  Open Arqus Mobility

According to the list of successful students, eligible students who have not been assigned a place in the first Call are offered the chance to spend a mobility period at Arqus partner institutions.

  Who can participate?

Students regularly enrolled at the Università di Padova in Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degrees, single-cycle Master’s degrees,  Doctoral degrees and in Specialisation Schools can participate in the Erasmus+ for studies Programme.

It is necessary to be regularly enrolled and up to date with the payment of fees at the time of submission of the application, before departing and during the entire mobility abroad.

Furthermore, students enrolled in Bachelor’s degrees or single-cycle Master’s degrees from the second year on are required to have acheived at least 40 credits at the time of submission. All other students  automatically satisfy this condition, given that they have already completed at least a Bachelor’s degree.

For students who in the a.y. 2019/20 are enrolled in their first year of Bachelor’s degrees or single-cycle Master’s degrees (for example, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Law etc.):

  1. for the first call (deadline: 15/01/2020 1.00 pm): all first-year students can apply, unless there are specific restrictions outlined by their School or Department
  2. for the second call (deadline: 01/04/2020 1.00 pm): it is necessary to have achieved at least 15 credits (registered on Uniweb) at the time of application, unless there are specific restrictions outlined by their School or Department.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: given the exceptional situation related to the coronavirus emergency that prevented the regular examination period to be held, the criteria for the first call also apply for the second call

For all first-year students it is then necessary to have gained at least 40 credits (registered on Uniweb) before the departure, without which the mobility cannot take place.

Students must follow the requisites of participation outlined in the call, as well as the criteria given by Schools and Departments.

Students with disabilities or learning disabilities can refer to Student Service Office - Inclusion Unit.

  Choice of destinations and Selection Criteria of Schools and Departments

As well as the general rules that apply to the Call, students should refer to the International Office/Erasmus at Schools/Departments webpage for specific criteria as well as the list of available destinations.

ATTENTION: in choosing the destination it is recommended that students carefully inspect the academic courses on offer at the Receiving Institution and consider their compatibility with their own study plan, language prerequisites, deadlines for the application form and the eventual entry and residency requirements of the country in question; often, in fact, these issues can prevent the departure.

Students of second-cycle degrees that choose to sit exams at Spanish universities can only choose courses provided by the "Titulos de grado", namely, inside of Spanish faculties.

Courses provided by "Institutos de estudio de postgrado" (IEP) are not permitted, unless students are indicated otherwise by their respective Academic Coordinator or their International Office/Erasmus at Schools/Departments, or that of their Erasmus call.
