Politecnico di Bari welcomes students and trainees coming from European and non-European countries in the framework of several Exchange programmes. Any incoming student can attend classes from our Bachelor's degrees and our Master's degrees, or carry out a traineeship/internship within one of our 4 Departments.
The incoming students involved are:
- Erasmus+ students and trainees
- International exchange students
Before you arrive
Every partner institution has to send us the main information on selected candidates, exclusively by nomination letters by ordinary mail or by e-mail.
Free movers' registration
The free movers willing to study or train at Politecnico di Bari have to:
- be accepted by a professor of the department of interest or a Departmental coordinator for international mobility;
- follow the procedure for incoming mobility.
The International Office, after receiving the "Nomination" from the partner universities, will send an acceptance email to all the incoming students.
Upon specific request, an official invitation letter will be issued only to the non-EU citizens who have to apply for a VISA for Italy. The regularly nominated students or the regularly accepted free-movers in the acceptance email will receive the access data to enter our webpage.
Before or at their arrival in Bari, students should have a Learning Agreement duly signed by their Home Institution Coordinator. In order to have it signed by the Coordinator of Politecnico di Bari, it will be necessary to get in direct contact with the Departmental Coordinator for Mobility during business hours.
After you arrive
Students arriving in Bari must urgently go to the International Office to finalize the registration. All the incoming students will receive a Certificate of Arrival stating clearly the date of the beginning of their stay. This document will be essential to enroll. At the end of the stay, students are provided with a Certificate of Attendance.
The enrolment is formalized at the International Office. Incoming students must hand in the following documents:
- Copy of the ID/Passport;
- Learning Agreement duly filled in and signed, including all the subjects the student would like to attend during his/her stay.
Modifications of the study plan
If during the stay the student needs to update (add or delete courses) on the study plan, it will be necessary to fill in the Changes to the study plan and hand it again to the International Office.
Before you leave
A few days before leaving Bari the student must go to the International Office ask to issue the Certificate of Attendance and the Transcript of Records. In case some exams aren't regularly registered, the International Office will send the transcript to the address the student stated in the form and to the University Partner..
