Study abroad

Erasmus+ is the programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe.

The mobility period can involve different activities and it can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months. During the period abroad the students will be supported by financial contributions to help with the expenses abroad during the mobility period.  

Students can benefit from Erasmus programmes multiple times, but the overall mobility period cannot exceed 12 months within one study cycle (e.g., Bachelor, Master).

This programme is mainly dedicated to attend courses and take exams. The activity completed abroad will be recognized by the University of Pavia upon return and on the basis of the Learning Agreement stipulated before the mobility period.

Some activities related to the thesis research and work can be also included if approved by both the home and the host university.

Host organizations where the trainee can carry out the activities can be any public or private organization, a public or private company, a public corporation, a research institution, a non-profit organization, a higher education institute (see the Call for the complete list of host organizations).
