INCOMING EXCHANGE STUDENTS FOR STUDIES
ERASMUS+ SMS - Student Mobility for Studies
Mobility for Study under the Erasmus+ Programme (SMS) has a duration between 2 and 12 months. The Mobility Period may be complemented with a traineeship period. In the case of blended mobility, the minimum physical mobility duration period is 2 months.
ERASMUS+ ICM - International Credit Mobility - Mobility between programme and Partner Countries
International Credit Mobility (ICM) for Studies under the Erasmus+ Programme allows Partner Countries students to carry out Mobility Periods at the University of Parma. ICM mobility is active only in presence of collaborative projects between the EU and the non-EU partner institution(s). The details on this type of mobility may vary based on the Academic Year and the precise provisions of each partnership.
OVERWORLD Programme - Mobility for Study (exchange students from non-EU partner institutions)
Students enrolled at non-EU partner institutions having a bilateral (non-Erasmus+) agreement with the University of Parma may spend an exchange period at the University of Parma. Mobility may have a duration between 3 and 12 months.
Mobility in the framework of Double Degree Programmes
Participating in a Double Degree programme is a high-grade study opportunity. Upon successful completion of the agreed study plans, the selected students will be awarded both the degree issued by their Home University and the corresponding degree issued by the University of Parma. The attendance of Double Degree programmes may happen in the framework of both the Erasmus+ SMS and the Overworld programmes. A full list of Double Degree programmes currently active at the University of Parma and the respective Partner Institution is available HERE.
The Study or Traineeship exchange period may be completed in different ways, according to personal, institutional or circumstantial conditions. The University of Parma encourages, supports and fosters the following mobility structures:
- Physical Mobility: physical presence at the University of Parma for the entire duration of the exchange period;
- Online Mobility: attendance of courses in virtual mode, without travelling from the Home Country to Parma;
- Blended Mobility: a mix between a Physical and Online Mobility; the student may choose to alternate between physical and online mobility, depending on personal preferences and possible mitigating factors.
Some limitations may be in place regarding the admissible types of mobility depending on the specific objectives of the exchange, as well as the provisions of the Mobility Programme under which the exchange is carried out.
