Outgoing Erasmus+ study

Through Erasmus+, UniGe offers you the choice of a study or internship experience in one of the many countries participating in the mobility program and provides financial support to help you make the most of this experience.

Erasmus+ mobility allows you:

  • a university career enriched by a quality experience
  • an in-depth knowledge of a different European reality
  • the full recognition of CFUs acquired by taking exams or doing thesis research at the partner location

Before returning to Italy, remember:

  • get the Attestation of Attendance (in the Important Documents section of this page) issued by the foreign University, which must be sent by email to the International Mobility Department of the University of Genoa directly from the offices of the University hosting you - or deliver it yourself upon your return, in original, to the International Mobility Department of UniGe, Piazza della Nunziata 6 - second floor
  • .
  • pick up your Transcript of Records (ToR) with the list of exams taken and the relative grades and bring it with you. In the event that it is not yet ready, make arrangements with the foreign university to have it sent to you by e-mail in pdf format or by other means.
  • The ToR is a copy of the ToR.


Acceptance must be made via the online services.

It is not obligatory, but we recommend that you accept the scholarship in full. After verifying the training offer of the host location, you can sign the agreement to receive the scholarship for a lower number of months, if necessary.

Yes, as long as the two periods do not overlap. However, the sum of the two mobility periods must not exceed the maximum 12 months allowed per academic year.

Yes. If the period abroad will still take place in the planned semester, you will have to communicate the new date to the International Mobility Office and to the relevant School/Department office. If the mobility will take place in a different semester, we advise you to check the validity of the Learning Agreement and Application Form that may have already been completed.

The committees, while taking into account the preferences expressed in the application, will assign you the seat deemed most appropriate on the basis of the educational offer and your skills (including language skills).

No, the assigned seat is definitive. The committee may only consider a change of assignment:

  • in the event of major changes in the course offer that do not allow you to carry out your teaching activities
  • in the case of refusal of the host establishment

School/Department Erasmus desks send your name to partner universities. You must:

  1. complete the application procedures on the website of the host University
  2. verify the Application Form deadlines
  3. verify the deadlines for sending the Learning Agreement and any other procedures to be completed prior to departure

You will need to check with the Embassies/Consulates of the country of destination to see if an entry visa is required.

If you are a non-EU student, you must have an Italian residence permit valid for the duration of your mobility. The SASS Office provides assistance with both visa applications and renewal of residence permits.

You will have to select the courses you are interested in according to the course offerings of your assigned location and then enter them into the Learning Agreement with the help of the Erasmus Desk.

The examinations you take abroad, certified by the host institution in the Transcript of Records, will be recognised when you return to Italy.
