Grants available

The ICM contribution entails a monthly grant for students and a daily grant for academic staff, plus a travel contribution with amount varying according to the geographic distance between UniTrento and the partner university. For more information about number of grants available and selection procedures interested candidates can contact their university international office.

Students grants

Grants are meant to finance a mobility period for study or research purposes of maximum 4 to 6 months for UD, MA and PhD students. The grant amount is equal to 850 euro/month plus travel contribution.

Faculty grants

Faculty mobility has to be for teaching purposes. Grants are meant to finance a mobility period of 10 days, entailing 10 hours of teaching at UniTrento. The grant amount is equal to 140 euro/day plus travel contribution.

Mobility period and nomination deadlines


Students coming for courses attendance in the spring semester 2017 (February intake) will have to be nominated online by their home university by October, 31st 2016. Students coming for courses attendance in the fall semester 2017 (starting in Sept. 2017) will have to be nominated online by their home university by May, 31st 2017. The list of courses available to international students can be found here.

Students coming for research purposes will have to be nominated using the same online tool at least 3 months before their arrival, after having contacted a UniTrento professor available to supervise them during their stay.

Faculty nomination should preferably be given with a 3-months notice to allow to organize mobility properly.

Grant payment

The students grant will be paid in 2 installments: 70% at their arrival in Trento (together with the travel contribution), onto an Italian bank account opened on purpose, 30% before leaving and after delivering the mobility documentation requested by the programme.

Faculty grants will be paid soon before the mobility start onto the faculty personal bank account, together with the travel contribution.

Students and faculty selection

The sending institution is responsible for choosing its outgoing students and faculty through fair and transparent selection, as certified in theDeclaration of sending institution, to be filled out for each mobility participant (available in the online nomination tool). Participating academic staff will have to agree upon a teaching project of at least 10 hours with an UniTrento faculty of the same academic area.

Project documentation

Each participant to the mobility will have to sign a financial agreement with UniTrento to allow the payment of the grant. Before mobility starts, student will have to draft their Learning Agreement, while faculty will have to fill out their Mobility Agreement (see templates in the download box).

Support to mobility participants

Incoming students and faculty will be fully supported in the organization of their mobility to Trento by the UniTrento International office, and will be granted accommodation and access to the same services offered to UniTrento students and staff. For more information about services see the Why Trento web page on the webportal dedicated to incoming exchange students.

After Mobility: credit transfer

The core of the Erasmus+ program being the recognition by the home university of the academic experience abroad, and as foreseen in the learning agreement signed before mobility, all students returned from ICM exchange mobility will have to show that the examinations taken (or research carried out) at UniTrento have been recognized at the home university. Within 2 months from their return, students will have to send to UniTrento the home university transcript of records proving the credit transfer. In case there is no official recognition in the transcript of records, partner universities are required to fill out the "Credit transfer declaration" document (available in the download box).

Erasmus+ visibility

All activities organized in the frame of Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (students' selection calls, email of dissemination, teaching material, and so no) must clearly show the ER+ logo (see the useful links box).
