Outgoing students

The University of Milan supports the international mobility of its students, by offering them the possibility to spend study and training periods abroad, unique occasions to enrich their curricula in an international context.

In this section, students of the computer Science Department interested in studying abroad will find useful information for their stay and a brief guide on what to do before, during, and after their stay.

On February 15, 2024, the Erasmus Commission of the Computer Science Department organized an online meeting to discuss the specificities of the Area Computer science in the preparation of the application.

More info are available here:https://scotti.di.unimi.it/erasmus/

The slides and the registration of the meeting and additional information are available.

Useful information for students interested in studying abroad are available on the dedicated section of the web site of the University of Milan.

Before leaving

  • Do not miss the informative meetings organized for international students

  • Submit your Learning Agreement to the Erasmus committee according to the instructions you will receive via e-mail (please attach you Transcript of Records, your study plan, and the syllabus of the courses included in your Learning Agreement)
  • If your Learning Agreement is approved, you will receive an e-mail with the signed document
  • Ask the Receiving Institution for the approval of your Learning Agreement
  • Return the approved Learning Agreement to both the Receiving Institution and to the Erasmus committee

Important: In case you are going abroad for your thesis, the application for the thesis must be submitted to the Erasmus Committee and you need to have a foreign supervisor.

Communicate your decision via e-mail as soon as possible to the International Agreements and Relations Office and to the Erasmus Commitee to give the opportunity to other students of experiencing the Erasmus program.

Coming back

Transcript of Records and Certificate of stay.

  • Request the Transcript of Records to the host University (certification of the approved exams and other training activities)
  • If the Transcript of Records is not yet available, ask the host university to send it to your Italian address or to the Office of International Agreements and Relations of the University of Milan

Fill in the individual report through the online procedure (you will receive an e-mail with precise instructions)

Recognition Procedure

  • Send the Transcript of Records released by the Receiving Institution, the final Learning Agreement, the Transcript of Records by University of Milan, your latest study plan to the Erasmus Committee. You will be notified when the Erasmus Committee approves your Erasmus activities
  • After approval of your Erasmus activities, you will be required to modify you study plan, including the activities performed during your Erasums stay and removing the approved exams

Important:

  • Only activities foreseen in the Learning Agreement that appear as successful (e.g., correspond to successful completion of the exam) in the Transcript of Records can be recognized
  • In case of thesis abroad, it is necessary to request the approval of the thesis to the Erasmus Committee
  • For exams that require an integration, please wait for instructions by the Erasmus Committee before taking any action

For students who successfully attended Study and Traineeship periods abroad, in accordance with document “Linee guida di Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei periodi di studio all'estero” approved by Senato Accademico on June15, 2010, and with the rules approved by the Collegio Didattico di Informatica on January 16, 2018, the Degree Mark (Voto di Laurea), formulated by the Degree Board (Commissione di Laurea) and based on the career of the student and on his/her final graduation exam, must also include an increment as an incentive aimed at rewarding the activities abroad.

For all exchange agreements in which the Computer Science Department is involved, the increment will be established by the Department Erasmus Committee observing the following criteria.

  • The increment can be granted only if the student has acquired at least 21 CFU at the Receiving Institution (in case of mobility for exams) or if the student attended the entire final thesis traineeship at the Receiving Institution
  • The increment is computed summing two components, assessing 1) the quality and 2) the quantity of the activities performed at the Receiving Institution as well as of their results, as follows.

In case of mobility for exams:

  • the quality component measures the quality of the learning activities abroad, according to the following intervals (average marks for the CFUs obtained while in mobility):
    • from 18/30 to 23,999/30: 0,5 point;
    • from 24/30 to 25,999/30: 1 point;
    • from 26/30 to 27,999/30: 1,5 points;
    • from 28/30: 2 points.
  • The quantity component measures the volume of the activities abroad:
    • at least 24 CFUs acquired in 1 academic semester: 0,5 point;
    • at least 48 CFUs acquired in 2 academic semesters: 1 point.

In case of mobility for the thesis traineeship period:

  • the quality component measures the quality of the traineeship as assessed by the teacher of the Receiving Institution who supervised the student:
    • sufficient: 0,5 point;
    • good: 1 point;
    • very good: 1,5 points;
    • excellent: 2 points.
  • the quantity component measures the volume of the activities abroad:
    • traineeship for Bachelor’s Degrees (stage finale di Laurea Triennale): 0,5 point;
    • traineeship for Master’s Degrees (stage finale di Laurea Magistrale): 1 point.

In case the mobility includes both exams and thesis traineeship, the overall increment cannot exceed 3 points. In these cases, the Department Erasmus Committee will assess the overall quality and quantity components of the increase.

The Degree Board (Commissione di Laurea) will add the total increment (computed according to the criteria above) to the weighted average (computed in 110s) of  the marks of the exams in the career of the student. The Degree Board (Commissione di Laurea) will then add to this overall mark the mark granted for the final graduation exam, to produce the final Degree mark (voto di Laurea).
