SPbPU is developing international cooperation through ERASMUS+ Credit Mobility Contest
February 2017 was the application deadline for ERASMUS+ Credit Mobility (ERASMUS + PROGRAMME: Key Action 1 – Mobility for learners and staff) projects designed to encourage academic and student mobility at SPbPU as part of cooperation with European partner-universities.
ERASMUS+ is a nonprofit program initiated by the EU to establish student and teacher exchange between EU countries, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, and Turkey. The program provides an opportunity to undertake a full-time course or a training course, or take up a teaching position at any college of the country involved in the project. The principle goal of the program is enhancing the quality of education in Europe, encouraging mobility and cultural exchange between students originating from EU and non-EU countries.
The program became available for Russian universities in 2015. Each approved application guarantees semester coverage of tuition and accommodation costs for degree students and one-week teaching experience for teachers including travel expenses.
In 2015 SPbPU participated in 8 Erasmus projects supported by the EU. The number of approved applications reached 17 in 2016.
In 2017 SPbPU has submitted 27 applications. The selection results will be announced this fall. Each approved application will initiate a student-teacher exchange between SPbPU and its partner-universities.
