International Credit Mobility ICM

Mobility schemes between European and non European Higher Education Institutions (HEIs)

  • By concluding an inter-institutional agreement, institutions from Partner and Programme countries can send students of all three cycles (Bachelor, Master, PhD) for short-term mobility (up to 12 months) to institutions in Programme or Partner countries.
  • HEIs from Partner and Programme countries participating in International Credit Mobility must recognise the credits earned by students while in the EU or in a Partner country. These credits count towards their degree at home.
  • Staff can also receive grants for teaching or training assignments (5 days to 2 months) at a European HEI or at a Partner country HEI.
  • Institutions from Erasmus+ Programme Countries can submit a mobility project application that involves HEIs from Partner countries to the National Agency in their country.

How to apply

HEIs from Partner Countries interested in taking part in credit mobility should contact the European Programmes Office at for further information.
