Please take into consideration that the Erasmus students can choose classes in different main courses of the same level degree, in order to arrange their optimal planes of study and to update their Learning Agreement, in the section “During the mobility”, within the first month of their Erasmus stay. Normally, the students who have attended a three years course (at least) at their own University can be admitted to attend the second level courses in our Academy.

On the base of a specific Agreement with this Association, ESN L’Aquila – AQUILASMUS, which is the local Association of ESN (Erasmus Student Network) ITALIA, helps the incoming Erasmus students to find a provisional and/or a final accommodation and, besides, to solve other practical problems involving logistics and to fit themselves into Academy and town contexts.

|The attendance of the courses is mandatory. The Erasmus students, once decided the courses which they want to put in their Learning Agreements, must attend all the lessons concerning the chosen courses, in order to obtain the needed and agreed number of credits and, consequently, to have the opportunity to be admitted to the exams.
In our Academy the prevailing part of the courses spreads out for the whole academic year; that means the ideal time to spend for an Erasmus experience is that period. The students who choose to spend only one semester have to consider the half of the annual number of credits on their preliminary Learning Agreements; once arrived in our Institution, they can agree with each professor on the possibility to obtain, with an intensification of the didactic work, the whole amount of credits and the consequent opportunity to give the related exams.
