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 from the European Commission

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.

For 2022/23 mobilities the amounts are allocated as follows:

  • €350.00 monthly/strong (meaning 30 days) for Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden
  • €300.00 monthly (meaning 30 days) for Austria, Cyprus, France, Greece, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom.
  • €250.00 monthly (meaning 30 days) for Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, Belgium.
  • €700.00 monthly (meaning 30 days) for destinations beyond Europe

  Additional Funding from MUR or other funds

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.

The amounts of the additional funding to the Erasmus grant for 2022/23 mobilities are not yet confirmed and may be subject to changes compared to the 2021/22 academic year.

In order to benefit from the additional funding, international students (with household living abroad and/or with income earned abroad) awarded with a mobility place for the a.y. 2021/22 have to complete both of the following requirements:

  1. apply for the ISEE certificate to be issued electronically directly to INPS or to a Tax Assistance Centre (CAF) or other competent authorities, specifying that the ISEE is required for the right to university study. The ISEE is expected to be issued between 12 and 15 working days from the time of submission of the Dichiarazione Sostitutiva Unica (DSU).
    International students (with household living abroad and/or with income earned abroad) are required to upload the documents for the calculation of the ISEE Parificato on the portal of the appropriate CAF (Centro di Assistenza Fiscale), in agreement with the University. All information on the documents requested for the calculation are constantly updated and available in the Guide on the page www.unipd.it/en/isee.
    This procedure must be completed by 22 July 2022. However, for 2022/23 mobilities, considering the remarkable difficulties in obtaining the necessary documents, the deadline for international students is extended to 30 November 2022.
    Students with ISEE with omissions/discrepancy, not remedied by the deadline above will not be considered eligible for the additional funding to the Erasmus/SEMP grant. Students will be funded during the mobility only after having completed the whole procedure
  2. fill in and confirm the Application for Benefits on Uniweb by 4 August 2022 to authorize the University to acquire the indicator directly from INPS, or from the partner CAF in case of ISEE Parificato. The online procedure is avaiable in your reserved area on Uniweb under "Right to university studies, disability disclosure, summer courses".  The deadline applies to all students, including those who are required to submit ISEE Parificato. It is possible to fill in the Application for Benefits even if the ISEE Parificato certificate has not yet been obtained.

All amounts are established in the following tables, available for download. The limit of the ISEE/ISEU amount 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 2022 for mobilities in 2021/22 and in February 2023 for mobilities in 2022/23.

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.

Only students regularly enrolled not "beyond the normal duration of their course of study, increased by one year" are eligible for additional fundings. For the purposes of calculation, the first year of enrolment is taken into consideration, regardless of any changes in the “ordinamento” (year of degree course structure), changes in the degree course (without having withdrawn from studies) or other cases, and the years indicated on Uniweb as "ripetenti" (repeating years) are also counted. Please note that what is shown on the Uniweb is not relevant for the purposes of calculation.

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

  • 31st October 2021 for mobilities in 2020/21
  • 31st October 2022 for mobilities in 2021/22
  • 31st October 2023 for mobilities in 2022/23

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

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

  • down-payment equal to around 70% of the Erasmus Grant and 50% of any Additional Funding: 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: https://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.
