Studying abroad

The University of Parma offers all students various opportunities to foster the development of a real international dimension to university study. From exchanges in Europe through the Erasmus Plus Program and SMT, to non-European mobility with the Overworld Program.

International Student Mobility - Agreements, Assistance and Procedures

The University of Parma is part of an exchange network of professors and students that, through numerous agreements at EU and non-EU level, allows study periods abroad and/or internship activities, enabling students to gain training experience abroad. Over the years, the numerous academic contacts that have developed have allowed for the creation of a network of international collaborations that today sees the presence of partnerships with Universities and Research Organisations from all over the world, resulting in the recognition of the University of Parma on the international academic scene.

The intense activity aimed at improving internationalisation took the form of increased training opportunities, the consolidation of exchange activities under the Erasmus+ programme and the expansion of exchange opportunities under the Overworld University Programme.

In order to coordinate the central activity of the Internationalisation Unit with that at departmental level, International Mobility Commissions have been established in each department.

The Erasmus+ programme provides for the allocation of grants for this particular type of exchange.  The Department's internationalisation contacts are available to inform and support applications from students interested in this type of internationalisation experience. Student assistance for international mobility is coordinated by the Department's International Mobility Committee.
