INSEEC Graduate School, signatory of the Erasmus + Charter

Erasmus + aims to give students and staff the opportunity to spend time abroad to improve their skills and increase their employability.

The Erasmus + Charter

The objective of the Erasmus+ Charter is to enable students and staff from the school to carry out a period of study, training or a placement abroad in order to develop their language and professional skills, to improve their employability on the national, European and international markets and to exchange good practices between institutions.

The International Relations Department manages student mobility and manages faculty mobility jointly with Research. The Placement and Corporate Relations Department manages mobility involving placements.

Teams from these two departments at our three sites (Paris-Bordeaux-Lyon) are available to help you with guidance in your choice of partner university, courses and company and to define your career objectives.

Who can take part?

The Erasmus+ programme is open to the following categories of people in participating countries:

  • Students in higher education;
  • Higher education personnel;
  • Private companies.

The Erasmus + programme

Mobility for study, training and apprenticeship within the European Area is enhanced, at
every stage of life and for every level of education.

The Erasmus + programme

Below you will find information relating to mobility for Study or Placements in the context of
the Erasmus+ programme:

Mobility for study and placements

To obtain your degree from INSEEC Graduate School, you must demonstrate international experience either by studying at a foreign university or by doing a placement abroad. This is important for your CV, and for preparing for your first job by demonstrating professional and international experience.

The study period at a foreign university contributes to the ECTS credits required to move onto the next academic year (30 ECTS per semester). A company placement leads to the awarding of ECTS credits in accordance with examination rules.

How to participate


The Erasmus+ programme is open to any student registered at INSEEC Graduate School, regardless of nationality.

Students can obtain a grant to study in another European establishment, from the second year of their course and for a period of between 3 and 12 months.

To study abroad:

You can apply to the destinations and universities with whom we have a partnership depending on which campus you are studying at (Paris – Bordeaux – Lyon). The partners must also be signatories to the Erasmus+ Charter.

To do a placement abroad:

Students may opt to do a placement in a company in another European country (3 to 12 months).

A placement carried out abroad is supervised by INSEEC and the host company who draw up a tripartite placement agreement with the student.

Students’ obligations

Those who benefit from Erasmus+ mobility have the following obligations:
Before leaving and on your return you must carry out an OLS language test in order to measure the impact of the mobility on your language skills.

You must send us:
– Your mobility contract (Study or Placement) signed and stamped by your host university,
– Your learning agreement/study contract or training contract signed and stamped by your host university or company together, where applicable, with the modification sheet duly filled in and signed
– Your arrival form signed and stamped by your host establishment

The Erasmus+ teaching mobility programme gives you the opportunity to carry out a teaching mission in one of our European partner universities (ECHE signatory located in one of the participating countries). Any permanent member of faculty at INSEEC SBE, regardless of nationality, can participate in this Erasmus+ programme.

You may be invited to teach courses as part of the regular programmes of the host establishment. The International department regularly sends you all the invitations to seminars, events and programmes organised by our partner universities and is available to help you organise your travel to and stay in a foreign university.

The stay must last a minimum of two days, with a minimum of eight hours of teaching. It must not exceed two months.
Before your departure, you must fill in the “teacher mobility kit” that you will find on our digital campus. This document must be signed by you, INSEEC SBE and the host establishment. Originals of signatures are required. At the end of your stay, you must ask your host establishment to fill in and sign the attendance certificate that you will also find on the digital campus.

On your return, you will receive an email from the European Commission with a link to the final report that you must submit online. You have 30 days from reception of this email to complete the report. You must also send the international relations department and research department proof of all your mission-related expenses: air and train tickets, receipts for accommodation and meals… Our partner universities are listed on the Internet site.

It is essential that you request a European health insurance card from the health insurance administration. It is free and valid for one year.

For any questions relating to basic and complementary health insurance and reimbursement of your medical costs, please contact the HR department.


The rules for financing mobility are as follows:

The Erasmus + grant is a contribution which does not pretend to cover the whole cost of projects. Recipient establishments are encouraged to seek other sources of finance (co-financing).
The European grant partly covers:

– Project management (“organisation of mobility” budget);

– The mobility of participants, in the form of a monthly (student) or daily (personnel) amount that depends on the destination country; travel costs for personnel depending on the distance in kilometres;

– Possible specific requirements, at actual cost (reserved for handicapped individuals).

Distance calculator:

Specific financial provisions exist for so-called “ultra-peripheral” destinations (including overseas countries and territories).

The establishment will pay personnel as follows:

Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom
Daily rate up to the 14th day of activity: 119€
