Visiting students are those students who decide to enroll in single courses, attend and take the related exams. Some of them come from Universities which do not have an international agreement with the University of Pavia for exchange students.

Enrolling in single courses (corsi singoli) allows students to attend teaching courses held at the University of Pavia for one academic year and to take the exams. Find out our single courses list here.
