Students and staff selection
The sending institution is responsible for choosing its outgoing students and staff through fair and transparent selection, as envisaged in the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education, awarded to UniTrento, to which principles partner institutions have to comply with. The Declaration of sending institution (see download box at the bottom right of the page) is to be filled out for each mobility participant and attached to the nomination.
Full transparency in the dissemination and selection process must be proved by partners, that are asked to send to UniTrento all formal documents relating to the students' selection (emails, screenshots of websites, posters etc).
Academic staff can either undergo a formal selection or call, or be directly nominated as the referent of the agreement. In both cases the "Declaration of teaching staff selection criteria" must be filled out and attached to the nomination. The nominated faculty must have agreed upon a teaching project of at least 10 hours with an UniTrento faculty of the same academic area.
Each mobility participant will have to sign a financial agreement with UniTrento to allow the payment of the grant. Before the mobility starts, student will have to draft their Learning Agreement, while staff will have to fill out their Mobility Agreement (templates available in the download box).
Support to mobility participants
Incoming students and staff will be fully supported in the organization of their mobility to Trento by the International office and will be granted accommodation (up to availability) or assisted in finding one and will have access to the same services offered to UniTrento students and staff. For more information about services see the Services and Facilities and the Why Trento web pages.
After Mobility: recognition and credit transfer for mobile students
The core of the Erasmus+ program being the recognition by the home university of the academic experience abroad as counting towards the degree, 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) and send it to UniTrento International Office asap.
All activities organized in the frame of Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (students' selection calls, emails of dissemination, teaching material, and so on) must clearly show the ER+ logo (available in the download box).
Dissemination and information activities will be carried out by partners universities as agreed within the partnership Guide for dissemination (available in the download box).
The inclusion in the international mobility experience of the participants with fewer opportunities is encouraged and supported with:
- a top up of 250 €/per month (only for the project ICM 2022).
- a ticket bought before by UniTrento through its travel agent.
- the support of the offices in charge before and during the arrival of the participants.

UniTrento encourages the students to adopt a responsible behavior towards the environment around us. We highly recommend, if you have the chance, to choose an eco-friendlier transport on your way yo UniTrento (using for example the train).
