Outgoing Erasmus+ study

Instructions for use

What is

Erasmus+ for the purpose of study is a program that offers the opportunity to study abroad in one of the mobility program's member states and provides a scholarship to successful students to help them make the most of the experience.

To participate

You can enroll in the program if:

  • you are regularly enrolled in UniGe
  • you are enrolled in individual educational activities aimed at admission to Master's degree programs (so-called bridging career)
  • at the time of submission of the application you possess the prerequisites for access established by the foreign location and the individual teaching facilities of UniGe

How long

Your Erasmus can last from 3 to 12 months.

You need to agree with your contact professor on the exact dates of your stay and the courses to be taken. Check the teaching periods and courses offered at the foreign university.

Have you been on Erasmus before?

As a UniGe student, you have the opportunity to carry out one or more Erasmus+ mobilities.

The period comprehensive reserved for mobility is different depending on the course of study you are enrolled in:

  • Cycle I - Bachelor's degree: maximum 12 months (360 days)
  • cycle II - bachelor's/master's degree, master's degree: maximum 12 months (360 days)
  • single-cycle master's degree: maximum 24 months (720 days)
  • cycle III - PhD, postgraduate course, 2nd level master's degree: maximum 12 months (360 days)

Before applying, you should therefore check that the remaining period still available to you for further Erasmus+ mobility is at least 90 days.

For example, if in the same bachelor's degree program you have already done one Erasmus mobility for study purposes for 5 months and one for internship purposes for 4 months (for a total of 9 months), you will be able to apply and do a maximum period of 3 months abroad, regardless of the duration of the grant provided by the announcement.
