We strongly recommend that you attend an Italian course. You can take an Italian language course during the semester or the "Italian pre-session" before the beginning of the semester. The course is not compulsory, but we recommend that you attend it. Our EBC students do not have to pay any extra fees for this course. Please indicate on the Course Request List whether you wish to attend the course.
The EBC may only accept one Italian course for the conversion of grades.
The EBC University can offer an ERASMUS place from the winter semester 2018/2019.
Deadlines for submitting application documents to the International Office:
31/01 for the winter semester
31/05 for the summer semester
Please note that the deadlines vary between partner universities - it may take a while before you hear from the partner university.
- Good knowledge of the local language or foreign languages for teaching purposes.
- All relevant courses at the EBC University must be passed.
We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university and a certain number of exchange places per semester. You can apply for these places.
The ERASMUS+ application procedure is divided into two steps:
Step 1: Application to the EBC University
You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and hand in the following documents:
- Letter of motivation in English (one page maximum); include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in the last paragraph of your cover letter, in which you would be interested if we had to cancel your first request.
- Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)
The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it includes academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.
We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.
If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will try to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).
Step 2: Application to the partner university
The EBC students submit the Application Form and the completed Course Choice Form to the International Office. The International Office nominates the students to the UCSC and they receive an email for an online application. After the students have received the confirmation of the nomination, they have to apply online and upload the respective documents (copy of identity card, passport photo, English certification, proof of achievement).
Studying is possible within the context of an ERASMUS exchange or directly by paying tuition fees to the university.
We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university. You can apply for an ERASMUS place (Attention - the number of ERASMUS places is limited).
For the participation in the ERASMUS program, an administrative fee of 750,-€ is due. In this case, no further tuition fees will be charged at the ERASMUS university in which the student is enrolled.
The tuition fees for the UCSC Milano amount to a total of 2,570€. You pay these directly to the host university.
Together with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules of at least 20 ECTS which you would like to take. The International Office and, if applicable, the Dean's Office will confirm your selection or ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of the courses at the EBC University and is therefore binding. If there are any changes on location, please contact the Università Cattolica and the International Office.
