4EU+ Flagship 3 - Master exchange program

The 4EU+ European University Alliance brings together six comprehensive, research-intensive, public universities from four regions of Europe   [see ...]

Within Flagship 3 "Transforming science and society: Advancing information, computation and communication" we encourage students from master programs in Computer Science and Mathematics to visit alliance partners for one or two terms. 

If you are interested to explore the possibilities within the 4EU+ Alliance, follow this step-by-step plan to engage in the exchange schemes that we offer:

  1. The prerequisite to enter the exchange program is the completion of two terms of studies at your home university. Depending on the program you come from, you should have completed between 54 and 60 ECTS when you start your exchange.
  2. Plan your exchange well in advance. We recommend to use the winter term to be abroad. The deadline for the next exchange application is May 15, 2020. The exchange program will start in fall, the exact details depend on the academic calendar of your host university.
  3. The choice is not easy! Below you will find an explanation of how to browse courses in Mathematics, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and neighboring topics to construct your learning agreement. The learning agreement is the basis of your exchange. It lists all modules that you aim to attend during your stay abroad and has to be confirmed by home and host university.
    Remark: 4EU+ is very flexible regarding learning agreements. We aim to fully recognize suitable modules from all partners.
  4. Submit the following documents (as PDF files!) in a single mail to the 4EU+ Flagship 3 mobility host of your home university to apply for an exchange including funding:
    • CV/Europass,
    • Letter of motivation,
    • Transcript of records,
    • Learning agreement,
    • 4EU+ exchange blue sheet (see below).
    The flagship board will continuously discuss and evaluate mobility applications and will give you feedback to your application within 10 workdays.
  5. Start your 4EU+ master's exchange program to enjoy the freedom, flexibility and diversity of our joint university environment! As the third term aims at preparing the master's thesis, 4EU+ exchange offers the possibility to extend your stay to two terms total and write the thesis at the host university. You can decide to extend your stay while you are abroad!

Heidelberg University (Heidelberg)

Welcome to Heidelberg University!

This short section aims to explain to you how to select courses and modules for your stay. As 4EU+ Alliance so far does not have an own module management system, we use the local system of each university to provide the information about courses and modules.

The core of module selection for Heidelberg University is   "Lehre, Studium, Forschung" (Teaching, Studies, Research - short: LSF), an online system that lists all courses for each term. The link brings you directly to course pages for the Faculty of Mathematics & Computer Science.

Important things to know for your course selection:

  • Modules are identified by their lecture number ("Lect.No"). As modules are used in several programs, they appear multiple times in LSF - but always with the same lecture number.
  • Course tables can change every year. As the final course tables are only available 8 weeks before the start of the term, use the modules of one year ago as guidance to what courses will probably be available. You can select the term in the upper right-hand corner (ST = summer term, WT = winter term).
  • The module plan of Heidelberg University is research oriented. Some interesting modules, based on current research projects of our professors, will only be available on short notice. Therefore your selection might have to be changed when the term begins. The more "specialized" a module is, the less regularly it will be taught. 
  • Make an educated selection based on this framework - we will adjust your learning module if necessary when the term starts. For your selection you can choose modules from all master programs in the faculty:
    • master's "program Mathematics"
    • master's "program Scientific Computing"
    • master's "program Applied Computer Science"
  • Language of instruction: The LSF lists the language in which the module was presented the last time it was given. We aim to convert most of the master's program to English as teaching language. So a module that was presented in German in the last winter term might be read in English this winter term. Most professors accept English participation in their seminars and practicals even if the announced language of instruction is listed as "German".

Note: Registration for modules only starts in the first two weeks of October. Some modules only ask for registration once the lecture period starts. Therefore the learning agreement is the cornerstone of your course selection.

University of Milan (Milan)

Welcome to University of Milan!

This short introduction give you some hints about how to navigate in our web pages and how to select courses for your visit. As 4EU+ Alliance so far does not have an own management system for visiting students, we use our local system of the University of Milan to provide you the information about courses and administrative procedures.

  • All courses offered at the University of Milan in the area of Computer Science, the guidance about how to select them and to prepare the learning agreement, all logistic information and accomodation;
  • All syllabi.

The   entire educational offer of the University of Milan in the area of the Flagship 3 of the 4EU+ Alliance (including all courses on theory, technology, applications and social impact in all disciplines) will be posted by the end of May 2020. We will also outline the courses in the area of artificial intelligence.

  • The list of courses may change every year. The list of courses for the academic year 2020-21 will be posted in June, even though it is expected to be very similar to the one of the previous academic year. Courses included in the list published for the academic year 2020-21 will be final (a published course is very rarely cancelled, and only under very unique circumstances).
  • Bachelor courses are offered in Italian, while master courses are offered either in English or in Italian (please look to the list of courses to learn which is the language of instruction).
  • The Coordinator of the Erasmus+ visiting program will contact each student who selected our university by the end of July to start preparing and reviewing your learning agreement.

Looking forward to seeing you at the University of Milan! ciao!
