What the Seasonal Schools are
The Seasonal Schools are training programmes “of excellence”, which are strongly interdisciplinary, and focused on the School’s frontier research topics. They are open to University students enrolled in Bachelor Degree, Masters’ Degree and PhD courses, and who have the same advancement characteristics as the School’s students. The Seasonal Schools are also opportunities for meetings and exchanges with other high-performing students from all over Italy as well as from abroad, to be experienced “inside” our facilities and laboratories.
The Seasonal Schools have a duration of one or two weeks; they are held preferably in English and may be held on-site or online. Participants will be awarded a certificate of attendance at the end of the programme after passing a final examination, with full recognition of the credits (CFU) indicated in each call.
Candidates eligible for admission will be: students enrolled in a Bachelor degree or PhD course at an Italian or foreign university, and who are on track relative to the examinations required by their educational institutions and with an average examination mark at least equal to 27/30 in the Italian system, or at least B in international system.
