The Erasmus+ Traineeship programme allows enrolled students who are registered in a higher education institution to undertake a professional experience in another country. In the framework of the Erasmus + programme you can spend between 2 months to a full Academic year abroad for traineeship purposes. The mobility is carried out within the framework of prior “inter-institutional agreements” between the sending and the receiving institution, both of which must be holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (if located in a Programme country). The same student may participate in more than one mobility periods up to a maximum of 12 months for each cycle of study, regardless of the number and type of mobility activities.

How to participate?
Individuals seeking to participate should apply for the Call for Proposals issued by their University and can usually indicate one or more preferences regarding their University of choice.
You can check if your University is one of our partners within the Erasmus+ programme visiting this link.
It is highly recommended that incoming students possess at least a basic knowledge of the Italian language before coming to our University.
Although students are strongly encouraged to take an Italian language course in September or February before the beginning of each semester, a formal language certification is not required. A free Italian Language course will be offered by the Università degli Studi di Perugia, consisting of 60 hours to be completed in 3 weeks (at the beginning of September for 1st Semester and Full-year students and at the beginning of February for 2nd Semester students). The course is aimed at helping students reach a lower-intermediate level of Italian and will be held at the University Linguistic Centre (CLA).
For this course students will receive a total of 4 ECTS per year regardless of how many additional Italian language courses they attend. Please note that these credits will only be allotted if the student has, during his/her stay, dutifully attended at least 75% of the course hours.
After you are selected you must (directly or through your home University) send us an application email briefly explaining your motivations, along with your resume (curriculum vitae) and signed (both by you and the person in charge at your University) Learning Agreement proposal.
Should you be accepted we will return the Accommodation form (ECTS Guide), the Italian Language course application form as well as the Learning Agreement to you, once it is approved and signed by the Responsible person at our University. You will need to fill out and sign the Accommodation and Language Course forms and send them back to us as soon as possible.
