The Erasmus + Charter program
The objective of the Erasmus+ Charter is to enable students and staff of the institution to undertake a period of study, training or internship abroad in order to develop their linguistic and professional skills, to promote employability on the national, European and international market and to exchange good practices between institutions.
By signing the Charter, INSEEC commits itself to contribute to the modernization and internalization of higher education and to work in accordance with the priorities set by the European Union in this field:
- improve the quality of higher education;
- to strengthen the quality of education through mobility and cross-border collaboration;
- to link higher education, research and the professional world with a view to regional development;
- improve governance and financial management.
By joining the Erasmus program, INSEEC confirms that the European system is part of the school’s international strategy.
“Holá, my name is Rachel, 3rd year student and gone on a 1 year academic exchange to Madrid since September 🇪🇸
Already halfway through my journey I didn’t see the time pass! 😅 Even though 2020 was special for everyone I was lucky enough to be able to leave and enjoy all the benefits of Spanish life🙏🏼
My days consist of :
✔ study, whether at university or at home (alternating face-to-face and online weeks) 👩💻
✔ practice Spanish (and especially English) with students from all over Europe 🌍
✔ eat tapas and enjoy the Madrid nightlife 🍻
I take advantage of the many holidays to visit the cities around Madrid and organize with my 9 roommates small trips to Spanish cities 👀
This year of Erasmus is probably the most enriching that I could live today. Whether it is at the level of studies with a different approach of the taught programs or then human thanks to the meetings I had the chance to make. 🤗
My only advice: studying in Madrid is the best choice to make for your 3rd year!!!”
“Cześć! I’m Amina
I am a 3rd year student of the BBA INSEEC and I had the chance to go and study for a year in the beautiful city of Poznań, Poland from where I am writing this testimonial🇵🇱
Although I knew nothing about Poland, I wanted to go on an adventure, out of personal challenge and curiosity. Indeed, I wanted to go to an unknown country where the culture, the way of life, the architecture, the language are different from France in order to acquire a new knowledge and to forge myself personally.
In the end, I was delighted and fell under the spell of this lively and historically rich student city. The architecture is a mixture of grey buildings, due to the legacy of the post-war communist era, and beautiful coloured skyscrapers, where capitalism has left its mark.
Life in this student town is friendly and very active, with many activities and parties🥂🕺🏽The atmosphere is very friendly and the people are open-minded. I was able to meet some great people, with whom I have made some very strong connections and I continue to make some very interesting encounters from all over Europe. With some of them, I travel every 2-3 weeks to discover the diverse and wonderful landscapes of Poland. So far we have visited several interesting cities in Poland such as Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw, Gdynia, Torun, Sopot. And in particular Zakopane, a town on the border with Slovakia, where we had the opportunity to ski, ice skate, sledge, hike and visit the charming surrounding villages! ⛷⛸🛷And I plan to make the most of this beautiful country until July!
I have never been so fulfilled and happy! Poznan is a very pleasant and cosmopolitan student city. I strongly encourage you to go. In my opinion, Poland is a country that deserves to be known! You will be enchanted by this exceptional and enchanting experience! ☀️”

ERASMUS+ for students
You will have to anticipate, think and build your international project. Our teams are at your disposal to answer your questions and help you with your study or internship project abroad (interview by appointment).
The Erasmus+ program is open to all students enrolled at INSEEC, regardless of nationality or income.
How to prepare your study mobility?
Students can obtain a scholarship to study in another European institution, starting in the second year of study, for a period of between 3 and 12 months. Students benefit from 12 months of mobility, studies and/or internships, per study cycle (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate). The period of study at university gives rise to the recognition of ECTS credits acquired for the passage to the next year (30 ECTS per semester).
How to prepare your internship mobility?
Students can opt for an internship in a company in another European country (from 2 to 12 months). Students benefit from 12 months of mobility, studies and/or internships, per study cycle (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate).
The internship period abroad is supervised by the school and the host company, which sign an internship agreement with the student.
Students are selected on the basis of academic criteria and motivation specific to the study and professional project.
Your obligations concerning an Erasmus+ mobility are the following:
- It is compulsory for students on internships or semesters to take the OLS language test before their departure and upon their return in order to measure the impact of their mobility on their language skills.

What are the rules for financing the stays?
The Erasmus + grant is a contribution which does not claim to cover the full costs of the projects. Recipient institutions are encouraged to seek other sources of funding (co-funding).
The European grant partially covers :
– Project management (“mobility organization” budget);
– The mobility of the participants, in the form of a monthly (student) or daily (staff) rate depending on the country of destination; the travel expenses of the staff, depending on the distance in kilometers;
– Any special needs, at actual cost (reserved for individuals with disabilities).
Special financial provisions are made for the so-called “ultra-peripheral” regions (including the Overseas Countries and Territories).
The establishment will pay the staff a financial envelope including :
|Groups of host countries||Daily rate until the 14th day of activity||Daily rate from the 15th day of activity|
|A: Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, United Kingdom||112 €||78 €|
|B: Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Romania, Turkey||98 €||69 €|
|C: Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Germany, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain||84 €||59 €|
|D: Croatia, Estonia, Lithuania, Slovenia||70 €||49 €|
Travel costs are calculated according to mileage bands:
Less than 100 Km : 0€.
100-499 Km : 180€.
500-1999 Km : 275€.
2000-2999 Km : 360€.
3000-3999 Km : 530€.
4000-7999 Km : 820€.
More than 8000 Km : 1500€.
Please note that mobility of less than 100 km is not covered by European funding.
Only the outward journey is taken into account in the calculation of the distance, but the corresponding rate covers the costs associated with the return journey.
