What is Erasmus + International Credit Mobility?

The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) Programme supports the mobility of individuals enrolled or employed at a higher education institution (HEI), from a Programme Country to a Partner Country (https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/node/3_en) or vice versa, namely:

- Student mobility for studies, open to short cycle, first cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) or second cycle (Master or equivalent) students, as well as third cycle doctoral candidates. The mobility period can last from 3 months (or one academic term) to 12 months.

- Student mobility for traineeships, open from call 2018 to short cycle, first cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) or second cycle (Master or equivalent) students, as well as third cycle doctoral candidates. The mobility period can last from 2 to 12 months.

- Staff mobility for teaching for academic staff to teach at a partner higher education institution (HEI) abroad. The mobility period can last from 5 days to 2 months.

- Staff mobility for training for teaching and non-teaching staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences), job shadowing, observation periods and/or training at a partner HEI. The mobility period can last from 5 days to 2 months.

The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Programme promotes full academic recognition of studies and supports cross-border cooperation between higher education institutions. It brings students the possibility to study abroad with credit recognition at the home university.
