University of Trento (Italy): International Winter Schools 2021

The University of Trento invites students to participate in two International Winter Schools, specifically designed for your Senior Undergraduate and Graduate students:

  1. Winter School on Gender Equality in Times of Populism and Sovereignism – GETPoS from January 18th to January 29th 2021
  2. Winter School on Survey Sampling Methods – SuSaM from February 1st to February 12th 2021

The academic component includes not only lectures, workshops, seminars and debates, but also field visits related to the specific topic of the School.

In addition, there are various social and cultural activities, such as a guided tour of the town, a one-day excursion to the surrounding mountains and museum visits

The reduced participation cost reserved for nominated students coming from partner universities is 450 euros (instead of 1,000 euros) and includes accommodation, meals (except for breakfast), bus pass and social activities.

The Winter Schools are taught completely in English. Therefore, a minimum English level of B2 is required.

In order to participate, partner universities must nominate students by October 30th 2020. In order to nominate a student, please send an e-mail to: with the following information about the candidate/s:

  • Name and last name
  • Academic program or major, type of degree and year (i.e., 3rd year of a Bachelor’s degree)
  • E-mail address

Nominated candidates will then be guided in the on-line application, which for nominated students is due by November 15th 2020. By the end of November students can also find a provisional program on the webpage for each School.

Each STP will be activated with a minimum of 10 participants.

At the end of each School, participants will receive an Attendance Certificate and an official UniTrento Transcript of Records certifying the number of ECTS credits awarded by each School (more details can be found on each webpage).

Please note that both Winter Schools are currently being organized to be held face-to-face with students physically present in Trento. However, based on the evolution of the global COVID-19 situation later in the year, it is possible that the SuSaM Winter School will be offered in a blended format or completely on-line, but this will not be determined until early December 2020. Please note that GETPoS Winter School will only be held if students are able to physically attend classes in Trento and an on-line version will not be offered. Payment from the students will not be required until December 10th so as to give them time to be sure about the possibility to travel to Italy.

In addition to these, more STPs will be offered at UniTrento organized by different offices and departments with different requirements, fees and application processes. During the next few months updates can be found on our Summer and Winter Schools webpage.
