The following info concerns the Erasmus+ programme, but is applicable also for other opportunities.

When to leave and where to go

In order for your mobility experience abroad to be truly meaningful, we suggest that you:

  • plan your departure during your second year of study;
  • preferably (though not necessarily) follow courses abroad that can be included as “optional” course units in your study plan, or carry out activities related to your Master thesis.

For all information about Erasmus+ mobility opportunities and procedures, please visit the following page:

Learning Agreement approval

The Learning Agreement proposal, drawn up by the student with the Mobility Co-ordinator's suggestions, must include courses for approximately 30 ECTS per semester abroad, or thesis activities.

In case of thesis abroad only: complete the procedure on Uniweb.
In case of courses taken abroad: well in advance of the University deadlines, send an e-mail to the President of the Degree Programme, Prof. Alessandro Martucci (Cc Prof. Lucia Nicola, in charge of the Erasmus+ procedures), with the subject "LA proposal Surname Name", indicating the courses you intend to take abroad and those you would like to replace in Padua.
If necessary, make an appointment with the President of the Degree Programme or the person in charge of the Erasmus+ procedures to check its consistency with your educational pathway. After this interview, complete the LA submission procedure in Uniweb.
If it is subsequently necessary to change your LA during your stay abroad, repeat the same procedure.
It is good practice to indicate schematically and completely what the changes are with respect to the already approved LA and why you opted for them.
Any e-mail communication subsequent to the first one should always quote the previous e-mail messages, so that the reader can immediately reconstruct all the communications that have already taken place (even after some time). Therefore, always use the REPLY function for all the e-mails you send after the first one.

Upon your return to Italy

The activities carried out abroad, based on your most recently approved Learning Agreement and the Transcript of Records, will be recorded by the person in charge of the Erasmus+ procedures or the President of the Degree Programme upon the student's request.
For the details of the procedures, please visit the following page:

The study plan must comply with the latest approved learning agreement. If the deadlines for submitting the study plan are compatible with the return date, it is advisable to submit it after your return from your stay abroad.

Erasmus+ students’ study plans are uploaded onto Uniweb by the Student Office only when the credits obtained abroad are registered or, in some cases, when the degree application is submitted: it is therefore normal that the final study plan is not immediately visible on Uniweb.
