What does it mean to be ERASMUS+ student?
An Erasmus student is the one who has been selected to pursue part of their official studies in a European university with which UNIR has signed an exchange agreement within the programme. The student will not get any degree from the host university and the subjects studied there will be recognized by others established in the UNIR curriculum, so they will remain UNIR students.
Therefore, before their departure the student must be enrolled in the subjects in UNIR and those will be recognized by the subjects studied in the host university.
The mobility of students for Erasmus+ studies implies the possibility of a stay abroad for UNIR students to continue their studies in a foreign institution of higher education during a specific period of time.
The objectives of the mobility for students to study are:
- To enable students to benefit educationally, linguistically and culturally from the experience of learning in other European countries.
- Promote cooperation between institutions and to enrich the educational environment of host institutions.
- Contribute to the creation of a community of young, well-qualified and open minded future professionals with international experience.
- Facilitate the transfer of credits and the recognition of stays abroad, through the ECTS system, or a compatible system of credits.
It consists in pursuing a period of study in a higher education institution in other European country. At the end of this period UNIR will academically recognize the studies. During this period, the student will be exempt for paying tuition fees at the host institution.
Students in high education institutions which have an Erasmus University ter. The student must receive a written learning agreement concerning to the curriculum which he will study in the host country. At the end of the stay abroad, the host institution shall send to the Erasmus student and the home university a certificate indicating that the student has finished the programme established and a report of the results.
