Student Mobility Program
STIMULATING STUDENT MOBILITY
In today’s global economy, a country’s competitiveness is primarily determined by the skills and flexibility of its workforce. As a result, one of the main goals of higher education is to improve students’ skills so that they can fulfill the rising demand for highly skilled jobs. The European Union (EU) and the French government recognize that studying in France or abroad is also a time for developing multicultural skills. Cross-campus education usually involves physical travel: students moving to take a course at another campus or institution, or lecturers delivering the same course at different locations. Thanks to partnerships, students can even take courses or internships at organisations abroad. Mobility also means that the guidance of students and their study programme is no longer restricted to a single campus. Supervisors are able to support students from a distance via video conferencing, for example. Our university is engaging on the forefront of connecting different cultures and academic environments.
OUR ERASMUS + ENGAGEMENT
One of the great examples of how we promote and aid our student mobility program is the Erasmus project. INSEEC has an agreement with Erasmus + which aims to give students and staff the opportunity to spend time in other countries to enhance their skills through exchanges and increase their employability when they will start their professional careers. The aim of the Erasmus+ Charter is to enable students and staff to undertake a period of study, training or work experience abroad in order to develop their language and professional skills, to promote employability on the national, European and international market and to stimulate the exchanges of good practice between institutions.
The Erasmus+ programme is open to the following actors from participating countries
- Higher education students;
- Higher education staff (teachers and others);
- Private companies.
- Higher education institutions from neighbouring countries in Europe, non-EU Balkan countries, Asia, Africa and Latin America can participate in projects outside the EU.
Teachers can also go to partner universities to give courses and exchange research.
The International Relations Department’s office manages student mobility, as well as teacher mobility, jointly with Research. The Internship and Company Relations Department manages internship mobility.
The teams of these departments at our French sites (Paris-Bordeaux-Lyon-Chambéry) are at your disposal to help you in your orientation, choice of partner universities, study path or choice of companies and the definition of your professional project.
FOR WHO IS THIS PROGRAMME INTENDED?
You will need to anticipate, think about and build your international project before you apply. To do this, the International Relations and Career Center teams at the different sites are available to answer your questions and help you with your international study or internship project (interview by appointment).
The availability of our Erasmus+ programs include all students enrolled at INSEEC Grande Ecole, regardless of nationality, income or degree.
FINANCING STUDENT MOBILITY
It is our policy that to partially finance their academic mobility and internships abroad, students in the INSEEC BBA programme can make use of various schemes:
ERASMUS + GRANT
The Erasmus+ scheme allows students to enjoy benefits from financial aid, without income requirements, for their periods of study and/or internships when they take place in Europe in the partner countries of the Erasmus programme. The amounts of the grants are capped and indexed to the standard of living in the country in which the mobility takes place and vary according to:
- the destination
- the duration of the stay
BORDEAUX CAMPUS: AQUIMOB SCHEME
This financial aid is provided by the Conseil Régional de Nouvelle-Aquitaine that participated with us in the past on a means-tested basis, for any study or work placement stay abroad of more than 2 weeks.
- For internships: 80€/week of mobility (up to 100€/week for Crous scholarship holders)
- For ACADEMIC mobility, the calculation method is based on a fixed price:
- 8 to 15 weeks = 700€.
- 16 to 26 weeks = 1.600€.
- More than 26 weeks = 2.900€.
- Students can claim this aid several times, up to a maximum total amount of €3,600 for non-CROUS grant holders and €4,000 for CROUS grant holders.
LYON CAMPUS: INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MOBILITY GRANTS (BRMIE)
The BRMIE is a grant from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, open to all third-year students that seek opportunities in the framework of their studies abroad for destinations not eligible for the Erasmus + grant. It is awarded on the basis of social criteria and amounts to €95 per week. On average, students receive between €665 and €1140 for the entire study period.
