Incoming Exchange Students

Information for incoming exchange students - Dietistic Degree Programme

This page provides information for incoming exchange students of the Dietistic Degree Programme (Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, School of Medicine).

Please read carefully the information materials, as they will guide you through most of the administrative procedures required:


Before your exchange

Check whether your home University has an agreement with us for student mobility for studies (e.g. Erasmus+ Studies, Overseas, etc.). The international exchanges coordinator of your home University can provide information about the selection process leading up to your official nomination as an exchange student coming to the University of Bologna.

If no agreement is in place, we regret that we cannot accept you as an exchange student; however, you may consider applying for an Erasmus+ Traineeship exchange.


Read the general information page for all incoming exchange students at the University of Bologna - it covers topics such as accommodation, language courses, healthcare, etc. ("Prima di arrivare"), as well as your first days in Bologna ("Durante il periodo di scambio").


Fill in your Learning Agreement for Studies

Our course catalogue ("piano didattico") is available here.

When choosing your learning activities:

  • Check the semester information ("periodo" column) and choose only courses that will take place during your stay.
  • Courses (theoretical classes): you may choose either a full integrated course (e.g. 39135-CHIMICA DEGLI ALIMENTI E TECNOLOGIE ALIMENTARI (C.I.)-7 ECTS credits), or one or more of its modules (e.g. 39137-SCIENZE MERCEOLOGICHE E TECNOLOGIE ALIMENTARI-4 ECTS credits). It is not possible to list both an integrated course and its modules.
  • Elective courses (theoretical classes): elective courses can only be listed as integrated courses.
  • Clerkships: please refer to Dr. Francesca Pasqui for details about clerkships for incoming exchange students.
  • Make sure that each learning activity is listed on a separate line with its corresponding five-digit code and number of ECTS credits (do NOT sum or add ECTS credits of different learning activities).

You can use either the Learning Agreement form provided by your home University, or the Erasmus+ template provided in the "Allegati" box on the right side of this page.
