The Board of Directors of Politecnico di Torino decided
to extend the Package of Mobility and Cultural Initiatives to all PhD candidates enrolled for the a.y. 2018/2019
in a PhD program with administrative seat at Politecnico di Torino.
Thanks to this package they will benefit from discounted prices on their travel
ticket and Museum pass.
In order to receive
the Package of Mobility
and Cultural Initiatives
they will have to send a formal
request through the online procedure
available on their personal
page of the Teaching
Portal before 28th December 2018, complying with the following instructions.
TRAVEL TICKET REFUND
Politecnico will refund to a
maximum of €150 only travel tickets purchased
between 1st July 2018 and 28th December 2018 with a duration between 10 and 12 months (weekly or monthly tickets
will not be refunded). Candidates can purchase the ticket from any transport service
that allow them to reach their Politecnico campus (GTT, Trenitalia, Arriva – Sadem…)
In the online procedure they will have to attach a scanned copy of the purchase
receipt where their personal data must be clearly stated.
The sum will be credited on the students’ virtual current account and the refund will be provided directly to the PhD
candidates, therefore they will
be asked to indicate how they
want to receive the refund and it will not
be possible to leave the credit on the personal page to pay the university fees.
Through the online
procedure PhD candidates can ask for the Museum Pass activated
from January 2019;
they are requested to pay
a contribution of 8€. This contribution will have to be paid during the online procedure according to the modalities indicated. It will
not be possible to complete the request
before paying the contribution.
In January the Associazione Musei will contact
interested PhD candidates to provide them with information to activate the
Museum Pass. Further information
about the Museum Pass
are available at this link.
