Exchange students have access to seminars and facilities and are able to participate in the cultural activities of the Scuola. If you wish to submit an application for the exchange please submit a brief note outlining why you wish to apply for the exchange and what work you wish to pursue whilst there together with a letter of support from your supervisor.
