Université Savoie Mont Blanc is a holder of the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education.

Erasmus+ promotes the European and international mobility of students and staff through the implementation of mobility programmes, aiming to strengthen their skills and increase their employability.

ERASMUS+ Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)

The Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) is a programme that combines :

  • online learning activities (between transnational and transdisciplinary student teams)

ET

  • a period of physical mobility lasting between 5 and 30 days.

It uses innovative teaching and learning methods.

A BIP can be organised around challenges and is an added value compared to existing conventional programmes.

A USMB student participating in a BIP will complete part of the programme remotely and will have a short mobility within the country of the organising university.

Participating in an Erasmus + intensive programme allows students to :

  • develop/reinforce knowledge in the theme of the proposed academics
  • develop skills and competences related to the experience of working in multicultural teams and mobility
  • increase foreign language skills (English and Romance languages)

Finally, the academics programme as well as the mobility period allow participants to develop intercultural skills by immersing themselves in international academic and professional contexts.

Students participating in the intensive programme receive Erasmus+ funding on a flat rate basis:

  • 70 per day for a stay of 5 to 14 days to finance your accommodation and living expenses
  • 50€ per additional day for any stay longer than 30 days,
  • A financial supplement and/or travel package may be provided for students with fewer opportunities and for those who use less polluting modes of transport.

Students who participate in an intensive programme and fulfil the criteria for validation of the programme will receive ECTS credits for the distance learning part of the programme as well as the mobility period.

These credits, if not integrated in the academics curriculum, are optional.

International Mobility for ERASMUS+ Credits

International Credit Mobility (ICM) is a mobility project between Erasmus+ countries (EU Member States) and third countries not associated with the programme.

  • SMS Student Mobility forStudies: lasting from 2 to 12 months. These mobilities can take place in the form of a hybrid mobility combining virtual or remote activities AND a physical mobility of at least 2 months.
    Shorter durations of mobility are also possible in a hybrid format with a minimum physical mobility of 5 to 30 days.
  • Staff mobility for Teaching Assignment (STA): lasting from 5 days to 2 months, excluding travel, with a minimum of 8 teaching hours per week to or from the participating countries.
  • Staff TrainingMobility(STT ) academics: lasting from 5 days to 2 months, excluding travel, for a period of work experience or observation in a higher education institution. Eligible activities can be structured courses, targeted language training.

Concerning doctoral students:
Doctoral students with a teaching contract may go on teaching or study visits at academics.
As students, doctoral students can go on study mobility; these mobilities can be carried out in hybrid form (distance + face-to-face).
In contrast to other students, they have the possibility to carry out a short physical mobility between 5 and 30 days without the need to combine it with virtual or distance activities.

Please note: conferences are not eligible.

The USMB responded to the first call for applications for the MIC project in 2015. Since then, each application aims to strengthen privileged relationships with a limited number of universities.

The first partner country was Russia, and more specifically with establishments in Siberia.

A lasting presence also in Canada, a popular destination for USMB students. This choice is in line with the strategy of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, which recognises Quebec as a priority area for the development of multidisciplinary relations.

In Asia, Laos and Japan. Seeking new partners to strengthen inbound student mobility and outbound teaching mobility, with the aim of facilitating the transfer of skills.

For the USMB, the 2018 MICs have been extended to 4 new countries:

  • Argentina: a recognised quality university system. Several components already have close research or academics relationships with Argentinean universities.
  • Burkina Faso: the city of Chambéry has privileged links with this geographical area, which has been identified as a priority by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region. This country is also part of the USMB's Francophone network.
  • Ukraine: one of the most attractive countries for software development, with a strong scientific tradition linked to its renowned physics centres.
  • Vietnam: close collaboration in research already exists. Vietnamese students are interested in bilingual training, particularly in disciplines covered by the USMB. Their participation in mobility could lead to the creation of new double degrees.

The funding attached to these mobilities is European flat-rate.

The MIC scholarship corresponds to a travel package + individual support (5 days minimum + 2 days of travel).

Only the "outward" journey is taken into account in the distance calculation, but the corresponding rate covers the costs associated with the return journey.

  • An "Individual Support" grant (5 days minimum + 2 days travel)
 Daily amount
STT or STA outgoing  180 €
 Incoming TWU or ATS  160 €

Terms of payment of grants to USMB staff (mobility for academics and/or teaching)

  • Payment of a grant directly to the staff concerned, who will then take charge of their mobility (reservation and purchase of travel tickets, hotels, etc.)
  • An advance of 100% of the travel package and 75% of the individual support will be paid before the mobility, the balance of 25% of the individual support will be paid at the end of the mobility upon receipt of supporting documents (certificate of attendance + Erasmus+ final report)
  • Depending on the certificate of attendance, for shorter actual mobility: downward adjustment of the number of days of stay financed (! minimum eligible duration = 5 days). For longer actual mobility, there will be no upward financial adjustment.

All mobilities must be validated by the component to which the student belongs.

The teaching and academics mobilities must be the subject of a final report, especially as they are subject to control by the European Commission and/or the Erasmus+ France Agency.

The international relations relays of the components (managers and IR correspondents) must send all the completed and signed documents indicated below to the Erasmus + Unit of the International Relations Department

  • Teaching mobility (STA out and in) for outgoing and incoming students: Pedagogical contract for full teaching mobilities , signed by the 3 parties (teacher OR foreign company staff + USMB component + host university OR foreign company).
  • Mobility of academics (STT): Pedagogical contract for the mobilities of academics complete staff, signed by the 3 parties (staff, component, host institution). This last document is currently being finalised and will be accepted.

Staff will then receive a Mobility Contract drawn up by the DRI and signed by the Vice-President in charge of International Relations. This document will specify the number of days of mobility and the amount of the grant allocated. It must be completed and signed by the person before leaving on a mobility assignment.

  • Certificate of attendance
    To be signed on site (except for travel days) and sent to the Erasmus + Unit of the DRI (Marcoz site).
  • Teaching mobility report or academics.
    To be completed online. Staff will receive an access link directly from the European Commission's database.

In Senegal

Teaching mobility in November 2011 in Senegal.

Three staff members of the professional degree "Sound and Image Techniques" of the IUT of Chambéry went to to the Ecole Supérieure Polytechnique of the Cheick Anta Diop University (UCAD) in Dakar, Senegal.

The objective of the intervention was to initiate the implementation of audiovisual teaching at the University of Dakar, notably through a concrete learning situation and the production of an audiovisual project.s audiovisual project.
