengthen the cooperation between partners and to enhance the quality and internationalisation of the academic offer.

Administrative Staff

The University of Trento has  organised an outgoing mobility for training reserved to 8 International and Mobility Offices staff of UniTrento. 
This opportunity of job shadowing allowed an exchange of best practices while planning new collaborations with our partners.

When I think of the Erasmus exchange, I think of richness. Richness of spirit, pushing one's own boundaries, experiencing new cultures, and of course, all the challenges that come with moving, finding accommodation, dealing with administration. But all of that is part of the beauty of the process.

As a first-year Master's student, I have decided to go to the University of Trento for the spring semester of 2023. When we think of Italy, the one from the movies, perhaps a somewhat commercialized image of the country, we think of Sicily, Milan, Naples. But there is a charming city among the Dolomites called Trento, offering extraordinary beauty. From mountains and vineyards to medieval castles, an unusual cuisine with Austrian influences because it is located in the northern part of Italy, and numerous lakes. The University of Trento is modern. While studying a combination of subjects from two fields, Innovation and International Management, we had assignments such as recording podcasts, giving Pecha Kucha presentations, and writing letters to CEOs of different companies. Through practical work, we learn faster and better, and consequently, you want to learn, listen to those lectures, and dedicate yourself to it with ease. Trento is wonderfully located, in the north of Italy, an hour away from Verona. All the cities are perfectly connected by trains, and flights are affordable, making travel easy. During the semester, I visited 15 beautiful Italian cities, talked to locals, learned from other cultures, got to know myself and my habits, broadened my horizons, and realized that life is too short to hesitate about going on an Erasmus exchange. All the uncertainties can be overcome, we have all faced obstacles at some point in our procedures within the system, and throughout this journey, you have an entire staff from the Host University who help you in this process, so you are never alone. Therefore, don't worry, be bold, take risks, because fortune favours the brave and daring!
