Visiting PhD exchanges may be agreed with professors in the departments and they are managed directly by the departments, not by the PhD School. Candidates should contact directly the faculty members of the department and areas of interest.

The Erasmus Programme offers support for mobility of students within European countries.

Politecnico di Milano welcomes PhD candidates from other European universities under this programme.

Selection procedures are managed within the home university. For PhD candidates, after selection for the programme, the Politecnico has to accept the students for mobility, so it is preferable to make contact with a research group in advance, to plan the visit.
