Erasmus+ Mobility Programme

EU flag-Erasmus+_vect_POS

The European University Institute gladly participates to the Erasmus+ Mobility Programme!

Promoted by the European Union, Erasmus+ Mobility Programme allows researchers exchanges between universities within Erasmus+ Programme countries (please see complete list below).

The receiving institution must hold the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education and have an inter-institutional agreement with the EUI.

The period of study abroad must be relevant for your degree-related learning and personal development needs, and be part of the study programme that you are following. The duration of the mobility is for a minimum of three (3) to a maximum of twelve (12) months.

More information can also be found on the Erasmus+ Italian National Agency.

Eligible Countries

  • The European Union’s 27 Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom[1];
  • European Economic Area: Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway;
  • EU Applicant Countries: Turkey and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

NB: Please note that this list is the official list of Programme Countries provided by the European Commission. This does not mean that the EUI has Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreements with universities in all the above-mentioned countries and that you will be able to go on an exchange in any of them.

If you are selected for an Erasmus+ Mobility, you will have to complete and sign PRIOR to your departure the Mobility and Learning Agreements.

IMPORTANT: Failure to return or sign on time the Erasmus+ documentation may delay the payment of your Erasmus+ Mobility Grant.


Financial Support

You may receive an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to your travel and subsistence costs. It may vary according to differences in living costs between your country and the destination country, the number of students applying for a grant, the distance between countries and the availability of other grants.

The grant will be paid in two instalments: a pre-financing of 80% before the start of your mobility; and the remaining 20% at the end of the mobility period once you have filled the Erasmus+ automatically generated survey and provided the EUI International Mobility Officer with a signed Certificate of Attendance from the host institution. The payments of the mobility grant are made by bank transfer.
