ERASMUS+ opportunities, access procedures and selection criteria are described in a specific call for applications for the Food area. We have selected 40 partner universities throughout Europe based on their affinity with this programme of study. The fields to be developed abroad include microbial biotechnology, applied nutrition, food plant design and management, innovation economics and management, logistics and packaging technology, process modelling, enhancement and innovation.
The learning agreement is defined in cooperation with the study programme's Erasmus manager, both for the choice of exams and the organization of the internship at the partner university. Before completing the learning agreement, you must obtain the formal approval of the exams to be taken at the host university by teachers holding equivalent or similar courses at the University of Milan. The conduct of an experimental activity abroad, as part of or the entire internship activity, requires a letter of consent from a teacher of the partner university and the formal approval of the objectives, the project and the internship period by a teacher of the study programme acting as supervisor. At the end of the study period abroad, you will deliver the transcript of records issued by the host university and obtain credit and grade recognition by resolution of the Academic Board.
