Erasmus incoming students

For nearly 30 years, the EU has funded the Erasmus programme, which has enabled over three million European students to spend part of their studies at another higher education institution or with an organisation in Europe. Erasmus+ brings such opportunities to students, staff, trainees, teachers. Erasmus+ is a European Union funded programme, which encourages students in higher education to live this wonderful experience in an even wider context. We are able to take part in this programme through the successful renewal of our Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.

Every year Unimore welcomes over 250 students from partner institutions. You can study with us as part of the Erasmus Exchange Programme if your Home University has an Erasmus Bilateral Agreement with Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia, in the subject which you wish to study. The length of study can be up to one year and it depends on your university's agreement with Unimore.
