International mobility

Students in the School of Design can choose between lots of partners abroad. More than 150 European universities and 75 Outside the European Union Universities have exchange agreements with our School.


The students selected for an exchange programme have the opportunity to enrich their academic experience by spending a period at a partner university, thereby acquiring credits that will be recognized by Politecnico di Milano.


Several opportunities are available:

• a period of study as part of Erasmus mobility, or and international mobility outside the European Union

• a work placement in companies or university labs 

• a period abroad to prepare a thesis 

• Double Degrees
