International Credit Mobility (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate)
How does it work? Based on the partnerships between Moldovan and European universities. The list with effective agreements can be found at the International Relations Departments of the Higher Educations Institutions (HEIs) were the student is registered. It is a must for the Mobility period to be integrated into student's study program. Academic activities taken abroad will be recognized and fully equated. It is mandatory for the student to come back to Moldova, graduate and get the diploma in his country.
How to apply? Each inter-institutional agreement is different. The procedure, the list of necessary documents and the deadline are available at the International Relations Department. The application is on-line.
Who can benefit? Students registered in Moldovan HEIs, regardless of study cycle: Bachelor, Master or Doctorate.
How long? The overseas experience can last from 3 up to 12 months (24 months for students from Medicine). The same student can benefit of multiple mobility sessions during one study cycle, as long as they don't exceed 12 months.
Erasmus+ traineeships can last anywhere between 2 and 12 months and may take place in any public or private organisation (such as a company, public body, NGO, research institute or university).
What is the grant amount? Between 800 and 900 Euros, depending on the cost of living and the host country, plus a unique contribution for transportation, that is calculated based on the distance between the leaving institution and the one from the final destination.
What mobility partnerships are available? Every year universities from Moldova sign new mobility partnership agreements with universities from Programme Countries.
