ERASMUS+ : OUR ENGAGEMENTS

The EESPIG area of the Faculties of the Catholic University of Lille has obtained an Erasmus Charter allowing us to participate in the Erasmus+ programme.

By promoting mobility and cooperation projects in Europe, the Erasmus+ programme makes it possible to strengthen the skills of all to provide greater employability, and to support innovation within education and training establishments and organisations, as well as their internationalisation, promoting transparent and consistent European-wide skills recognition and validation tools, and promoting cooperation between European and non-European countries.

The strengths of the ICL lie in its commitment to respond to societal challenges and its desire to gradually develop a “better life together” on campus so that each student finds their place while respecting others and their environment. The commitment was made to ensure the continuity of the good practices of the previous charter, but also to take new measures on our campus to strengthen the application of the principles of non-discrimination, transparency and inclusion of students and staff with the new Erasmus+ charter.

It is with this perspective that the ICL is committed to the integration, support and welcoming of all:

 1 – To contribute at all levels and in all places to both parity and diversity by offering transparent systems to promote success throughout the course. We guarantee fairness through transparent selection procedures based on academic results and/or on the artistic record, an interview and a language test.

A dedicated person in each establishment is responsible for preparing for administrative and educational formalities, and for guidance on safety rules. Specific support is provided according to needs (personal, financial, etc.)

For internships, the Career Centre of the Faculties and the internship service provide internship offers and give advice on CVs and cover letters. Both the terms of grant and the terms of internship are presented to the students, and the information is posted on the AGORA intranet. A dedicated contact person can be consulted for advice or specific requests.

2 – Guarantee international access for all

The “International At Home” programme was created to enable all students and administrative and teaching staff to benefit from internationalisation at home through events organised by the various establishments and student associations (international week, Erasmus Days, Europe Day, back to school forum, etc.). Our students are encouraged to be mobile (studies or internships) throughout their course and supported in their choice of mobility through departure preparation sessions, educational follow-up and meeting with our internationals. Student mobility is strongly encouraged, even compulsory for certain courses. It is facilitated by the granting of Erasmus+ grants, regional grants (Mermoz) as well as study grants offered internally within each establishment in order to promote mobility access for all.

3 – To promote the inclusion of international students

The integration of students arriving in the different establishments has been strengthened from a social, administrative and educational point of view.

4 – To provide financial support

The ICL works to promote equal opportunities and to promote accessibility to studies and mobility to the most disadvantaged, which is why it is essential to offer scholarships and financial aid for any student encountering difficulties in daily life (food, housing, health, transport) as well as adjusting contributions according to family income.

5 – Welcoming students with disabilities

The ICL pays particular attention to welcoming and assisting people and students with disabilities or who require specific support, including accessibility, accompaniment, resources provided to follow the course (Braille printer), measures taken for exams (1/3 more time), adjustment of exams, the presence of an MAH contact (Mission Accueil Handicap) and a doctor on campus, etc.

6 – Erasmus Specific Allowance + People with Disabilities (outgoing students)

The democratisation of the Erasmus+ programme is one of the objectives of the programme for the 2014-2020 period. Erasmus+ aims to promote equity and inclusion. Hence the European Commission and the countries participating in the programmes sought to support the mobility of people with disabilities, of whatever type (mental, physical, sensory or other).

The Erasmus+ programme provides specific funding to cover the costs generated by mobility abroad for participants in the programme with disabilities. A specific file including medical certificates and quotes must be created (FGES Erasmus+ correspondent, Clémence Roger).


STAFF MOBILITY UNDER THE ERASMUS+ PROGRAMME

In order to allow lifelong training and skills development for its staff, the establishments of the Catholic University of Lille encourage their employees to undertake teaching or training stays abroad, as well as participate in solidarity missions.

Information meetings are regularly offered to publicise existing arrangements, in particular within the framework of Erasmus or international solidarity (solidarity leave for example).

FOR TEACHERS OR DOCTORAL STUDENTS

Erasmus+ teaching assignment (STA- Staff Teaching Assignment) in a European partner university or establishment.

This involves giving courses (8 hours or more) integrated into the official programme of the establishment (Erasmus agreement signed beforehand), for a stay (excluding travel days) of 2 to 60 days on site.
If you plan to teach in an establishment that is not yet a partner, contact the FGES International Relations Office.

FOR ALL PERMANENT STAFF (TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL)

Training and discovery mission in a university, a company or a training organisation in a European country as part of the Erasmus+ programme (STT -Staff Training).

It is thus possible to participate in international weeks, observation courses, good practice exchanges or structured courses including language courses, with the exception of conferences, for a stay (excluding travel days) of 2 to 60 days on site.

FINANCING 19-20

The costs related to this mobility abroad are covered by the Erasmus+ programme according to scales established by the European Commission and subject to respecting the procedure set by the Directorate of International Relations and Communication of the Catholic University of Lille.
