Visiting students

The Visiting Student Programme offers the opportunity to foreign students to spend either one semester or the whole academic year studying at IULM University on a fee paying basis.

The Visiting Students Programme welcomes students coming from Institutions with which IULM has not signed any bilateral agreement. These students will have the opportunity to spend either one semester or the whole academic year at IULM University (on a non-degree basis). It is also addressed to those partner Universities who wish to send to IULM more students than previously agreed.

IULM University will accept only a limited number of visiting students per semester. For administrative reasons a higher number of students will be admitted in the second semester (February-July).

Visiting students will have to pay a registration fee of €​ 1300 for one semester and 
€ ​2​500 for two semester. 
Payment will be due after the students have been accepted by IULM, and before the beginning of the semester. The International Office will send information concerning the terms of payment directly to the students. Bank costs will be charged to the students.

Visiting students will have the opportunity to attend all classes of our undergraduate  courses. In case of limited number courses, the admission will be confirmed by the Study Abroad Office at the beginning of the semester. They will be allowed to choose courses in order to earn up to 30 credits per semester. Tuition at IULM is in Italian. Prior to each semester the International Office organizes an intensive Italian language course, which is also open to visiting students.

A number of courses in English is also available.

In addition, each student will have to provide the Study Abroad Office with the following documents:

  • 1 passport photo;
  • 1 copy of ID document or passport;
  • a copy of the Transcript of Records;
  • European Health Card or private health insurance
  • a copy of the nomination letter signed by the Home Institution

At the end of their stay at IULM visiting students will receive a Transcript including all the exams taken and the relevant credits.
