Information for Institutions


The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities a higher education institution like Unimore may carry out within Erasmus +.

The European Policy Statement (EPS) is central to the application of the Erasmus University Charter. It describes the current situation of Unimore’s international co-operation in the context of current national, international and European developments.

Unimore’s Erasmus + Information Sheet provides a comprehensive overview of our University including all the information that other European Institutions and foreign students may need concerning Erasmus+ Codes, Departments list, administrative offices organization and other student-oriented services.

European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)

ECTS is a credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries. Since they are based on the learning achievements and workload of a course, a student can transfer their ECTS credits from one university to another so they are added up to contribute to an individual's degree programme or training.

ECTS helps to make learning more student-centred. It is a central tool in the Bologna Process, which aims to make national systems more compatible. ECTS also helps with the planning, delivery and evaluation of study programs, and makes them more transparent.

Inter-institutional Agreements

Inter-institutional agreements can be signed between two or more higher education institutions (HEIs). For mobility between HEIs in Programme Countries, both or all of them must be holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.

By signing an inter-institutional agreement, involved institutions agree to cooperate for the exchange of students and / or staff in the context of the Erasmus+ Programme.

They commit themselves to respecting the quality requirements of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education in all aspects of the organization and management of mobility and agree on a series of quantitative and qualitative measures to ensure mobility of high quality and impact.
