Programme aimed at bachelor's-degree students.
The programme allows students to complete part of the studies in which they are registered abroad, for a maximum period of one academic year, without having to move their transcript back a year, by recognising the modules completed.
This works bilaterally, through agreements with each institution, accommodating at our university a similar number of students to those who go abroad.
For each flow of mobility, the centre of origin or the receiving centre must belong to a Member State of the European Union, the countries making up the European Economic Area or to an associated country from Central or Eastern Europe or Turkey.
It is also essential that before any period of study abroad the destination university has signed a bilateral agreement under the programme framework, including the number of exchange students and the field of study
The Erasmus Programme offers students the chance to study abroad for a set period (normally a semester or nine months) with specific scholarships or grants.
Credits approved abroad are fully recognised and validated in application of the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer System). Agreements signed by the University of Girona allow students in the Faculty of Law to complete part of their education in different countries that generally offer their courses in French, English, German, Portuguese or Italian.
Applications for Erasmus placements are usually open for roughly the whole month of December. These placements are allocated to students taking into account the grades in their academic record in cases where there are more applicants than placements at a particular destination.
To formalise the application students need to go to the Mobout platform. They can request up to six options.
1. What do you need to do if you are selected?
2. How are subjects qualified and assessed?
On finishing your study abroad, the subjects equivalent to those that you enrolled on with the University of Girona will be assessed so that the credit transfer can be completed.
3. Which subjects must I have read and which are most recommended for studying abroad?
All type of subjects can be convalidated, provided the corresponding equivalent is offered at the destination university.
4. Who looks for my accommodation:
All destination universities have staff who are responsible for orientating Erasmus students when it comes to academic queries and helping them find accommodation, student flats or halls of residence, shared or individual rooms. You will find the information you need to rent accommodation in the details sent to your address by the destination university or on their website.
Regarding language courses, it is important to complete them as they will help you to integrate into the university and into your new environment. In some universities, although classes are given in English, you have the option to study the preferred institutional language of the country (e.g. Dutch in the Netherlands).
