  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

  Selection criteria

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

Weighted average

First year Bachelor students who have not yet acquired any credits are assessed on the result of their entry test for admission to the university, as a mark out of thirty.
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 of credits acquired by the student and registered on Uniweb in relation to the credits foreseen by the study plan. For Master students and PhD students the calculation includes the credits of the previous carriers.

For students in their first year of the Bachelor degree without any credits, an mean average of credits of students in the same degree course will be used for the calculation.

Linguistic knowledge

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 in Spanish or French we can only talk 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.

Thesis work

For thesis work, one point will be awarded to students in Master’s degree courses and to PhD students without a scholarship, if they apply for a mobility to complete thesis work and they have submitted the declaration signed by the supervisor (tutor).

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.

  List of successful applicants

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). Priority will be also given to students who have not previously taken part in the Erasmus programme. The final ranking will be approved by a commission of four professors, representing the 4 departments of the School of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (BCA, DAFNAE, MAPS and TESAF).

  • Publication of list of successful students First Call: from 13th February 2020
  • Publication of list of successful students Second Call: from 23rd April 2020

The lists will be published exclusively on the bullet-in board for the International Office/Erasmus at the students’ respective School or Department and 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

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

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

The same procedure described above is forseen 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.

The approval of the study plan is based on the similarity between the courses offered  by the home institution and the ones chosen by the student, available at the host institution. It is possible in most cases, to match a course from your original study plan to an equivalent one offered by the partner university.  Students must keep in mind that their chosen courses abroad must  match to the Italian courses from the same academic year, in which the mobility takes place.

The language courses worth a maximum of 6 credits can be added to the LA, only if the chosen language is the official one spoken in the host country.

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