The Exchange frameworks Here you may find all the relevant information to spend a study/internship period in the framework of the existing exchange programs. Exchange mobility for Study at the University of Parma may be carried out under different exchange frameworks: ERASMUS+ SMS, with a duration between 2 and 12 months. The Mobility Period may be complemented with a traineeship period. In the case of blended mobility, the minimum physical mobility duration period is 2 months. ERASMUS+ SMT (Student Mobility for Traineeship). The University of Parma offers a number of internship opportunities to be chosen among the administration offices and the University Departments. ERASMUS+ BIP (Blended Intensive Programmes), including a virtual and a physical mobility period. The joint programme is jointly run by at least three universities from three Erasmus+ eligible Countries, where learners come together. Learners can be either students or staff who go on a training activity. ERASMUS+ ICM KA171 (International Credit Mobility), consisting of exchanges with partner institutions having a KA171 collaboration project with the University of Parma. International Credit Mobility (ICM) for Studies under the Erasmus+ Programme allows Partner Countries students to carry out Mobility Periods at the University of Parma and viceversa. ICM mobility is active only in presence of collaborative projects between the EU and the non-EU partner institution(s) OVERWORLD, when mobility takes place outside of the Erasmus+ Programme and, generally, from a partner university having a collaboration agreement with the University of Parma. Mobility may have a duration between 3 and 12 months. W.I.D.E. DOUBLE DEGREE MOBILITY. This type of mobility, which can be part of both the ERASMUS+ and OVERWORLD programmes, foresees the carrying out of a study period aimed at awarding a double degree (the one from the student's home university and the University of Parma). Study or traineeship exchange periods may be carried out in different ways, according to personal, institutional or circumstantial conditions. The University of Parma encourages, supports, and fosters the following types of mobility: Physical Mobility: physical presence at the University of Parma for the entire duration of the exchange period; Online Mobility: attendance of courses in virtual mode, without traveling from the Home Country to Parma; Blended Mobility: a mix between Physical and Online Mobility; the student may choose to alternate between physical and online mobility, depending on personal preferences and possible mitigating factors. Some limitations may be in place regarding the admissible types of mobility depending on the specific objectives of the exchange, as well as the provisions of the Mobility Programme under which the exchange is carried out.
