Erasmus Student Mobility

Part of CIIM’s mission is to offer an ‘international’ education with distinguished visiting faculty from around the world. The Erasmus programme adds another dimension to this mission with offering CIIM students the opportunity to spend some time abroad at a partner European institution.

Why Erasmus?

  • Spend time abroad, become culturally diverse
  • Enrich your CV and employability with international experience
  • Live the student life in another European city
  • Become more independent
  • Make new friends from around the world
  • Improve your foreign language skills
  • Learn new things and have fun

Eligibility criteria?

  • You must be a current CIIM student or within your first year as a CIIM graduate.
  • For undergraduate programmes you must have completed the first year of study.
  • Your CIIM tuition fee account must be in good standing.
  • You must receive approval from the Erasmus Selection Committee and your programme director.

How much does it cost?

  • Outgoing CIIM Erasmus students do not pay any additional tuition fees to the university that they will visit as Erasmus students. Fees are paid as normal at CIIM and the class is taken at the university that you will be hosted as an Erasmus student
  • You will not pay any other fees for registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution

Can I receive financial support?

Erasmus+ student mobility grant intends to contribute to the additional costs of living abroad. The grant is allocated by the European Commission in Brussels and distributed to each country’s National Agency.

You may be eligible to be awarded an ERASMUS grant to partially cover the travel and living costs during your study/traineeship period abroad. The grant amount is based on the cost of living expenses of the specific country (please see table below).

Online linguistics support

The Online Linguistic Support provides Erasmus participants with the opportunity to assess their knowledge of the language they will use to study, work or volunteer abroad. In addition, the Online Linguistic Support gives to a number of participants the possibility to follow an online language course to improve their competences.

The Online Linguistic Support includes mandatory assessment of language competences and the possibility to follow language courses. A language assessment has to be undertaken both before and at the end of the mobility period in order to monitor progress in language competences. The results of the language assessment carried out by the participants before their departure will not prevent them from taking part in the mobility activity.

The Online Linguistic Support is available for the following six languages:

  • German (DE)
  • English (EN)
  • Spanish (ES)
  • French (FR)
  • Italian (IT)
  • Dutch (NL)

These are the languages of instruction or work for about 90% of all students, trainees, youth volunteers and others that study or train abroad. In the future, Online Linguistic Support will be extended to all the EU official languages.

If you are leaving for an Erasmus+ mobility activity, you will receive a login and a password to access the Online Linguistic Support platform.
