Incoming Mobility 2021/2022 Fall Semester
Our partner can now nominate students for the academic year 2021/2022 via our online nomination tool according to the following deadlines:
- May 15th, 2021 for Fall Semester and full year students.
- October 15th, 2021 for Spring Semester.
During the ongoing spring semester courses are still offered online, for the fall semester 2021/2022 we are planning to provide a mix of on-line and face-to-face course ensuring adequate social distancing and safety.
A 10-day self-isolation period is deemed mandatory for incoming students coming from non-EU countries. Please fill in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs questionnaire for updated information about mobility to Italy. The quarantine period is covered by the EU grant support but cannot be spent in university housing and students must arrange and pay for their own quarantine lodging.
In order to facilitate transportation, UniTrento provides private pick-up service for those students arriving at the Verona airport. In case no direct flight to this airport is available, it is therefore recommended to plan the international flight to Rome Fiumicino airport, from which two daily internal flights are available to reach Verona.
Please visit the Ministry of Health website for the latest news. Please keep in mind that as the disease monitoring may change, all the guidelines may be revised. For updates, please regularly check the UniTrento webpage for incoming international students.
Last February the Spring Semester began for 13 grantees who started their exchange period online with a foreseen period here in Trento afterwards, for a minimum of 90 days (blended mobility). In these cases, funds are granted for the period at UniTrento only. Four students choose to follow the course from their home country (virtual mobility), with no grant. Further information about ICM grantees feedback can be found at the testimonials page in the link box.
Starting from the Fall Semester 2020, Staff mobility may be carried out either entirely in presence, entirely online or in a blended modality. The individual support will be paid only for those held in presence. When planning the physical mobility, please consider a mandatory self-isolation period upon arrival.
Please contact the International Relations Division for further information.
UniTrento ICM Network
We kindly invite administrative and academic referent persons and staff to join our new LinkedIn group UNITRENTO ER+ ICM NETWORK to share opportunities and to stay up-to-day about current initiatives.
About the project
The New ERASMUS+ starts here. We are pleased to announce that the 2021-2027 Erasmus+ programme has begun. This new EU initiative places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions and promotes young people’s participation in democratic life.
The new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 call, which had been published, will be starting next year. Please note that the project name is no longer KA107 but KA171. An information meeting for the project will be held on April 16th, for more details visit the UniTrento website.
The mid-term evaluation report has been submitted last February. Notwithstanding the challenges to travel and international exchanges in the 2020/2021 academic year, UniTrento managed to carry out 61 mobility, about 30% of the overall budget.
Before the project deadline on July 31st, 2022, next Fall and Spring semesters will be the last opportunity to implement this ICM project. We hope for a fruitful collaboration between UniTrento and the other Partner universities for a full use of the budget.
As the project was supposed to end in July 2020, a 1-year extension has been submitted to the European Commission and the new deadline will be July 31st, 2021.
Currently 90% of the total budget has been spent, all student mobilities have been carried out. The remaining 8 administrative and academic staff mobility can be used before the July deadline, if the health emergency situation abroad allows it.
In comparison with the previous ones, the 2020 ICM Erasmus+ programme places a strong emphasis on social inclusion. With this aim in mind, a questionnaire will be sent to all of our partners in order to outline how the broad category identified by the EU Agency concretely applies to their country according to the local legislation and/or Institution rules and local customs.
