Erasmus+ is the new European programme for 2014-2020 designed to support education, training, youth
and sports. It offers study and research experiences abroad that are acknowledged as part of the academic career (courses, examinations, theses, research, laboratory and clinical activities), and envisages internship in companies and organisations.
The programme promotes the quality of teaching in European and non-European countries, supports teaching and research on European integration, and promotes the participation of youth in society, the acquisition of linguistic skills and understanding of intercultural frameworks.
DEMM offers exchange opportunities with many International Universitie, among which:
- University of Leicester
- Universitaet Mannheim
- Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
- Universidad Complutense de Madrid
- Universitat de Barcelona
- Warsaw School of Economics
- Université Jean Moulin - Lyon III
- University of Oslo
The following candidates can apply for the Erasmus+ programme:
• all students enrolled in undergraduate degree courses, master’s degree courses, PhD, specialisation andvocational master courses at the University;
Warning For Bachelor Degree and Single-Cycle Master’s Degree courses, students must be enrolled at least to the second year.
• even students who have already received an Erasmus mobility fellowship (either for studies or for a
placement in the past, under LLP Programme) may receive an additional fellowship but only for a period that, added to the completed one, does not exceed the 12 months of total mobility envisaged for each study cycle (24 months for Single-Cycle Master’s Degree courses).
Warning Students who receive an Erasmus+ fellowship cannot make use of other grants funded by the
European Union during the same period, but they can be entitled to receive the whole amount of any Italian study grants.
To access the Erasmus+ programme, students shall participate in a competitive announcement by consulting both the general announcement and the one for single courses (published online, usually between late January and early February), and pass a selection process that also envisages an interview.
Competitive Announcements (general and for single courses)
The general competition announcement of the University only provide information on admission criteria, the total amount provided by the fellowship, instructions to submit the application, and language courses.
More detailed information is contained in the competitive announcements for individual degree courses, which specify:
• the number of fellowship available for each course and the duration of the study period abroad
• specific candidate requirements
• modes of enrolment and selection procedures
• details of each foreign university and educational activities
• dates of informative meetings organised by professors in charge of study mobility.
- single competitive announcements expire 1 month after publication.
- students can choose one of the 300 universities with which the University has established a partnership as long as it is in a country other than that of origin.
- every mobility period abroad must have a duration of minimum 3 months and maximum 12 months,
during which period the students will remain enrolled in the university, including payment of taxes and
- the hosting foreign university shall not request payment of any fees or contributions (for attendance,
registrations for examinations, admission, the use of laboratories and libraries) with the exception of any secretariat fees that in some countries can come up to 300 euro.
Enrolment procedures and deadlines
Applications to participate in the competitive announcement shall be submitted online by the deadline, along with the requested documentation, indicating also the 3 destination of preference.
Before participating in Erasmus+, we recommend students to obtain information about the study programmes offered by the foreign universities they wish to indicate as their destination (not more than three), and to participate in informative meetings (specified in the competitive announcements of the single degree courses) organised to guide students in their choice of a hosting foreign university.
After submitting the application, every candidate will be assigned a first score (ERASMUS indicator) based on:
• number of exams passed as foreseen in the study plan (for the year of registration)
• average of the marks obtained
• credits obtained
• any other requirements defined in the single competitive announcements.
A selection is then foreseen that envisages usually an interview with the professors in charge of the programme and, in some cases, even a pre-screening phase based on the evaluation of the curriculum vitae of the candidates.
Moreover, part of the interview can also include a test of fluency in the foreign language (conducted by
language experts) that, for certain destinations, is an essential requirement.
The final outcome of the selection process will be communicated roughly within 45-60 days after the expiry date of the call for the competitive announcements.
