Roma Tre University counts about 40.000 students. It is an active participant in the European Union research and mobility programmes and has signed international cooperation agreements with about 400 academic institutions in different parts of the world. Roma Tre is an official member of the UNICA Network (Universities of the European Capital Cities) and took part in the Socrates Programme (I and II), Leonardo da Vinci, Alfa, Jean Monnet, Grundtvig, Minerva and Language, EU- Australia. In 2007 Roma Tre was awarded the Erasmus University Charter (EUC) and in 2014 the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.
The main objectives of Roma Tre are: the qualitative consolidation of existing agreements and their multiplication; improving the performance of students abroad. Student and teacher Erasmus mobility of Roma Tre has increased in number during the years. Currently, there are about 500 outgoing students and the same number of incoming students.
Some Erasmus agreements were signed to strengthen double degrees and international curricula; among the partners there are the Université de Poitiers, the Universidad de Murcia and the Humboldt- Universität Berlin.
In this context a research group from Roma Tre was selected to take part in an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Project approved in 2015. Roma Tre has obtained European funds for a project within the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility with the following partner countries: Albania, Serbia, and South Africa. In 2016 Roma Tre obtained those funds for a mobility project with Russia. As of October 2016 Roma Tre counts 378 European partners within Erasmus Programme.
In order to enhance quality mobility, since 2011 Roma Tre has offered an Erasmus prize fund of 500,00 euro to each of the 38 students who gained most credits during their Erasmus stay.
Several actions have been taken which have contributed to the achievement of the objectives connected to integration; among those, the involvement of incoming students at the award ceremony. On several occasions, incoming students have participated in the field trips funded by the departments and therefore free for students (archaeological sites, museums and galleries, art cities, sites of particular historical and architectural interest). In addition, there is an active partnership with the Coopération scientifique et universitaire Office of the Embassy of France in Italy, thanks to which several joint initiatives have been pursued, with the participation of Italian and foreign students Erasmus.
About 73% of Erasmus outgoing students attend the first cycle or single cycle of study, 26% the second cycle, while 3 students attend the third cycle. In the area of teacher mobility, about 10% of teachers are contract professors. The effort of Roma Tre to develop the Erasmus Programme has been confirmed by response to our call for students. In 2015/2016: 1377 applications were received.
Students are selected by committees formed by disciplinary coordinators on a combination of factors of merit, linguistic skills and educational / scientific reasons.
Roma Tre has a Language Centre that offers our outgoing students frontal lessons, e-learning, workshops, and Tandem-learning to improve their language competence. Roma Tre adopted the European Commission suggestion to fix B1 language level as the compulsory level for all students before the start of their mobility. Our Language Centre offers intensive courses at various different levels to incoming students. The first language course is free of charge, while the second course costs about 100 euros, a reduced price made available only to Erasmus incoming students.
Roma Tre signed an agreement with a private agency so as to help and support incoming students in finding accommodation in Rome. This service is offered free of charge for students. Furthermore, there is an Office for sports initiatives which is highly appreciated by Erasmus students, who take part in sports events with enthusiasm.
Incoming students enjoy the same services provided by the university for Italian students: libraries with free loan, canteen at reduced prices, free wi-fi in all locations, free access to the University sports facilities,etc.
The University Theatre (Teatro Palladium) offers many facilitations to Erasmus students for attending plays and performances (theater, music, literature), often free of charge. There is also an agreement with several theaters in the city for reduced price tickets.
Roma Tre hosts and supports an Erasmus Student Network which arranges Welcome Weeks, cultural events, such as archeological and art tours, cultural trips and a cineforum.
Roma Tre offers a service dedicated to students with disabilities.
