Incoming exchange students @unibo

If you want to add an international dimension to your educational path by spending a mobility period abroad, the University of Bologna is pleased to welcome you. The University of Bologna takes part in many exchange programmes giving students from all over the world the opportunity to follow part of their educational programme at the University of Bologna.

General info

A.Y. 2022/23, learning activities in presence

In the a.y. 2022-23 lectures and exams will be exclusively in person. Mobility must be carried out on site. Only some special projects, for example Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programmes, may include remote activities.

A.Y. 2021/22, covid-19 emergency, learning activities in presence and in remote mode

From 1 May 2022 it is no longer mandatory to have a Green Pass (EU digital COVID certificate), issued in a country of the European Union or the Schengen Area to carry out activities on site. 

Read the measures adopted by the University of Bologna to allow university activities to be carried out safely and pay close attention to the section dedicated to student incoming mobility.


In the second semester of the academic year 2021/22, teaching activities (lectures, practices, etc.) will take place in blended mode, in classrooms but also accessible remotely. The possibility of offering in-presence teaching is linked to the progress of the health emergency and the decisions of the Italian government. Not all students are guaranteed the opportunity to attend lectures in person.


From February 2022, exams will take place in presence. Important! Only until 31 May 2022, exchange students @unibo will be exempt from the obligation to sit exams in presence and will be allowed to take exams online.

For more information on lectures, exams and internships

In the blended teaching period, it is possible to carry out mobility remotely (virtual mobility), on site, or by combining the two modes. Two mode changes are allowed during a mobility. It is not possible to interrupt the mobility period. 

All information relating to on-site mobility also applies to remote (virtual) mobility as far as compatible.
