Duration of the mobility and contributions

The number of financiable months of the mobility and the relative Erasmus Grant payment are determined by the Grant Agreement.

ATTENTION! The effective duration of the mobility is determined by the Attendance Certificate, issued by the Receiving Institution. Please note that this duration can be shorter than that outlined in the Grant Agreement.

It is possible to extend the duration of the mobility up to a maximum total of 12 months. Please note that any extended months will not be financed.

It is also possible to reduce the period of mobility to a minimum of three months, (equal to 90 days).

For students carrying out exam activities, departing in the second semester or postponing the departure from the first to the second semester, the duration of the mobility will be reduced by the International Office to 31st July.

According to the Erasmus+ for studies Programme the calculation of the mobility period is counted ‘in days’ considering every month to have 30 days and so every year to have 360.

Example:

Planned mobility as set by the Grant Agreement: 5 months, equal to 150 days, from 10/10/2019 to 10/03/2020
Mobility carried out based on the Attendance Certificate: from 16/10/2019 to 02/03/2020

Calculation: 15 days for October (from 16th to 30th October)+120 days (entire months of November, December, January, February)+2 days for March (1st and 2nd March), total no. of days in mobility = 137 days.

Payment: 250/30 for 137 days, equal to €1050.33 or 300/30 for the 137 days equal to €1278.66.

Financial Contributions and Benefits

The contributions and economic benefits, which are given always based on the funds available, are as follows:

  Erasmus Grant

The Erasmus Grant is not a complete grant, but rather a contribution for the larger expenses of living abroad.

The Erasmus Grant is paid mostly with funds from the European Commission, based on the destination country:

  • €300.00 monthly (meaning 30 days) for the following destinations: Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, United Kingdom and Sweden.
  • 250.00 monthly (meaning 30 days) for the following destinations: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Estonia, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia (Erasmus+ in Europe call), Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, Hungary
  • €650.00 monthly (30 days)for destinations beyond Europe in the Call 2018/19
  • €700.00 monthly for destinations beyond Europe in the Calls 2019/20 and 2020/21

  Additional Funding

The Additional Funding comes from either the University budget, MIUR or Veneto Region, on the basis of the ranking list, compiled by the Student Services Office for the Regional scholarship, and on the annual income (ISEE value). Payments are made according to annual availability of funds.

For mobilities 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21 the amounts are established in the following tables, available for download. The limit of the ISEE/ISEU amount was raised up to €50,000. For the calculation of merit, the list from the Student Service Office – Benefits Unit will be taken into consideration; it will be updated in February 2019 for mobilities in 2018/19, in February 2020 for mobilities in 2019/20 and in February 2021 for mobilities in 2020/21.

The down-payments will be calculated only on the basis of the ISEE statement while the balance will also take merit into consideration.

The total amount of the payments (by individual income and merit) will be calculated for a maximum period of 10 months.

Students from the second-year "fuori corso" will not receive any additional funding. "Fuori corso" are students who have passed the legal duration for obtaining the qualification.

In the event that the activities carried out abroad are not recognised and registered on Uniweb by:

  • 31st October 2019 for mobilities in 2018/19
  • 31st October 2020 for mobilities in 2019/20
  • 31st October 2021 for mobilities in 2020/21

students will have to reimburse the additional funding already issued and will not receive any balance.

  Travel expenses

Erasmus+ for studies in Europe: flat-rate reimbursement of travel expenses, calculated based on the destinations.

  • 105.00: Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland;
  • 175.00: Croatia, Poland, Czech Repubblic, Slovakia, Hungary;

  • 385.00: Turkey;
  • 420.00: Greenland, Iceland;
  • 595.00: Island of Réunion.

Erasmus+ for studies beyond Europe, travel expenses are calculated on the basis of the distance between the University of Padova and the Receiving Institution. The amounts vary based on the following “kilometre bands” defined by the European Commission. The amounts and kilometre bands for the destinations of the Call 2018/19 are:

  • Between 100 and 499 km: €180.00
  • Between 500 and 1999 km: €275.00
  • Between 2000 and 2999 km: €360.00
  • Between 3000 and 3999 km: €530.00
  • Between 4000 and 7999 km: €820.00
  • Over 8000 km: €1100.00

For the destinations of the Calls 2019/20 and 2020/21 the following amounts and and kilometre bands apply:

  • Between 0 and 99km: €20.00
  • Between 100 and 499km: €180.00
  • Between 500 and 1999km: €275.00
  • Between 2000 and 2999km: €360.00
  • Between 3000 and 3999km: €530.00
  • Between 4000 and 7999km: €820.00
  • 8000km: €1,100.00

The European Commission has an official calculator for the distances between Institutions.

ATTENTION! You must save and send your boarding passes to attain this. The distance of a one-way travel must be used to calculate the amount of the EU grant that will support the round trip.

The payments for the mobility take place according to these timings:

  • down-payment equal to around 70% of the Erasmus Grant, 50% of any Additional Funding and reimbursement of travel expenses: for departures in the first semester it comes in September and October; for departures in the second semester it comes in March and April. Only once the students have uploaded the start of mobility documents (Attendance Certificate and Learning Agreement before the mobility) is it possible to receive any payments;
  • balance of the Erasmus Grant: between July and October (only after having sent the end of mobility documents, having sat the OLS test and having completed the online EU survey)
  • balance of any Additional Funding: between April and December (only after the recognition on Uniweb of the activities carried out abroad)

  Arrangements for payment of the grant

The credit of the Erasmus Grant can only be issued to an Italian current account, of which the student must be the account holder or co-holder. To use a delegate’s (such as a parent) account is not valid.

Normal current accounts can be used, as well as a pre-paid card account, though it must have an IBAN code, which is necessary for the crediting to take place. This type of card is offered by various banks with very low maintenance costs or even free in some cases.

ATTENTION: before booking an appointment to sign the Grant Agreement, you must provide the IBAN code of your current account on Uniweb in the section Didattica > Dati personali > Dati di Rimborso/Bonifico europeo.

Students enrolled in the a.y. 2018/2019 in their first year of a Bachelor’s degree or Single-cycle Master’s degree will have been given a multifunctional badge; they must activate Flash UP for studies. All information is available (in Italian only) in the section "Flash UP for studies" on the following page: http://www.unipd.it/cartaflash

  Modifying the IBAN code

In the event that the IBAN code must be changed after the Grant Agreement has already been signed, namely, during the residence abroad or after the student’s return, it is necessary to change the details on Uniweb and communicate this change to the International Office, using the form attached.
