The 2017/18 call for international student mobility applications gets off to a flying start

An information session ons 24 October for students interested in mobility visits was transmitted to all URV campuses. Students can take advantage of the URV’s more than 700 international mobility agreements

Once again the call for applications for international mobility studies has been announced and will enable successful students to undertake a study visit organised by the URV’s International Center during the 2017/18 academic year.

Students can apply for a place on the Erasmus+ for studies and Erasmus+ for traineeships programmes at other European institutions participating in the Erasmus+ programme. They can also apply for MOU studies and traineeships outside of Europe, the ISEP exchange programme with US universities, and, for the first time, the Erasmus+ International programme, whereby students can travel to universities in non-European countries such as Japan, Australia, Moldavia and Kazakhstan that are associated with the Erasmus+ programmes and that have a specific agreement with the URV.

At the same time, the call for applications to the international mobility programme has been announced and will be extended until September 2017.

Students were able to learn about these various possibilities through an information session in which the International Center described the characteristics of each programme, explained the online application process and answered students’ questions.

The session was transmitted live to each URV campus so that students could obtain information and ask questions. It is thought that more than 450 people attended.

At the end of the session the International Center handed out its I’moving prizes for which students were asked to produce a one-minute video describing their mobility experiences. This year’s winner, Isabel Fadón, is a student on the Bachelor’s Degree in Advertising and Public Relations; she completed her traineeship in Florence and won a prize of €500. The activity formed part of the URV’s 25th anniversary celebrations and each participant offered their congratulations to the URV in their videos.
