Incoming students

An Erasmus student is a student who comes to UNIPI to study for one semester or a whole academic year within a bilateral agreement between the faculty / school of his/her home university and the Department of Law of the University of Pisa.

This kind of bilateral agreements are signed with universities in EU member states and affiliated countries.

In order to be an Erasmus at UNIPI, the person in charge of the International Relations at  home university has to nominate the students selected for the Erasmus exchange programme to the Erasmus coordinator of the Department of Law.
