Procedures

Selection Commission considers all applications and appoints interviews with all applicants. Then the decision about the nomination (of up to 6 nominees on average per semester) is made based on the documents provided and the results of interviews.

Evaluation of applications is carried out according to the following criteria:

- Selected courses at the University of Bologna – max 50 points

- Motivation letter – max 20 points

- Letter of recommendation – max 10 points

- Academic achievements – max 10 points

- English Language Level – max 10 points

Under the agreement, HSE students coming to UniBo, are exempt from tuition fees, but other expenses (flight, food, accommodation) are the responsibility of students.

As an exchange student you are obliged to choose a number of courses in UniBo. These courses should match your level of study (e.g. master level or bachelor level). If you want to use ECTS earned in UniBo for the needs of your HSE Program, the number of selected courses, the contact hours and ECTS/credits should correspond approximately to the courses of your Program (this information is provided in the Learning Agreement, which you need to approve with the Program administration in advance). Due to the heavy load (including large amounts of reading) it is recommended to choose not more than 4 courses per semester.
