The Normale welcomes international students, researchers and lecturers interested in visiting, and provides them with the necessary support so that it can be a constructive and stimulating experience, as well as an opportunity for exchange and growth for the entire community of the Normale.
The start of the academic year at the Normale is celebrated on October 18th. Lessons and seminars run from October to June, with breaks during Christmas and Easter holidays.
Students who wish to come and study at the Normale within the Erasmus/SEMP programme, or other exchange programmes governed by bilateral agreements between the Normale and a partner institution, must apply from their home university.
Researchers and professors from international universities wishing to visit the academic community of the Scuola Normale can apply for admission as Visiting Fellow at any time of the year.
