Student Mobility

The Mobility takes place between the 1st of June of current year and the 30th of September of the following year. Students have two options within Student mobility:
 

Student Mobility for Studies (SMS): A study period abroad at a partner Higher Education Institution (HEI)

To ensure high-quality mobility activities with maximum impact on the students, the mobility activity has to be compatible with the student’s degree-related learning and personal development needs. The study period abroad must be part of the student's degree programme requirements at CyI. Study periods are from three to 12 months (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned) and a study period abroad may combine a traineeship period. 

The host organization must be a HEI awarded with ERASMUS CHARTER (ECHE), which has signed the inter-institutional agreement with CyI. 

For mobility in partner countries, the organizations must be HEIs recognized by competent authorities, which have signed an inter-institutional agreement with CyI before the mobility takes place. 

HEIs with which CyI has an agreement: Universita’ Degli Studi Di Napoli “L’Orientale”, West University of Timosoara, Fachhochschule St. Polten, Universita Degli Studi di Perugia, University of Bremen, University of the Aegean, University of Amsterdam, Polytechnic Torino, University of Helsinki, University of Catania.
 

Student Mobility for Traineeship (SMT):  A traineeship (work placement) abroad in an enterprise or any other relevant workplace


Traineeships are supported also within a maximum of one year after the student’s graduation. This also includes the 'assistantships' for student teachers. Wherever possible, the traineeships should be an integrated part of the student's study programme.

 
In the case of mobility between Programme and Partner countries, the sending organization must be a HEI awarded with ERASMUS CHARTER (ECHE) or a Partner Country HEI recognized by competent authorities, which has signed inter-institutional agreement before the mobility takes place. Traineeships period can be from two to 12 months.
 
The receiving organisation can be any public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth. For example, it can be: 
• a public or private, a small, medium or large enterprise (including social enterprises);
• a public body at local, regional or national level;
• a social partner or other representative of working life, including chambers of commerce, craft/professional associations and trade unions; 
• a research institute;
• a foundation;
• a school/institute/educational centre (at any level, from pre-school to upper secondary education, and including vocational education and adult education);
• a non-profit organisation, association, NGO;
• a body providing career guidance, professional counselling and information services;
• a Programme
 
A student may participate in mobility totaling up to 12 months maximum per each cycle of study, independently of the number and type of mobility activities. Participation with a zero-grant from EU funds counts as well towards this maximum duration: 
 
The duration of a traineeship by recent graduates counts towards 12 months maximum of the cycle during which they apply for the traineeship. The application should be submitted during their last year of study.  The graduates must carry out and complete their traineeship abroad within one year of their graduation. 
 
Currently we have two student mobility openings available for the academic year 2019-2020.
 
 

Procedure for Student Mobility

 
The Office of Graduate Studies sends out a Call for applications at the beginning of June, after receiving funding confirmation for the new academic year from the  National Agency. 
 
Interested students fill in the application form indicating three mobility destinations in order of preference and submit it to the Office of Graduate Studies within the deadline specified (typically around the end of June). 
 
The ERASMUS Committee will evaluate applications against the set selection criteria and in accordance with the allocated budget.  The Office of Graduate Studies communicates the outcome of selection to applicants in writing.
