Erasmus program - ICN Business School

Erasmus program

Erasmus +

The Erasmus+ program for the higher education system contributes to create a European higher education area in aiming at several goals:

  • to improve and reinforce the European dimension of higher education
  • increasing student, teachers and staff’s mobility
  • the strengthening of multilateral cooperation
  • the transparency and the recognition of the acquired qualifications
  • the internationalization of the European higher education system

This program encourages mobility actions, in Europe and worldwide, for students (academic exchanges or internship), teachers and all staff members of higher education.

ICN Business School is enrolled in this ambitious project and takes part in different actions of the program such as the higher education student mobility, the teaching mobility and the academic staff mobility.

ICN Business School holds an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).

The Erasmus+ program can also supports staff members and students with disabilities.

 

To find out more about the Erasmus+ Program, especially on the higher education topic, you may read the Erasmus+ Program Guide from the European Commission website.

Mobility for higher education students

The Erasmus+ program can help you finance your European Mobility partially or entirely.

  • Studying period: from the second studying year in higher education, for a study abroad of 3 months (90 days) minimum to 12 months maximum. The host institution must be an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education holder and be located in one of the Erasmus+ Program participant countries.
  • Internship period: from the first studying year in higher education, for an internship of 2 months (60 days) minimum to 12 months maximum, in a host institution (e.g. a company) located in one of the participating countries.
  • Blended mobility: possibility of including an internship period during the studying mobility (the internship must be supervised by the host institution).

Mobility for teachers and institutions staff members

The Erasmus+ Program aims to modernize and improve the higher education all over Europe and in the rest of the world. Different kind of mobility are available at ICN Business School: staff members’ mobility for training purposes (for teaching and non-teaching staff) and staff members’ mobility for teaching purposes (for teaching staff only).

 

You have to be aware that the European Commission allocates a limited number of grants per year. Grants are allocated according to the available amount and according to the following terms:


The mobility must last 2 days to 2 months (trip duration not included) in one of the Erasmus+ Program participant countries:

  • For a teaching activity: for the outgoing mobility, a minimum of 8 teaching hours, in a higher education institution which must be an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education holder and be located in one of the participating countries. Regarding the incoming mobility for a company staff (invited staff), the 8 teaching hours are not required.
  • For a training mobility: training/internship/observation period, in a company or in a higher education institution (including structured courses and language training).
  • Blended mobility: possibility of combining a teaching activity and a training activity during the same period. The minimum teaching time is lowered to 4 hours a week.

Warning: Conferences are ineligible for the program (neither for teaching nor for training).

Financing conditions for your Erasmus+ mobility (monthly amount):

The Erasmus+ grant is a contribution that not necessarily covers all your projects fees. It is highly advised that the beneficiary institutions search for other funding means (co-financing).

  • the project management (“mobility organization” budget)
  • the participants’ mobility, whether at a monthly rate (students) or at a daily one (staff members) depending on the destination country
  • staff members trip costs, depending on the kilometric distance
  • potential specific needs at actual costs (only for individuals with disabilities)
