Plan your next international mobility

1. Choose the mobility programme that suits you best


The first step in planning your study or traineeship experience abroad is to select the mobility programme that suits you best.

If you plan to attend courses provided by a university abroad and take examinations for a period of more than 3 months, the Erasmus+ Programme might be right for you. If you are interested in a one-month traineeship in a non-EU country, take a look at the next call for applications for the Ulisse Programme. If you are interested in visiting Michigan State University to learn more about Civic Engagement, you may be interested in the Fulbright Foundation's SUSI Programme.

There are many opportunities, some easy to access, others more competitive, but all developed to enhance your professional profile and offer you opportunities for growth and exchange.

If you need help, please contact the Mobility and International Relations Office or the departmental contact persons.

Be careful!

  • Do not buy your flights or book your accommodation until you have confirmed that you are a beneficiary of an international mobility grant and have been accepted by your destination.
  • Check with your departmental contact person(s) to make sure that the activities you wish to carry out abroad are compatible with your study plan.

2. Make sure you meet the minimum requirements for receiving a mobility grant

Some mobility programmes are designed to develop specific skills or target specific groups of beneficiaries. Make sure you meet the eligibility criteria before you apply.

For instance: 

  • In order to be eligible for funding, you will be required to be enrolled as a regular student at the University of Sassari for the academic year that the call for grants refers to. If you plan to complete your study programme before the spring supplementary exam session (April of each year), you will not be eligible to receive a Ulisse grant since you will be exempt from paying erollment fees for the ongoing academic year. Or,
  • If you wish to apply for a post-lauream traineeship, you may only apply to an Erasmus+ for Traineeship call for grants. Any other mobility programmes is currently unavailable to alumni.

All incoming and outgoing students benefit from the University's insurance cover for third party liability and damage to third parties, the details of which can be found in the mobility contracts drawn up by the Mobility and International Relations Office.

However, the University does not provide health cover for travel abroad. For this reason, UNISS launched a call for applications (raccolta di adesioni) from insurance companies offering discounts, exclusive promotions and facilitations to enrolled students. For further information, please visit the Insurance Coverage Notice Board section (Bacheca coperture assicurative)

3. Get in touch with the Office and the departmental contact person(s)


The staff of the Mobility and International Relations Office, the academic and administrative contact persons at each Department, and our Tutor Ambassadors are available to provide support and help you plan your international mobility correctly.

The University collaborates with the local branch of the Erasmus Student Network Association, hosted in the premises of Palazzo Zirulia in Piazza Università 11.

ESN Sassari provides services to the local student community and is an important point of contact with ESNs throughout the EU.
