Internationalization is one of the main priorities of the Department of Foreign languages and Literatures. We work on Internationalisation from three main platforms:


356 students from the Department are currently studying abroad.
  • Through the Erasmus+ Programme Exchanges, we have more than 100 Partner Universities around and beyond Europe. The Department in the academic year 2017/18 has around 329 of his students abroad.
  • We also send students Worldwide - 23 at the moment - to the USA, to Argentina, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Russia (4 students are now at the Tomsk State University), South Korea, Taiwan and China. 


  • With our current PhD Programme in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures (along with the previous PhD programmes in English Studies and PhD in Foreign Literatures and Literary Studies) we have activated research exchanges with all the Universities with which we already work on Teaching Staff Exchange and Students Exchange Programmes. This constant attention to in- & out- research channels renders our Doctoral School extremely active and performative.


  • A new Double Degree has been set up with the University of A Coruña for the Master degree in Comparative European and Non-European Languages and Literatures. It will allow the students who want to pursue this objective to obtain two full titles: the Italian one and the one from the foreign partner university. This would open more doors to job placements and/or research beyond Italy.
