Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the Erasmus+ KA1 International Mobility Programme.

This new mobility action, launched in 2015 by the European Commission, opens up new opportunities for students and university staff (academic and administrative).

Thanks to existing partnerships established between University of Poitiers (UP) and Parner countries Universities, the University will have the pleasure to welcome/send students, teaching and administrative staff from/to 25 universities (Colombia, Indonesia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Russia and Kazakhstan).

Scholarships, funded by European Commission for two years, will contribute to the internationalisaton of Higher Education Institutions (HEI) through the development of international exchanges.

A better knowledge of our respective academic offers, our teaching practices will allow us to enrich each other.

Such mobilities are great experiences at professional, cultural and personal level.

Our academic and administrative staff will have the opportunity to share good practices and to discover new educational systems.

Learning mobilities, in the framework of ECTS recognition, will offer the students an opportunity to value their diploma and acquire linguistic and transversal skills in order to facilitate their job market integration.

Erasmus + International Credit Mobility will help us to strenghten links in order to prepare ambitious cooperation programmes.

I wish this programme all the best and I’m confident in its success.
