Erasmus+  is the new EU programme that replaces and completes the Lifelong Learning Programme LLP until 2020.  For more than 25 years, students, graduating students, doctoral students and specialisation students have enjoyed study and training experience abroad with LLP, courses, exams, theses, research, laboratory and clinical experience  in over 300 different European partner universities with subsequent recognition of the activity done as part of the student’s academic career.  Students can improve the knowledge of a foreign language and promote the development of the European society through study and training in intercultural contexts as the main aims of the programme.  With Erasmus+ there are also new possibilities:

  • study and placement periods abroad for a maximum of 12 months during a  study cycle (first and second cycle) and 24 months for single cycle programmes
  • mobility for placement of new graduates (within 12 months from their graduation);
  • mobility towards extra-EU countries (limited places, most being assigned to incoming students).

During the mobility abroad, students remain enrolled at the University of Milan and do not have to pay any tuitions or fees to the host university, except for possible secretarial costs.  The general requirements and the application procedure are indicated in the University's call for applications.  Specific requirements for courses, study grants and selection procedures are available online in the Calls for application by study area  together with the general announcement, published every year between February and March.  Applications are submitted online through the specific Erasmus Application.
