Erasmus+  is the new EU programme that replaces and completes the Lifelong Learning Programme LLP until 2020. For more than 30 years students, graduating students, doctoral students and specialising students have enjoyed study and training experience abroad with Erasmus, attending courses, exams, doing research for their thesis, laboratory and clinical activities in over 300 different European partner universities with the recognition of the activity abroad as part of students' academic career. Students can improve the knowledge of a foreign language and promote the development of the European society through studing and training in intercultural contexts as main goals of the programme. With Erasmus+ there are new possibilities:

  • study and traineeship periods abroad for a maximum of 12 months for study cycle (first and second cycle) and 24 months for single-cycle programmes;
  • mobility for traineeship of recent graduates (within 12 months from graduation);
  • mobility to extra-EU countries (limited places, mostly assigned to incoming students)

During the mobility abroad, students are still enrolled at the University of Milan and do not have to pay any tuition fees to the host university, with the exeption of potential secretarial costs. The general requirements and the application procedure are specified in the University's call for applications, published around January every year. Specific requirements for courses and selection procedures are available online in the sections devided by study areas. Applications must be submitted online through the Erasmus Application page.
