Musikene has been taking an active part in the Erasmus Programme since 2003-2004, developing a course of action that involves cooperation and mobility on an international level. We try to promote cooperation among competent higher educational establishments with this programme within the European framework and to work together in order to make progress in different educational projects via different approaches, albeit ones which complement each other and help to provide students with the finest musical and personal education possible.
Entering the Erasmus Programme means entering the Permanent Learning Programme. You can find further information about this via the following links:
Charter and Policy
Musikene is currently promoting the mobility of students, teachers and administrative and service staff.
Mobility involves pursuing a period of study at a higher educational establishment in another European country. At the end of this period, the student’s institution of origin will recognise the studies completed, and during this period the student will be exempt from payment of academic fees at the host institution. Students from higher educational establishments who are in possession of an Erasmus University Card will be able to take part.
The student must receive a study agreement in writing about the syllabus they will be following in the host country. At the end of their stay abroad, the host institution must send the Erasmus student and their institution of origin a certificate proving that they have completed the agreed programme, together with a report containing results. Aid for Erasmus students is compatible with any other aid or national loan.
The aims of Erasmus student mobility are as follows:
- To enable students to gain educational, linguistic and cultural benefit from the learning experience in other European countries.
- To promote cooperation among institutions and enrich the educational environment of host institutions.
- To help create a community of highly-qualified young people and future professionals with open minds and international experience.
- To facilitate the transfer of credits and recognition of overseas attachments via the ECTS system or some other compatible system of credits.
The duration of mobility is a minimum 3 and a maximum 12 months.
The aim of the aid received by the student from the European Commission is to help defray any additional costs deriving from student mobility (e.g. upkeep, travel and accommodation, etc.).
Teaching staff mobility
The aims of Erasmus teaching staff mobility are as follows:
- To enable students who are unable to take part in a mobility programme to benefit from the knowledge and experience of academic staff from higher educational establishments in other European countries.
- To promote the exchange of competences and experience in pedagogic methods.
- To encourage higher educational establishments to broaden and enrich the variety and content of the courses they offer.
The features of this course of action are as follows:
The main activity is the teaching provided by a lecturer from a higher educational establishment or staff from another higher educational establishment in a partner country, even though other activities may be developed apart from this.
Teaching staff from higher educational establishments who are in possession of an Erasmus University Card or company staff will be able to take part.
Teaching staff who take part in a mobility programme must belong to the department or faculty of the host institution. This implies that:
- Teaching staff mobility is based on inter-institutional agreements.
- Partner higher educational establishments must agree prior to the overseas attachment as to the syllabus that will be followed by visiting lecturers.
Mobility for training
This involves the mobility of non-teaching staff from a higher educational establishment to another partner higher educational establishment.
The aim is to enable beneficiaries to benefit from the experiences and good practices pursued by the partner institution and to improve the skills required of their current job. The main activity involves a brief stay at the partner institution that can be referred to in various ways: brief service assignments, observation of professionals, study visits, etc.
Teaching and non-teaching staff from higher educational establishments who are in possession of an Erasmus University Card will be able to take part.
The higher educational establishment of origin is responsible for selection.
A work plan accepted by the institution of origin and host institution or by the company must be submitted for the purpose of being granted aid. This plan must include at least the following: the global objective and specific objectives, the results that are expected to be obtained from the training or learning activities and a programme for the training period.
