Collegio Volta and Trinity College Cambridge have reached an agreement enabling students of either College to exchange academic visits for periods of study or research.  Although full details of the scheme will be finalised in the autumn of 2017 and will come into force for the academic year 2017/18, Trinity College is ready to host the first three students of Collegio Volta from the summer of 2017.

Collegio Volta will provide partial support to its students toward travel, accommodation and living expenses in Cambridge and students interested in applying for one of the three placements are  invited to contact the College Master in order to discuss further details. The deadline for formal applications is the 30th of April 2017.
