Study Abroad

Application and selection

Students who are properly enrolled in Università Cattolica at the time of their application for the programme and at the time of their period of mobility can apply for semester programmes abroad.  


  • Students enrolled on the 1st year of Bachelor’s Degree Programmes in the Faculty of Economics (Milan and Rome campus) and in the Interfaculty in Cultural Heritage Sciences: the Faculty has decided that a semester abroad can only be undertaken from the 3rd year of their programme and not before. 
  • Students enrolled on "Interfaculty EU Studies Investor Relations and Financial Communication" degree programme: students enrolled on Master’s degree pathway cannot respond to application calls for semester programmes as their pathway already contains a period of mobility abroad. 
  • Students enrolled on individual courses and not on full degree programmes.
  • Students with a grade average below 24/30 can ONLY apply for EU destinations. In the absence of a grade average, first year Master’s students must show a minimum grade of 90/110 and first year Bachelor’s students must show a minimum high school graduation grade of 80/100.
  • EXCHANGE PROGRAMME ONLY (Erasmus+ - Overseas): places are linked to specific faculties and/or degree programmes so students planning to move from one campus to another or from one faculty to another cannot apply.
