Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
Generally, quantitative and qualitative objectives of the project, as described in the grant agreement and the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education have been achieved . In particular we have noticed, even for this year, a growing interest on the part of outgoing students, with a significant increase in applications. The administrative Office have been forced to prepare a public list of participant, according to their curriculum and marks, to find an order of leaving. At the end each student has partecipate to the Erasmus project, with a number of months reduced to give the possibility at all students to leave. The partecipation in mobility is rewarded with a timely recognition of credits earned abroad.
ECTS is the system of academic credits used by the institution (Credits). This greatly facilitates the recognition of study abroad. Outgoing students, before leaving, compile their learning agreement with the collaboration of the professor in charge of the department, the Erasmus Coordinator. The Learning Agreement must be approved by the Erasmus Office both of the sending and receiving Institution. The recognition takes into account both the subjects choosen and the ECTS, in relation to the mobility period, as determined in learning stipulated. As for the mobility of the Traineeship program, stipulated in the Traineeship agreement and certified by the transcript of work, training must be recognized in the field of the study program reserved for work placements with a reasonable number of credits in accordance with the mobility period. When the student graduates, all this is also recognized in the Diploma Supplement. Normally the objective of students mobility is to make 30 credits per semester and 60 in the full academic year. Of course there are problems linked to the impossibility of having in-depth information of programs related to courses of some host universities, for this reason we have managed learning agreement with a minimum of flexibility, giving to students, when needed, time to check and verify, once arrived in the host institution, if everithing is suitable for their training. This can be considered a frequent problem, but easily overcome. Find the right partner for Traineeship is the real problem, first of all because the lists provided by the organizations hardly contain partners compatible with the specificity of visual arts. However, without hiding some typical difficulties of this type of mobility, we have several students who have found in Traineeship mobility a sort of passport to get a job abroad, and after several years, still well placed in other European countries.
