A concise overview of ERASMUS is available on the B.A. programme site, on the student bulletin board.
These reciprocal agreements give students and teachers access to a year abroad, an exchange agreement between University of Milan and the universities of many countries including: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, the Low Countries, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Hungary.
A list of specific universities encompassed by the agreement for history undergraduates can be consulted in appendix A: https://www.unimi.it/sites/default/files/2020-02/ALLEGATO%20A_%202020-2….
With Erasmus+ 2020-21 University of Milan also assigns study periods in Switzerland based on bilateral agreements with Swiss universities under the SEMP - Swiss European Mobility Programme.
History students can complete study periods ranging from a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 12 months during the three years of the programme, at one of the university's partner institutions. Average study periods abroad last 5-6 months. Study abroad (course attendance, exams, any thesis research work) is accredited on students' return with a number of study credits which take account of the activities completed abroad and the length of the period of time spent there. The related study programme, called a Learning Agreement, is agreed on departure on the basis of courses, exams and activities at the partner university decided by students in accordance with their Italian study plans. Careful choice by the teaching staff responsible in identifying a wide ranging and specific correspondence between the University of Milan's educational programme and that of its partner universities enables students to take full advantage of their studies abroad and acquire the credits they need to complete their Italian studies. The study sectors which can be developed are essentially historical but credits in other humanities disciplines can also potentially be acquired.
This B.A. has a permanent internationalisation via ERASMUS co-ordinator (Prof. Michela Minesso). Every year, specific meetings for B.A. history students leaving for periods abroad are organised to supply them with the information they need on the various institutions available and useful contact numbers. The History Department also has international research and teaching partnerships with institutions such as Lomonosov University in Moscow. In such cases specific study plans are agreed with the co-ordinator and the work done is recognised in accordance with the criteria listed above.
The History Department is also active in ERASMUS Plus-Placement which now provides for international exchange for new graduates (within 12 months of graduation), too, and information on the programmes which can be applied for is available on the website. The department works to identify international partners (archives, libraries, publishing houses, cultural institutions and universities) for internships designed to provide professional training.
