Erasmus+ (European Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is a student and teacher exchange program between universities and major European schools. The European Lifelong Education and Training program (EFTLV) implements various actions, including Erasmus, which constitutes the Higher Education component.

The Erasmus + exchange program allows students in Higher Education, enrolled at least in License 2, to follow part of their course in a European university with which ULCO has signed a partnership agreement.

This mobility can extend from 3 months (minimum duration) to 12 months (maximum duration).For more information on Erasmus +, you can consult the website of the Agence Erasmus+ France / Education Formation

Erasmus+ Agreements

The conditions to be eligible

If the planned exchange is possible, the student can apply. To do so, it must meet certain conditions :

  • be registered with ISCID-CO and have fully validated a first year of License or equivalent level,
  • pay tuition fees to ISCID-CO;
  • have received authorization from the Director of International Relations and have signed a study contract;

To be able to leave, the selected candidates will however have to pass the current academic year.

There is no longer a nationality condition for participating in the Erasmus+ programme.

The language level required

Students completing an exchange must pass a first test after their selection and a second test upon returning from study-abroad in order to measure the improvement of language skills during the experience. This does not apply to native speakers.

Registration fees

You must be registered with ISCID-CO during the year of your study-abroad. You will pay the registration fees for ISCID-CO and you will be exempted from paying them at the host university. Registration is mandatory before departure.
The study contract / the learning agreement.


Study contract / learning agreement

The study contract is the basis of the exchange. It contains the details of the courses he will take at the host university. It will be signed by the president of the jury and the teacher in charge of the candidate’s training.

Your choice of courses will have to be made according to the diploma that you complete at ISCID-CO. You will have to complete 30 ECTS credits per semester.

You will have a maximum of one month, after your arrival, to finalize your study contract by striving to match it with the diploma prepared.


Any change to the initial study contract must be reported as soon as possible to the International Relations Department of ISCID-CO.


Accommodation conditions vary considerably from one university to another, but also from country to country. In addition, APL or ALS type housing assistance does not exist in the host country. In most cases, it will be the responsibility of the student to carry out the accommodation search by contacting the RI department of the host university.


Student supervision

Abroad, the student will be helped by the host university with regard to finding accommodation and language courses, for example, but he remains attached to ISCID-CO, in particular for national scholarships and graduation.


Academic recognition

Obtaining your year status will be done by validating the marks obtained abroad. It will be up to the jury of your program to assess your results.

At the end of your study abroad, the host university will provide the student with a certificate confirming that the program in the study contract has been followed, as well as a transcript. If the exams, or what takes their place, have been passed, the period of study abroad will be subject to full academic recognition.


The E.C.T.S.

To better appreciate the results between the different universities and guarantee you academic recognition, the European Union has set up a system called ECTS (European Credits Transfer System).

This system makes it easier to transfer grades and academic results from one establishment to another since there is a relative harmonization of grades. It also allows better information on study programs abroad and easier access to teaching at foreign universities.

ECTS will be applied in your study contract. This corresponds to the number of credits per subject chosen.
