Erasmus +

Erasmus + is the new mobility programme promoted by the EU, which has been in force since 1 January 2014, which integrates the 7 previous programmes: Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink, ICI.

With Erasmus +, students can spend a period of time studying abroad, attending courses and taking exams, or preparing their final exam. The study period lasts from 3 to 12 months at a European University or which is part of the Programme and participants, at the end of their course, can validate the didactic activities carried out.

To get an idea, students can consult some of the learning agreements that have already been approved, bearing in mind, however, that these are just some examples and that it is possible to choose and arrange other learning agreements with the RAM.

See some examples of learning agreements that have already been approved.

Furthermore, the Degree Course Council for Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology has adopted criteria relating to student mobility and the official validation of study periods abroad which can be consulted on the dedicated page in the Navigation menu.
