The Institute participates in some 30 exchange programmes with universities and institutions in Europe and beyond. The aim is to give EUI doctoral researchers in their second and third year the possibility of advancing their doctoral studies by attending another institution with similar research interests.
Study periods in institutions falling outside the Exchange Programmes
Researchers wishing to attend an institution not included in the Exchange Programmes may do so but should apply independently or via the department.
The department must approve the stay and for a visit of more than one month, it must also be approved by the Entrance Board. The request for participating in such visits must include a letter of invitation from the host insitution, contact details and a letter of support from the researcher's supervisor in addition to the standard letter of intent and CV.
Researchers should be aware that if they are accepted as a visiting student by another institution, the latter may charge tuition and/or registration fees. The payment of these fees is not covered by the Exchange Programmes.
