UNITA in practice
Thanks to virtual mobility, you can integrate 100% online courses offered by other universities in the alliance into your curriculum.
The courses are assessed and lead to the award of ECTS credits.
This may allow a student, in agreement with his or her academic supervisor, to
- to replace a course given at the USMB, in order to slightly adapt a course at academics, or even to follow a course in a foreign language;
- to take a course for general knowledge;
- complete an educational contract (for an international student).
Interested students should fill out a form and send it to their component.
Applications for the May 2021 call are now closed. Another call will be launched at the beginning of the academic year 2021 - 2022 (precise dates to be announced).
The Unita alliance is setting up an international rural internship programme.
Indeed, Unita wishes to promote the professionalisation of students while participating in the development of the territories of the alliance, which are largely rural and mountainous.
These internships, lasting from 3 weeks to 2 months, take place during the summer. They are intended for students who have already validated at least 90 ECTS credits and have the required language level (at least English B1 or Spanish B1 depending on the destination).
All costs related to travel, accommodation and meals are covered (as specified for each course).
A selection of internships has been made by the partner universities, and places are reserved for USMB students. The offers are very varied and concern many fields of study.
Applications for the summer of 2021 are now closed.
By undertaking a physical mobility in one of the alliance's universities, you benefit from the innovative Flexibility Window.
Thanks to this system, you are completely free to choose up to 20% of your courses abroad (6 ECTS per semester) without this being a reason to block your departure.
In this context, your educational adviser makes recommendations to ensure the coherence of your course and to prevent your choices from compromising your further studies.
If you decide not to follow these recommendations - which is your right thanks to the Flexibility Window- you must, however, certify in writing that you have read them.

UNITA: building for the future
With UNITA, the USMB is co-building and integrating a European university, supported by the European Union.
The USMB and the other partner universities aim to achieve an unprecedented level of cooperation at all levels of organization and in all areas of activity: academics, research and innovation.
The alliance will bring together over 160,000 students and 13,000 staff.
This European university will take the form of a federative structure in which each institution will retain its autonomy. It will offer European degrees to its students and facilitate exchanges between researchers, staff and territories. The objective is to achieve 50% mobility within the alliance in 10 years.
