How to participate

Students, graduating students, Ph.D and Specialization schools’ students who wish to undertake a period of study abroad within the framework of the Erasmus + programme, will find all the information on prerequisites and procedures in the General Call for applications and the Calls by study area.

The two types of Calls for applications are available online at, usually between February and March of each year.??

In particular, to apply for the Erasmus + programme students must:

  • be a national of one of the programme's Partner Countries or
  • be a national of one of the Partner Countries, but be enrolled in a University of Milan degree programme. In this case the student will be allowed to spend her/his Erasmus period of stay in his country of origin only if the selected host University agrees to it.

A careful reading and consultation of the University's General Call for applications and of the Calls by study area will allow students to make a better choice of the period to spend abroad and of the host University.


Attention: new requirements for the Erasmus+ 2018-2019 call for study

In order to apply to the Erasmus+ call, which will be published next month, we require students to have at least an A2 level of the working language used in the institution/s of their choice, in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - CEFR. If you are going to apply to destinations that use less common languages, therefore less known, you are required to have at least an A2 level in English in order to apply.

Students of Foreign Languages and Literatures, European and Extra-European Languages and Literatures, Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication and Languages and Cultures for International Communication and Cooperation are automatically considered in compliance with this requirement for the languages studied in their curricula.

The knowledge of a foreign language may be certified:

  1. with a language certificate proving that you have sufficient knowledge of the working language at the University/ies of your choice;
  2. with a proficiency certificate issued by the Language Service of the University of Milan (SLAM - Servizio Linguistico dell’Ateneo di Milano) when a language certificate is not available;
  3. with a self-certification stating the level of the foreign language/s you need to certify, which will be proved during the selection interview, should you not have either of the above-mentioned certificates.
