Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2014, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The University Paul-Valéry (UPV) has been taking part to the Erasmus Programme since 1987. Historically, a large international student population has always had a strong representation (about a 5th part of the whole student population) Internationalisation actually forms one of the strategic pilars of the university policy. The Erasmus+ programme allows to address the student needs in terms of training as well as the staff ones regarding their teaching and training expectations. It contributes, in this way, to the international standing of the institution. In 2014/15, the UPV has sent 248 people in mobility stays, including 210 students and 38 staff members. Among the students, 173 have realised a student mobility and 37 a placement mobility. Among the staff members, 33 have realised a teaching mission and 37 a training mission. 72% of the student participants were beneficiaries of scholarships on social criteria. Among the most obvious impacts of the programme, we can point out: • The development of the student transversal skills, allowing them to approach their education and their future professional life with more maturity. • The strengthening of the professional skills for the staff members having realised a training mobility. • The intensification of cooperations with the partner universities, observed by the staff members having realised a teaching mobility. Finally, the participation to the programme has encouraged the whole UPV university community to intend continuously to better the quality of the teaching and to resolve more and more precisely the pedagogical issues generated by the significative presence of international students. At the same time, the administrative procedures have become more and more efficient year after year, and this has allowed an optimisation of the support for outgoing and incoming students.
