International Student Exchange

Contact: Prof. Ada Pulvirenti

This page provides information for incoming students attending a B.Sc. in Mathematics (Laurea in Matematica) or a M.Sc. in Mathematics (Laurea Magistrale in Matematica). Information for outgoing students is provided here. Feel free to contant Prof. Ada Pulvirenti for any question. General information for incoming students at UniPV is available here.


Pavia is a ''college town'' with 24,000 students attending its University. The University of Pavia is one of oldest in Europe, being founded in 1361.


Each academic year is devided into two terms (semesters) starting respectively at the beginning of October and March. There are exam sessions at the end of each semester and others in September.

Below you will find the list of courses available in the academic year 2015/16. Most of them should be  also available in  the next academic year; it is however advisable to ask in advance. Information is in English but classes are given in Italian.
