Short Guide for Universities in the European Community Which Would Like To Prepare Thoroughly a New Student Mobility Programme Within the Framework of ERASMUS.
Commission of the European Communities, Brussels (Belgium).; ERASMUS Bureau, Brussels (Belgium).
This guide examines issues that should be taken into consideration by European universities when setting up an inter-university cooperation program for the first time. It contains a list of suggestions for the negotiation and preparatory phase of a student mobility program which, it is noted, is founded on the experience of numerous European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students (ERASMUS) participants. Areas discussed include the following: (1) planning exchanges; (2) academic recognition; (3) preparing students for their departure; (4) the formalities to be prepared for on arrival at the host university; (5) student's reception upon arrival; and (6) the financial management of the support received. Advice, offered in a separate column on most pages, includes the following: universities should select students well in advance, aim for year-long exchanges, plan linguistic training well in advance, and provide advanced briefing. It is noted that the guide only deals with student mobility programs and does not repeat the rules governing the allocation of ERASMUS financial support found in the Guidelines for Applicants, published by the Commission each year.
