Erasmus Students

UPO wholeheartedly promotes the international mobility of students within the LLP Program/Erasmus. We specifically deal with:

  • Outgoing/incoming student’s mobility for studies (SMS)
  • Outgoing/incoming student’s mobility for placement (SMP)

​Our Erasmus and Foreign Students Office coordinates the administrative and organizational aspects of the various activities, by interfacing with the representatives of both the internal structures and foreign universities and the international cooperation. Within the student’s international mobility, the project called 'free mover' is also involved, for both outgoing and incoming students.

The office also offers a service to UE and non-EU students, which aims a qualified support for the documentation required for the registration at our university and for the fulfilment of the formalities, which are necessary in order to stay in Italy.
