Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result of a long and broad consultation within our institution, the University of Trieste has decided to cancel all Erasmus+ mobilities, incoming and outgoing, for the Autumn semester 2020-2021 and postpone them to the Spring semester.
Incoming students nominated by their university for an Erasmus+ exchange due to start in the first semester of the 2020-2021 academic year can either withdraw, or postpone their mobility to the Spring semester.
The decision was taken in order to protect students' safety, and to find a solution that would avoid expenses related with the organization of travels and stay abroad that might eventually turn out useless. Moreover, we also mean to defend the importance of a life experience that cannot be limited to e-learning.
The University of Trieste is constantly monitoring the situation, in cooperation with our Ministry and the Italian National Agency INDIRE. We'll inform our partner universities and our nominated incoming students in a timely manner about any possible outcome.
