Visiting and Exchange Students

Visiting Students

EUI welcomes applications from PhD students from around the world wishing to spend a period of time doing research at the EUI. Priority is given to students whose research interests relate directly to work being carried out within EUI’s academic units and are of particular interest to one or more of its teaching staff.

Exchange Students

Students registered at a university holding an active agreement with the EUI may be appointed as Exchange Students. Interested students should contact their home university to ensure that an active agreement is in place between the EUI and their university, and to receive instructions about the application process.

Information for applicants can be found in the departmental pages:

Practical information for visitors

All EUI members must be covered by a health insurance policy that is valid in Italy for emergency and general healthcare for the whole duration of their stay at the Institute. Kindly note that it is the visitor’s individual responsibility to ensure compliance at all times with these health insurance requirements during the time of an EUI affiliation. Visitors may subscribe to the health insurance of their choice, however the chosen plan should be at least equivalent to the Cigna basic medical plan (the EUI health insurance provider). More information can be found in the EUI’s Health Insurance webpage.

Non-EU/EEA fellows who require a visa to travel to Italy, should file their request for a special Visa (Type D - Mission) with the relevant Italian Embassy/Consulate. The EUI assists fellows providing them with complete information and issuing special letters of visa support and additional documentation to be presented to the Italian Embassy/Consulate.

Should you require a Visa to travel to Italy, please visit EUI’s Visa Information webpage and contact [email protected] at least 3 months prior to your travel to Italy.

Students who have been accepted to study at EUI as Visiting or Exchange Students can find practical information and prepare for their time in Florence in the following booklet: Life in Florence: Practical information for EUI newcomers.
