Ca’ Foscari University (UNIVE), among all traditional international mobility programs, offers to international students also the mobility opportunities offered by the new Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Program (ICM), entirely funded by the European Union, with the objective of promoting international mobility of students and staff from and to non EU countries.

At the moment there are two different active projects, both based on single country projects:

  • the first one has a financial envelope of € 786.810,00, covering the 2016-2018 period, and will end  mandatorily on 31/07/2018;
  • the second one has a financial envelope of € 301.840,00, covering the 2017-2019 period, and will end  mandatorily on 31/07/2019.

Partner countries, from which incoming students mobility will be possible, are:

  • Project 2016-2018 (mobility during the academic year 2017-2018): Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Ukraine, United States and Vietnam;
  • Project 2017-2019 (mobility during the academic year 2018-2019): Armenia, Kosovo, Ukraine, Vietnam.

Activities

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) scholarship is primarily finalised to obtain academic credits abroad and it is awarded for full time activities (study, preparation of final works). Erasmus+ ICM allows students to live challenging cultural experiences in EU Countries, to familiarise with new Higher Education Systems, to improve the knowledge of at least one EU Country language, to meet foreign people, while participating actively in the internationalisation process of Higher Education Institutions involved and of their own academic curriculum. During the Erasmus+ mobility, which must be continued and without  interruptions, it’s not possible to take exams at the home University.

Benefits

Students have the opportunity to follow academic courses and to use the facilities of UNIVE at the same conditions of UNIVE’s students, without paying any fee to the host Institution. Furthermore, the Erasmus+ ICM project provides a scholarship of € 850,00 per month and a round-trip ticket to Venice. The amount of the Erasmus+ grant will be transferred in full, after the subscription of the Grant Agreement, within 30 days from the beginning of the mobility. UNIVE will provide assistance to find accommodation and for the release of visa and stay permit when necessary. During the whole mobility, Ca’Foscari will provide support through its International Relations Office.
