International Credit Mobility
International Credit Mobility is the international opening of Erasmus between EU programme countries and non EU partner countries in both directions (i.e. outgoing and incoming). This action is managed by National Agencies located in Programme Countries.
What is it?
European higher education institutions and individuals can work with partner institutions outside the EU through international mobility, joint degrees, and international cooperation partnerships, including capacity building and staff development in emerging and developing parts of the world.
Who can apply?
Applications will be received only from students following a full-time undergraduate degree programme (Level 6) and who will be not less than 18 years of age by the time of application.
As a general rule students who will be in their final year during the academic year 2016-7 cannot be nominated for an exchange programme.
What arrangements are made?
Prior to the departure the Erasmus+ student is provided with:
A grant agreement covering the mobility period and signed between the student and his or her sending higher education institution;
A “Learning Agreement” setting out the programme of studies to be followed, as approved by the student, the sending and the receiving institution;
The “Erasmus+ Student Charter” setting out the student’s rights and obligations with respect to his/her period of study abroad.
At the end of the period abroad:
The receiving institution must provide the student and their sending institution with a transcript of records confirming that the agreed programme has been completed and confirming the results;
The sending institution must give full academic recognition for satisfactorily completed activities during the mobility period as agreed in the Learning Agreement, by using ECTS credits or an equivalent system. The mobility period should also be recorded in the Diploma Supplement.
Will financial support be provided or fees charged?
Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad
Erasmus+ students – whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ EU grant – are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution
The payment of any national grant or loan to outgoing students should be maintained during the study period abroad.
