Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the benefits of a study mobility?
- International student experience – Learn what it means to be a student in another European country. You will find that there are similar things to your ASE experience, but also many differences that will surprise you. The experience will give you a new perspective on your studies and will offer you the opportunity to experience other styles of teaching and learning.
- More independence – The experience of studying and living in another country will be a challenge: you have to deal with new and unfamiliar situations, to manage your time and budget, to learn to adapt to a new culture. Moreover, you have more freedom in choosing the courses you want to study.
- Powerful knowledge – Student life in a foreign country will give you an entirely different perspective than the one you acquire as a tourist. You will discover and understand what daily life means in the host country and you will learn to communicate with people from different cultures.
- Personal and professional achievements – Such experiences are not always easy, but once you overcome the initial difficulties, you will discover that in addition to studies, you can travel, have fun, meet many interesting people and to grow as a person. Besides, it will make a great addition to your future professional profile.
- How many times can I benefit from Erasmus+ ?
You can have an accumulated number of 12 months (360 days) of different Erasmus+ types of mobilities for each separate study cycle (Bachelor, Master, PhD).
- Will my studies be recognized?
Please note that the subjects you have to study there must comply to the subjects your coordinators have approved in your Learning Agreement or in your During the mobility agreement. In these agreements, your subjects have to cumulate a minimum of 30 ECTS/semester or 60 ECTS/year. If you study any other subject that is not on these agreements, it will not be taken into consideration. In light of these facts, note that:
- If you passed your mobility exams, your credits and grades will be fully recognized and equivalated (check the equivalence grid in the Regulation & templates section);
- If you failed some exams, you can choose with your faculty coordinator which exams with similar credits to take in the reexamination session from the courses that were being taught at ASE.
- Can I take the graduation exam at the host university?
Not unless you go to a double degree program. If there is no such double degree agreement, then the graduation exams take place exclusively at ASE (in this case, make sure you can come back from your mobility before the graduation examination).
- Can I choose any university of destination?
Yes, almost any university from the destinations offer. Erasmus+ study mobilities are based on bilateral cooperation agreements between institutions from the European Union or associated countries which hold the Erasmus+ Chart. Be aware that some domains are not applicable for all faculties.
- Can I improve my language skills before leaving?
Erasmus+ has a module for improving your language skills before and during your mobility, called Online Linguistic Support – OLS. You will receive information about how to login on it via email, after the selection.
- I do not fit any criteria for Erasmus+ for studies selection, are there any other options for me?
Yes, you can find an internship/volunteering project and then apply to be financed with an Erasmus+ grant of support for your mobility. For this type of mobility, the application procedure is different. More details at the Erasmus+ for Placements section from the menu.
- What obligations do I have after being selected?
Please consult the Post Selection Guides above this FAQ section.
- Where can I submit a testimonial?
If you came back from your mobility and you would like to share your experience to future generations of ASE students, send us a few pictures and a short story via email.
