Call 2022/23

  Partner Universities

We recommend that students carefully read the information offered by partner Universities, paying close attention to the educational courses on offer. Students should also check the language requirements and prerequisites for the courses. The Erasmus coordinator (responsabile di flusso) and/or the head of the degree course or their delegate is available to help students choose the right destination and the right courses. Students must insert these courses into the form “Activity proposal” in the original language of the host university.

Students can find more information about partner universities on the School of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine’s webpage: https://www.agrariamedicinaveterinaria.unipd.it/utilita/scuola/contatti/erasmus > Outgoing students > list of partner universities.

  Submitting the application

Students in the School of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine can choose three destinations, in order of preference. If students do not have a second or third choice, they are free to choose only one or two destinations.

Fill in the online application form on Uniweb and follow the instructions.

  Selection criteria

The list of successful applicants is based on the following criteria:

Weighted average

The weighted average for students of master degrees includes the result of the Bachelor degree.

For PhD students the result of the Master degree is included in the calculation.

Credits

The credits are assessed in relation to the official study plan. The calculation is based on the number of credits acquired by the student and registered on Uniweb in relation to the credits foreseen by the study plan.

Linguistic competences

The level of language competence is assessed on the basis of a certificate or a registered exam in the student’s career:

1 point for B1 level and 2 points for B2 level of language competence based on the European Framework. The points can be awarded only if the certification refers to the language of instruction at the host university (if students are choosing lectures held in other languages than English, we can only take into account certifications of these languages).

Students enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree course that is taught in English will receive 2 points if they choose lectures in English at the host university.

If students have taken a foreign exam, a copy of the certificate can be used as proof of their language proficiency and two points can be awarded. The official certifications and their conversion is available on the webpage: https://cla.unipd.it/test-linguistici/certificazioni/

Thesis work

1 point will be awarded to students, who declare to intend a study period abroad for “research/final project”. Students have to provide the signed declaration of the thesis supervisor or the academic coordinator (responsabile di flusso)  (Attachment 1 of the Erasmus application)

Interview

In cases of students with the same number of total points, the Academic Coordinator (responsabile di flusso) will organize an interview to choose the most motivated candidate. For students who apply for destinations outside Europe the interview is mandatory.

  List of successful applicants

Priority will be given to students who have not previously taken part in the Erasmus programme. Students who are enrolled in degree courses which belong to the Erasmus bilateral agreement have priority over students who are enrolled in different degree courses (see list of partner universities).

The final ranking will be approved by a commission of four professors, representing the 4 departments of the School of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine (BCA, DAFNAE, MAPS and TESAF).

  • Publication of list of successful students First Call: from 10th February 2022
  • Publication of list of successful students Second Call: from 28th April 2022

The lists of successful students will be published exclusively on the Erasmus+ for Studies page. These will be the only methods of publication.

There will be no personal communications, neither written nor by telephone.

Successful students must accept their place according to the formats and timings indicated on the page Accept Erasmus Place.

  Learning Agreement and recognition of the activities carried out abroad

Before Mobility

Students must fill in the Learning Agreement (LA) on Uniweb before their departure. The LA must include the online links to the programmes of the courses to be attended abroad.

Students can choose to insert in the Learning Agreement courses, which substitute core courses of their study plan, optional courses or free electives. Annex 3 of each degree course gives information about the course structures:  https://en.didattica.unipd.it/.

If students want to substitute courses from their study plan the course content should be similar to the courses offered by the host institution. In case of study programmes with optional courses, it might be necessary to change first the study plan in Padova and then proceed with the compilation of the Learning Agreement. 

Elective courses do not need to match with the courses of the study plan. The students will have to change the study plan after the mobility period.

The approval of the Learning Agreement is based on the similarity between the courses of the study plan of the student and the ones available at the host institution.

Students must keep in mind that their chosen courses abroad must match to the courses in Padova from thesame semester, in which the mobility takes place.

Only full exams and courses can be recognised. Exams and courses not fully completed will not be taken into consideration in the recognition.

Please follow the instructions on the webpage of the Projects and Partnership Office about submitting and changing the Learning Agreement.

The Learning Agreement will be approved by the Programme coordinator or a professor in charge as Erasmus delegate. You find the list on the webpage.

Once the LA has been approved on Uniweb, the student will have to send it to the Receiving Institution for their final approval.

 

During Mobility

The same procedure described above is foreseen if the student wants to change their Learning Agreement. The student is allowed to change it only once per semester and no later than 15 days from the starting date of the classes at the host university. It is highly recommended to keep a copy of any documentation.

For changes of the Learning Agreement please follow the instructions on the webpage: https://www.unipd.it/en/during-mobility-erasmus-out


After Mobility

See: https://www.unipd.it/en/after-mobility-erasmus-out.

The Transcript of Records and the Evaluation report for thesis/internship should be sent by e-mail from the Host Institution directly to erasmus@unipd.it.

The Mobility Desk of the School will send the certified copy of the transcript to the student. The student has to upload it inside the Uniweb account. See: Instructions for Completing the Learning Agreement< in Uniweb.

The Programme coordinator or Erasmus delegate of the degree programme will prepare the registration and the conversion of grades.
The grades will be registered in the Uniweb booklet.

Students have to insert free choice exams into the study plan.

The registration of activities carried out abroad must be completed according to the last Learning Agreement approved on Uniweb and the Transcript of Records issued by the Partner University.

For the conversion of foreign credits to Italian credits (out of thirty) according to European rules, consult the conversion of the grades and ECTS table.
