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.

Accommodation in Bologna

Students are experiencing unprecedented difficulties in finding accommodation in Bologna, due to the resumption of economic activities and tourist flows after the COVID emergency. It is strongly not recommended to arrive in Bologna without having already found accommodation for the mobility period.
