During your stay abroad

  • Get the Certificate of Stay signed

Once you arrive at your destination, go to the Erasmus Office of the host University and have the Certificate of Stay signed, which certifies the length of your stay and allows you to quantify the total amount of the Erasmus scholarship for the student.

  • Scan and send the Certificate of Stay to the International Relations and Agreements Office, by writing an e-mail to mobility.out@unimi.it within 10 days of arrival.
During your stay abroad, you may
  • modify the Learning Agreement

  • extend or reduce the mobility period, as authorized by your supervising professor.

Changes to the Learning Agreement

The plan of study indicated in the Learning Agreement may be modified within two months of arriving at the host university, and no later than one month from the start of selected courses or training activities, both in the first and the second semester. 

Changes must be requested from the Erasmus coordinator or at the University of Milan Erasmus Desk and is evaluated within 2 weeks, also by the Erasmus coordinator at the Host Institution. 

Once the request is approved, the student can modify the Learning Agreement online by completing and printing out the new version, which must be signed by the Erasmus coordinators at both universities. 

The document, duly signed as required, must be:

  • scanned

  • saved as a PDF file named after the student and containing the number of the change to the LA (e.g. ROSSI Mario LA2).

  • sent to the email address of the International Relations and Agreements Office: mobility.out@unimi.it

Should the Host university request the compilation of its own Learning Agreement, any changes must always be indicated on both documents.

Changes to the duration of your stay abroad

The Erasmus period abroad must last no less than 3 months and no longer than 12 months, and cannot be extended past 30 September of the academic year to which the call for applications  refers.

Extending or shortening the period of stay abroad may change the minimum number of credits required under the Learning Agreement and therefore modify the amount of the Erasmus grant.

Extension

Requests to extend the stay may be authorized by email at least one month prior to the end of the agreed period of mobility, and must be signed by the Erasmus coordinators of both universities.

Extending the stay does not automatically increase the amount of the Erasmus grant, as this depends on the availability of University funds.

Reduction

Requests to reduce the stay may be authorized at least one month prior to the end of the agreed period of mobility by the University of Milan Erasmus coordinator

Authorization granted by e-mail is sufficient, and the student must notify the International Relations and Agreements Office by writing to: mobility.out@unimi.it.

A reduction in stay may decrease the amount of the Erasmus grant awarded, and partial reimbursement may be requested.
