Study Abroad Information

With the Erasmus+ programme for study, IULM students can spend one or two semesters of their mobility at a European university that holds an ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) with which IULM has signed a bilateral agreement and has received a Community scholarship.

During their mobility the Erasmus student can take exams, carry out thesis research or a period of "combined mobility" study + internship (provided that the internship is provided for in the IULM university curriculum) with the guarantee that the activities agreed and then acquired abroad are recognized upon return through credit transfer and conversion of marks.

An Erasmus student may receive a monthly Community scholarship as a 'flat-rate contribution to mobility costs' or benefit only from Erasmus status (without a scholarship). The student is required to pay the IULM tuition fees but no contribution is due to the host university.
