Outgoing Erasmus+ study
What is it
Erasmus+ for study is a programme that offers the possibility of studying abroad in one of the participating states in the mobility programme and provides a grant to eligible students to help them make the most of the experience.
You are eligible to apply if:
- you are regularly enrolled at the Università di Genova
- you are enrolled for single courses leading to admission to master’s degree courses (known as a carriera ponte)
- you fulfil the admission prerequisites for each exchange as established by the foreign Institution and by the individual departments of UniGe at the time the application is submitted
You can participate even if you are a UniGe graduate, but in this case you must have submitted your application before graduating and the mobility must be undertaken within 12 months after the graduation date.
How long can you stay?
Your Erasmus may last from 3 to 12 months.
Get in contact with your Internationalisation Tutor to set the exact dates of your stay and the classes you will take. Make sure to check the teaching periods and all the available courses.
Have you had previous Erasmus mobility experiences?
As a UniGe student, you have the opportunity to undertake one or more Erasmus+ mobility.
The total period reserved for mobility is different according to the study cycle you are enrolled in:
- I cycle - Bachelor's degree: 12 months maximum (360 days)
- II cycle - Master's degree, 1st level Master: 12 months maximum (360 days)
- Master's degree (5/6 years): 24 months maximum (720 days)
- III cycle - Ph.D., specialization course, 2nd level master: 12 months maximum (360 days)
Before applying, you have to check that the residual amount of time remaining for another Erasmus+ mobility is at least 90 days.
For example, if you have already undertaken, in the same study cycle (Bachelor's degree), an Erasmus mobility of 5 months for study purposes and of 4 months for traineeship purposes (for a total of 9 months), you are allowed to apply and spend a maximum period of 3 months abroad, independently of the duration of the scholarship in the call.
Check the Erasmus manifesto in the Important documents section of this page: you may find the list of partner institutions.
The assignment of the destination is the exclusive competence of the Selection Committees. The preferences expressed by you are purely indicative.
The Selection Committee may assign you to a different location from the ones indicated in your application if:
- considered more appropriate
- the positions available are already assigned to candidates ahead of you in the ranking
- the period linked to the locations you have chosen is not compatible with the months you may have already spent in previous Erasmus mobility experiences
Verify your language skills
If you want to apply to the call and you need a certificate of your level of knowledge of the foreign language(s), you can contact the Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche - ex CLAT (Language Skills Development Sector).
You can take the English test and 2 other languages, depending on the location of your interest (you can choose between French, German, Spanish and Portuguese) and booking the tests, according to the deadlines indicated on the Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche website, on the Aulaweb platform.
Moreover, the Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche (ex CLAT) will provide to examine the language certifications by certifying authorities. To obtain the accreditation of certifications, please upload your files in AulaWeb according to the deadlines indicated on the website of the Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche (ex CLAT).
Obtain this language certification is useful because the supply of the foreign structures is considerably increased and also because with it you can give uniformed elements to commissions to examine your language knowledge.
The test’s results are preferential elements of evaluation to allocate nominees in the ranking. The Selection Committee may apply a reduction in the score if you:
- haven’t taken the tests provided by the Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche (ex CLAT)
- haven’t received a declaration in lieu about your foreign language level by the Settore Sviluppo Competenze Linguistiche (ex CLAT)
- haven’t attached any certification to your application
