Detailed applications stating the purpose and dates of the visit should be sent, together with a short curriculum vitae (MAXIMUM TWO PAGES), to the Head of Department, Andrea Ichino, at least three working months prior to the proposed visit. The months of July and August are holiday months and cannot be included in this calculation.
Short visits of up to one month can be arranged more informally. All that is required is the support of a current professor in the Department. Short-term visitors have access to Library, seminars and canteen, but no allocated desk or other office facilities unless these are available at the time. See EUI Health and Accident Insurance policy for short-term visitors.
Visiting and Exchange Students
Students registered in a postgraduate programme at another university or institute may be appointed as Visiting Students. The normal stay is 1-6 months. Visits of 6-10 months must be approved by the Entrance Board. In no case may a visit exceed 10 months. The status of Visiting Student does not involve any financial commitment on the part of the EUI.
Visiting Students are welcome to participate in all EUI academic activities and to consult and work in the Library. They are not entitled to a personal working space.
Applications stating the purpose and dates of the visit, together with a CV, outline of current Ph.D. research, a supporting reference from the research supervisor, and the name of any professor currently at the EUI working in their area, should be sent by email to Rossella Corridori, at least three working months before the planned visit (July-August are holiday months and cannot be included in the calculation). The EUI is not an Italian university and should not be considered as such for the purpose of a research visit.
Visiting Students who apply to the Ph.D. programme at the EUI have to prepare their application independently and cannot ask EUI faculty for advice on their application. The policy of the EUI departments is not to offer individual guidance and advice on PhD applications and dissertation proposals. Prospective applicants are requested not to contact potential supervisors for advice on their applications but to consult the department’s web pages where research themes are listed.
European Doctoral Programme (EDP)
The Department has exchange arrangements for visiting studentships within the EDP (European Doctoral Programme). Ph.D. candidates at one of the universities in the EDP should consult EDP For Non-EUI Researchers.
External Library Users
Before applying to become a Visiting Student, check whether a simple application to the Library as External User would be sufficient to meet your needs.
See Library Access Policy for external users and the Admission Request Form for Non-EUI Members.
