ERASMUS + International Credit Mobility Program

 

The new ERASMUS + program provides the same mobility opportunities to staff and students from countries beyond Europe to participating HEI from the European Union.

The project is called: International Credit Mobility, an activity under Key Action 1 Mobility. 

 

EURECOM completed in May 2017 a 2-year ERASMUS+ International Credit Mobility project in partnership with the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. EURECOM and HSE signed a MOU and a Student Exchange Agreement in 2014.

The ERASMUS + International Credit Mobility program has been instrumental in ensuring a successfull implementation of the agreement between HSE and EURECOM.

 

The program indeed played a decisive role by providing a common framework for credit recognition and financial support for three Master's students from the Higher School of Economics who studied at EURECOM for a semester in Spring 2016. The experience proved successful for the three students and encouraged one of them to further apply to a ERASMUS + PhD program.

 

The program also helped intensify institutional relations between the two institutions at the administration and research levels by supporting a Staff Training week for two Staff members from the HSE who visited EURECOM in October 2016 (Mikhail KOMAROV, Deputy Head for International Relations of the School of Business Informatics) and April 2017 (Mrs Svetlana MALTSEVA, Dean of the School of Business and Informatics) and for one Staff Member from EURECOM to HSE in April 2017 (Caroline HANRAS, International Relations Manager).

 

The high satisfaction rate illustrated in the mobility reports of all the participants prove that the program was successfull implemented and bodes well for future cooperation initiatives between the two institutions.

 

The next step is a Double - Master's Degree agreement to ensure a long standing meaningful partnership.

ERASMUS + Mobility in Spring 2016

Among all available options I`ve chosen EURECOM to apply to, because visiting France was always one of my dreams. Surely, my motivation was to acquire knowledge, improve my language skills and to enhance my cultural understanding of the Europe. The ERASMUS scholarship was a perfect opportunity, as it made financial and organizational obstacles redundant. This was my first time to travel alone abroad; it wasn't scary at all, instead I was feeling so curious. I still can't forget the first days and our amazing Welcoming Party organized by Student Association and the extremely helpful tutoring team, who answered all my queries and helped me settle in. Despite the challenges I faced on a daily basis, it was a great learning experience and all part of the journey, one that inspired me. South France is an amazing place to study and to live. It was a great period in my life and it was like a turning point for me. I can say that those five months were the greatest period I lived because I discovered new places, I had a lot of fun, I met many people from all over the world so I found new cultures and I discovered awesome things. I can say that ERASMUS + is the best way to improve your skills and gain experience especially as an exchange student.
