Guide for planning activities under the Erasmus Program – (Guide in Pdf)

The following indications are a guide for planning the activities to be carried out within the Erasmus program, in compliance with the procedures provided by the Erasmus Office of the University of Tor Vergata and that of the host university.

The planning document is the Learning Agreement, which must be agreed with the Erasmus program reference teacher and presented to the Erasmus Office for final approval.

After approval, it will be sent to the Erasmus Office of the host university.

It is advisable to submit the Learning Agreement well in advance of the departure date and to respect the indicated deadline.

The assessment of the credits that will be recognized for the activities planned and worked out at the host university will be carried out during the approval phase of the Learning Agreement before departure.

The recognition of the actual credits will be carried out by the Academic Secretariat of the Course of Studies after receipt of the documentation by the Erasmus Office of Macroarea.

The activities concern:

    1. Participation in courses
    2. Development of activities and elaboration of the final thesis
    3. Internship (abroad in a location indicated in the Erasmus call)

    • OPTIONAL COURSES: to take optional courses, they must not have contents that overlap with the compulsory courses.

If a student chooses courses in the language of the host University (other than English), a certificate of knowledge of the language of the host University may be required.

  1. FINAL THESIS

As for the preparation of the final thesis, the topic and activities must be agreed with the Supervisor of the University of Rome Tor Vergata and the co-supervisor of the host University. The student can plan thesis activities only if he/she has already purchased at least 60 credits.
