Erasmus students will have from 2 to a maximum of 12 month each cycle for their Erasmus formation. Remarkably, some University require a certificate demonstrating the level of student's language competence, which is compulsory for admission. During Erasmus, students will have the possibility to attend courses included in their academic curriculum and integrate their formation with alternative and optional courses that are typical of the University geographical contest (e.g. water-base sport, diving, sailing, trekking, skiing ).
