CM - International Credit Mobilitys

For 30 years, the European Union has funded the Erasmus programme that has enabled over 4 million European students to spend part of their studies in another higher education institution (HEI) in Europe. In 2015, Erasmus+ opened up these opportunities to individuals and organizations from other parts of the world. Through the new "International Credit Mobility" action - ICM for short - European HEIs can now set up mobility agreements with partners around the world, to send and receive students and staff.

Mobility project for higher education students and staff can comprise one or more of the following activities:

Student :

The study period abroad (usually one semester) must be part of the student's study Bachelor, Master or Doctorate programme at USJ.

Staff mobility:
  • teaching periods: this activity allows HEI teaching staff or staff from enterprises to teach at a partner HEI abroad. Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline included in the inter-institutional agreement signed.
  • training periods: this activity supports the professional development of HEI teaching and non-teaching staff as well as the development of involved institutions. It may take the form of training events abroad and job shadowing/observation periods/training at a partner HEI.

The scholarship covers :
  • travel cost
  • subsistence

Capacity-building projects

Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from Programme and eligible Partner Countries.

The aim of these projects is to support eligible Partner Countries to:

  • address the challenges facing their higher education institutions and systems
  • increase cooperation with the EU
  • voluntarily converge with EU development in higher education, and
  • promote people-to-people contacts, intercultural awareness, and understanding.
