All instructions for on-site mobility also apply to virtual mobility as far as they are compatible. Read carefully all the pages dedicated to exchange students.

To carry out your mobility entirely or in part virtually, you must be registered as an exchange student at the University of Bologna.

To start virtual mobility you need to check-in online.

Read on the websites of the CesenaForlìRavenna and Rimini Campuses the dates and opening hours of the International Relations Offices in the first semester of A.Y. 2020/21.

To check-in online you must show your passport.

The staff will identify you and activate your career as a virtual exchange student. As a virtual exchange student you will be able to take exams online. Online lectures are available even before the online Check-in, after registration.

At the online Check-in you will receive the Arrival Statement with digital stamp.

At the end of the virtual mobility you must check-out online in the same way as the online Check-in.

The staff will identify you and verify that all the exams you have taken have been recorded. You will then receive the Certificate of Departure and the Transcript of Records with digital stamp.

In the online Check-in and Check-out, no certificates in different formats will be issued and no forms provided by your university or third parties will be filled in.

If, on the other hand, you want to change your mobility mode, from virtual to on-site or vice versa, you must check-in or check-out (on site) by going personally to the desks. Two mode changes are allowed during your mobility. It is not possible to interrupt the mobility period.

Remember that entry and stay in Italy are governed by Italian law. Read the relevant information.

Important! to show up at the desks, you must have concluded the period of fiduciary isolation where applicable. More information on fiduciary isolation.

The Certificate of Departure and the Transcript of Records issued at the end of your exchange period will report the start and end dates of each mobility segment with an indication of the mode (on-site or virtual).
