International Mobility

Humanitas University aims to prepare students to face the challenging reality of a European society that, while still strongly anchored to its traditions, is undergoing the process of globalization. We strongly encourage our students and staff to participate to our mobility programs, including the virtual exchanges.
*In view of the emergency situation related to COVID-19, the international internships are suspended for the whole 2020.
The decision has been taken to protect everyone’s health and to enable doctors and nurses to dedicate themselves entirely to patient care and assistance.

Humanitas University exchange programs provide students with an opportunity to study in a different country and environment experiencing the history and culture of another country, as well as meeting new friends to enrich their personal development. International exchange programs are also effective to challenge students to develop a global perspective.

Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the EU programme that allows students to perform courses, exams, theses, research, laboratory and clinical experience in European partner universities with subsequent academic recognition of the activities in the student’s career. The main aim of the programme is to give students the opportunity to improve the knowledge of a foreign language and promote the development of the European society through studying and training in an intercultural context.

Costs

During the mobility abroad, students remain enrolled at their University and do not have to pay any tuitions or fees to the host university (except for possible secretarial costs). In order to finance the period of stay abroad within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, the European Union assigns a study grant to each selected candidate. Although it does not cover all expenses, it can help cover additional costs such as travel expenses or living expenses in the host country.

The amount of the monthly installment of the EU grant is established yearly by the Erasmus+ National Agency. Special contributions for disabled persons may also be assigned on ad-hoc national funds.
