Practical information for mobility students

Welcome to the University of Pisa!

Before you leave:

Please make sure you get in touch with the Italian Erasmus coordinator (otherwise known as CAI, "Coordinatore di Area per l'Internazionalizzazione), especially for the Erasmus Placement, to:

  • Find out how the department is organized and what courses you should take as well as when to take Italian lessons
  • Learn about all of the administrative steps necessary in order to start
  • While you are still abroad you could register online through the Alice portal, in order to obtain the credentials required to complete the enrolment procedure at the University of Pisa
  • Fill in and submit the Application form for incoming students where you will be asked to upload the Learning Agreement before the mobility and obtain the validation from the CAI

In order to be as prepared as possible for this new experience, please keep in mind a few logistical aspects:

  • Accommodation: Check useful information about finding accommodation. We strongly recommend you to get started with your apartment search as soon as you can
  • Visa and residency permit: Compulsory steps if you are an incoming Non-EU Erasmus student
  • Entry and residency rights for EU citizens
  • Cost of living: although living in Pisa can be quite inexpensive, please do keep in mind that the cost of living is greater than the regular monthly stipend received by the Erasmus programme
  • Health insurance: learn how the health system works in Italy and what steps you need to follow before your departure
  • Opening a Bank account: find out if your bank at home has a branch in Italy or any agreements with an Italian bank in Pisa

Please make sure to read our International Student Guide with a summary on each of these aspects.

What to do once you arrive in Pisa?

Sometimes students may feel a bit overwhelmed by the novelty of a new city. This is absolutely normal. Following are a few steps that will help you feel more confident as you head into this new adventure:

Necessary steps:

  1. E-mail your CAI representative to set up an appointment so you can meet
  2. If you have not yet registered through the Alice portal, this is the time to do so
  3. If you are an incoming Non-EU Erasmus student, coming from a non-Schengen Country, apply for the Residency permit. You need the post office receipt attesting the submission of the Residency permit application, before making an appointment (next step). On the other hand, if you are a Non-EU Erasmus student, coming from a Schengen Country, you do not have to apply for the Italian residency permit provided you have the requested documents indicated at  
  4. Please, fill in and submit the Application form for incoming students, if you have not done it yet
  5. You can finally download the documents concerning your mobility through the Erasmus Manager

All of these steps, will finally make your "Erasmus student" status official!
