UNITN accepts incoming undergraduate and postgraduate exchange students throughout all departments and areas of study at the university. However, course restrictions may be conditioned by one or both of the following: Language level: for courses taught in Italian a minimum Italian level of A2 is required. For courses taught in English a minimum level of B1 or B2 is required. Pre-requisites: certain specialised or higher-level courses may have specific pre-requisite requirements.
View the course catalogue on the Trento website. Most detailed course outlines will be available in the Esse3 database. One UniSQ course would usually be equivalent to about six to eight ECTS, but this will be assessed by your UniSQ program coordinator.
Health insurance is required both for the Italian visa application and the subsequent student stay permit application. You can choose between:
A private health insurance policy bought in your home country that covers emergencies and which is valid for the entire duration of your stay in Italy. If the insurance is in your mother tongue, please have it translated at least to English for the stay permit request. Some examples of private international student health insurance policies can be found in the ‘Download Box’ using the link below.
Italian Health Insurance: You can enrol in the Italian National Health Service at the cost of 149.77 euros per calendar year, which is valid from the beginning of January until the end of December regardless of the month you pay. If you choose to enrol in the National Health Service you will benefit from the same services as Italian citizens.
For more detailed information please see the UNTN Health Insurance for Non-EU Citizens webpage.
If any insurance policy can be used, students may qualify to be covered under the UniSQ insurance policy. Please check with the UniSQ Mobility Team at the time of acceptance to the exchange program.
