Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

CONTEXT The CESMD is one of the 15 French Higher Education Institutions in Music, Dance, Theater, accredited by the Ministry of Culture and Communication ("Pôles d'enseignement supérieur du spectacle vivant", CNSMD de Paris et Lyon, CEFEDEM). Depending on the years, the CESMD welcomes 80 to 90 students. Study programs: - The « Diplôme national supérieur professionnel de musicien » (DNSPM) is an undergraduate degree (Bachelor in performance, duration: 3 years). It is linked to an academic diploma ("Licence de musicologie") delivered by the University of Poitiers or Tours (since September 2015). It is by now almost exclusively in the framework of this program that the students go on mobility. - The « Diplôme d’État (DE) de professeur de musique » is a professional diploma, required for teaching in most public and private music schools in France. (Degree in instrumental and vocal teaching, duration: 2 years). Most of the students add this program to their DNSPM study, from the 2nd or 3rd year onwards. This degree is the major professionalization tool for the students: most of them find a position in the conservatoires and music schools (public or private). - Master program “Music: research and ensemble practice” (Early Music) This program is offered in partnership with the University of Poitiers, which delivers the degree. Teachers’ status: The great majority of the teachers have a part-time position at the CESMD, and all of them have other professional activities, as teachers (in music schools) or as artists. GOALS – RESULTS - IMPACT The objectives set in the Erasmus strategic statement were to stabilize and improve the students’ mobility flow, and to develop the teachers’ and staff mobility. Mobilities in the academic year 2014-2015: - 3 SMS, DNSPM students - 3 STA: teaching mobility With such a small number of mobile individuals, statistics are difficult to analyze. However, and in spite of difficulties, the amount of mobilities is stable, and globally presents a slightly ascending curve. The impact of the project is overall positive at both institutional and individuals’ (students, teachers, staff) levels: The satisfaction of the participants contributes to a general feeling of internationalization of the school, that is considered as a reality by everyone. The regularity and the increasing number of in-coming students develops an openmindness for international among all the students, even those who don’t participate to the Erasmus+ program : further studies projects, professional mobility projects, etc.
