It is recommended that students consult the webpages of the partner institutions, paying particular attention to the academic courses on offer, to the language requirements and deadlines.

  Application process

Students of the School of Human and Social Sciences and Cultural Heritage may choose up to two destinations in order of priority (1, 2).
The application must be submitted in Uniweb.
For the application procedure and related forms, see the page Apply to Erasmus.

The application must contain the mandatory attachments:

This attachment must NOT be signed by any professor. In case you are applying for more than one destination, you must indicate a proposal of activities for each destination according to the order of priority indicated.

  • ONLY in case you want to do (also) thesis research: Attachment 1a - this attachment must be signed either by the thesis supervisor at the University of Padova or by the academic coordinator. For Phd students the document must be signed by their tutor. In case two destinations are chosen: if the professor who signs the document is the same for both destinations chosen, both destinations must be clearly indicated; if the professors who signs is different, one document per destinations should be filled in and signed.

In you intend to do internship activities, it is mandatory to include also study activities (attendance of courses, seminars, exams) and you must fill in and attach both Attachment 1 and Attachment 1a.

If you intend to carry out study activities (courses, seminars, exams) and also research thesis activity, it is necessary to fill in and attach both Attachment 1 and Attachment 1a.

The letter for thesis and/or internship (Attachment 1 a) can be replaced by the email of the professor that authorizes the activity specifying the last name and first name of the student and the destination(s). The email must be attached in PDF format.

Attention: not all host universities accept exchange students for thesis research (or internship). Candidates are required to verify this condition with the academic coordinator and the host university before applying.

2) Cover letter: max. 1 page per destination, written in Italian (or in English in case of international students).

Students enrolled in the third year of a bachelor degree program can apply to go on mobility in the first year of their master, but only if they intend to enroll in a master's program of the School.

In case they will have to indicate in the appropriate box of Attachment 1 the name of the Master program in which they intend to enroll and choose the destinations according to the future Master program of interest.

It is recommended to attend the information meetings or consult the information materials on the Moodle page for further details on how to fill out the attachments and the application.
