STUDENT MOBILITY IN A GLOBALISED WORLD
In the current global economy, the competitiveness of a country depends largely on the skills of its workforce. One of the objectives of higher education is therefore to develop the skills of students so that they can meet the growing demand for highly skilled workers. The period of study is also a time for acquiring multicultural skills, which is why the European Union (EU) and the French government supports student mobility through the Erasmus programme for example. In the future the number of overseas students will only tend to increase which will only accentuate the importance of student mobility. Governments in all countries have encouraged student mobility, but it is Europe that has put in place the most ambitious student mobility policy, in particular to achieve labour market integration by removing the barriers that might occur while seeking opportunities on the international job market.
Enrolling in an academic career is not only about achieving a degree. As an academic institution it’s the role of the university to stimulate future graduates and to offer opportunities for studying and performing internships abroad. When students open themselves and their abilities to the world, mutual benefits ensue for the hosting school as well as the student. Student mobility is an integral part of the history of the European continent. At INSEEC we are seeking to adapt and improve student mobility plans on the short and long term. We are a proud part of the Erasmus + charter!
STUDENT MOBILITY AT INSEEC
Enhancing the educational experience and social connectedness for international students is the responsibility of different involved parties among whom international students themselves and host institutions play a key role. INSEEC university and its campuses are part of the Erasmus + charter which aims to give students and staff the opportunity to experience time out of the country they study in to enhance their skills and increase their employability. The aim of the Erasmus+ Charter is to enable students and staff of the school 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 exchange good practice between institutions so that they can have a taste of what it its to be a true international student.
Even though local policies may differ, any higher education institution from neighbouring countries, non-EU Balkan countries, Asia, Africa and Latin America can participate in projects outside the EU.
These strategies have been deployed with the aim that 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 exchange good practice between institutions.
Teachers can also go to partner universities to teach courses and exchange research. Any student that wishes to apply can do so through the proper internal channels that are available on all of our campuses.
The International Relations Department manages student mobility, as well as teacher mobility, together with Research. The Internship and Company Relations Department manages internship mobility.
Students can obtain a grant or scholarship for a period of study in another European institution, starting in the second year of study, for a period of between 3 and 12 months. Students benefit from 12 months of mobility, studies and/or internships, per study cycle (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate). Students can opt for a work placement in a company in another European country (from 2 to 12 months). Students benefit from 12 months of mobility, studies and/or internships, per study cycle (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate). The internship period abroad is supervised by the IGE and the host company, which sign an internship agreement with the student.
When a student applies for studying abroad we at INSEEC always assure that the data collected during the process is handled in accordance to European data protections laws.
