Mobility 2022/2023 Fall Semester/Full academic year

We kindly remind to all the students that are ending their mobility programme at UniTrento that if they are planning any change on their departure date, this must be communicated to the International Division Office at least two weeks before leaving.

Future Students

We received nominations for 32 students within the ICM 2020 programme. The future mobility students will arrive in Trento for the spring semester from 8 countries and from 14 different partner universities. 15 of the students will attend master courses, 7 are PhD students and 10 are undergraduated students.  

We informe partners univeristies that nominations are still possible with a three-months notice for PhDs and students coming to Trento for thesis research.


Academic Staff

For the spring semester, 10 academic staff mobility have been nominated. They come from 4 partner universities: University of Sarajevo (Bosnia-Erzegovina), University of Pristina (Kosovo), North Caucasus Federal University (Russian Federation), Amrita University - Coimbatore (India).

Also 8 mobilities have already been done during the fall semester with professors coming from University of Carthage (Tunisia), University of Tunis El Manar (Tunisia), University of Hanoi (Vietnam), University of Pristina (Kosovo), Amrita University-Coimbatore (India).

Moreover 2 professors from UniTrento visited one the Nara Institute of Technology (Japan) and the other one the Polytechnic University of Tirana (Albania). 

The mobility for staff is a great opportunity to further strengthen the cooperation with our partners!

Host University: Royal University of Phnom Penh - Cambogia 
Mobility Period: July 2022

A new experimental psychology laboratory for the Royal University of Phnom Penh - Cambodia   

I’m a technician of the experimental studies laboratories at the Department of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Trento and I didn’t have many opportunities to travel for my job, so, when Prof. Remo Job proposed me to leave for the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) in Cambodia, I jumped at the opportunity.  

The goal was to set up, starting from scratch, an experimental psychology laboratory at the Psychology Department of the RUPP and to make teachers, technicians and students learn about its functioning and development over time. With the financing of the non-profit Marica De Vincenzi Foundation, it was possible to purchase a high-performance computer thanks to which it was possible to carry out four cognitive psychology experiments: Stroop Effect, Lexical Decision, Simon's Spatial Compatibility Task and Gaze Cue.

Upon our arrival we were captured by a new and different environment: the lush and fascinating nature, the very beautiful buildings alternated with dilapidated buildings, the city vibrated with great excitement and activity full of motorbikes, cars and tuk-tuks, all immersed in a hot and humid climate, completely different from that of Trentino.

At the Psychology Department of the RUPP campus we were welcomed by the Director Mr. Phan ChanPeou and by the professors Dr. Kao Savandara and Dr. Sareth Khann. Prof. Savandara took charge of deepening the technical aspects and while I was setting up the istruments for the lab, prof. Job introduced the students to the exchange program between the two universities and also introduced theoretical and empirical studies relating to the experiments made available.

Their passion for study and science overcame the obstacles dictated by a very essential and poorly equipped environment; being able to verify in practice and "touch" what until then had only been studied in books proved to be the key to the enthusiastic participation in the proposed laboratory activities. In a workshop, Prof. Job explored the theoretical aspects of the tasks implemented and I presented the technical and programming aspects. The students then alternated in carrying out two of the four experiments available with the recording of response times and accuracy. Finally, the pupils were asked to develop a study hypothesis on the mental representation of quantities that could give rise to an experiment that could be implemented on the computer.

The participation and commitment shown during the teaching activities were of a great level and quality, with numerous interventions and questions. The work week was intense but very rewarding. The warmth and gratitude that teachers and students showed us at the end of the experience, also through two baskets of Cambodian fruit, were for me the tangible sign that the initiative was useful and appreciated.
