International Mobility and Network



Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport for 2014-2020.
The programme gives to students the opportunity to spend abroad a period of time up to twelve months for each study cycle (twenty-four months for the single cycle Degree in Law), receiving financial support to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study or training period abroad. The Programme has two components:

1) Erasmus+ Study allows students to complete abroad part of their studies. The mobility is carried out in the framework of agreements between the University of Parma and Universities of eligible countries. The Department gives full academic recognition for satisfactorily completed activities (classes, exams and research) during the mobility period as agreed in the Learning Agreement, by using ECTS credits.

The programme also allows students from partner universities to follow classes taught at the Department, to sit the exams and to obtain full recognition of these activities by their home institutions.

2) Erasmus+ Placement gives students the opportunity to do a traineeship abroad. Receiving organisations for traineeships can be any public or private organisations.
