The mobility grant for the Erasmus+ for Studies in Europe Programme is €250 or €300 monthly based on the destination, while for the destinations beyond Europe it is €700 monthly. These amounts are purely indicative and may be subject to change according to the guidelines of the European Commission on the new Erasmus Programme 2021-2027.

Students are required to independently consult the websites of partner universities to check the academic courses on offer, language prerequisites and, once having accepted the place, inform themselves on the procedures and planned deadlines in place for incoming Erasmus students. To view the list of partner universities and their selection procedures please consult the Mobility Unit Desks.

  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.

For students who in the a.y. 2020/21 are enrolled in their first year of Bachelor’s degrees or single-cycle Master’s degrees (for example, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Law etc.):

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.

It is then necessary to have gained at least 40 credits (registered on Uniweb) before the departure, otherwise the mobility cannot take place.
Students enrolled in Bachelor’s degrees or single-cycle Master’s degrees from the second year on are required to have at least 40 credits registered on Uniweb at the time of the application. Master’s students and PhD candidates automatically satisfy this condition, given that they have already completed at least a Bachelor’s degree.

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 Mobility Unity desk 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 Mobility Unity desk at  Schools/Departments, or that of their Erasmus call.

Mobility places to UK Institutions with which the University of Padua has active agreements are also included in the call for applications. The same rules of the Erasmus+ Programme for the a. y. 2020/21 will be applied to these destinations.
Please pay attention to the UK entry rules regarding visa and health insurance available on the pages of the partner universities or the British government. Costs related to visa, insurance, or other requirements to enter the UK are not covered by the mobility grants.
