The Politecnico di Torino has always been one of the top choices for Engineering and Architecture worldwide. Its relevant international students community has grown immensely throughout the years and helped strengthen the relationships with other important international universities. Great resources and efforts have been invested to put this process at the heart of the university’s strategic policies.
Some key factors have contributed to make Politecnico a truly international and multicultural university which is currently chosen by over 5,000 international students from more than 115 countries (16% of all PoliTO students): the development of a course catalogue in English, support for international mobility, the creation of a specific department for internationalization and attraction of foreign students, PhD candidates and researchers, the participation in joint projects and research programmes and the creation of new campuses abroad.
Politecnico envisages a number of essential targets for the university: establishing Politecnico di Torino among the top technical universities at international level, merging high-level scientific research with high-quality education and efficient technology transfer actions, knowledge sharing.
Even during this challenging time, PoliTO’s prompt reaction has aimed to guarantee assistance to all the students and international applicants. Online teaching was immediately available for all students, and will be guaranteed also for the Academic Year 2020/21. Understanding the difficulties in retrieving the documents, PoliTO has extended deadlines for language certificates submission and new Master of Science application call has opened, never ceasing to provide direct assistance to all applicants.
