Study or work abroad with Erasmus+

École Supérieure Internationale de Savignac has signed up to the Erasmus+ programme. It is subsidised by the European Commission and means that you may be awarded a grant* during a work placement or a term of studies in an Erasmus partner country (the 27 members of the EU, plus Norway, Turkey, Liechtenstein and Iceland). This grant is to help you pay for any additional costs incurred by studies or work placements abroad.

You can only claim this grant once per study programme (whether for study or work placement purposes abroad), i.e. once for the Bachelor’s degree programme and once for the MBA.

* These grants are quota-based and are therefore not automatic; they do not constitute a right

Studying abroad

01. What are the selection criteria for studying abroad with an Erasmus+ grant ?

École Supérieure Internationale de Savignac has set out a procedure for student selection based on the following criteria:

  • Academic excellence (people skills and hard work)
  • The quality of studies, research or assignments
  • Language skills
  • The candidate’s commitment to return to the School at the end of the period away

You can apply whatever your nationality.  However, you must be aware of the conditions for entering and leaving French territory and the host country.

If you are a European student resident in France, you could be eligible for a grant to your home country, but your application will not be given priority.

02. I only speak French. Can I study in a foreign country ?

No, most of our partner universities teach in a language other than French (except Senegal). You therefore are required to have a minimum B2 level in that language (TOEIC / TOEFL / IELTS tests). The following are the scores required:

  • TOEIC : 605 – 780
  • TOEFL : 87 – 109
  • IELTS : 5.5 – 6.5

03. How long do I spend studying in the partner university ?

You can go for a term from January to April or February to May, so 4 months in total.

04. Is there a minimum and maximum period for studying abroad ?

Yes.  To be eligible for an Erasmus grant, you need to spend between 3 and 12 months abroad.   At Savignac, the term spent studying abroad is built into Year 2 of the Bachelor’s degree and lasts between 3 and 4 months.  This means you are eligible to apply for an Erasmus+ grant.

05. Can I go and study abroad at whichever university I choose ?

No, you can only study at one of the partner universities of École Supérieure Internationale de Savignac.

06. Where can I go abroad to study ?

We have bilateral agreements with 10 partner universities in Europe. Currently, 31 countries are involved in the Erasmus+ programme.

07. Will going abroad to study add a year to my course ?

No, your term studying abroad is built into Year 2 of the International Bachelor’s degree. You follow the study programme of the host university.   Your academic performance abroad counts towards your final degree at Savignac. You receive academic recognition for the modules studied at the partner institution, thanks to the ECTS credit system. You need 30 ECTS credits in order to guarantee going through to Year 3.

08. Is the number of students studying abroad at a partner university limited ?

Yes, each bilateral agreement states the number of students accepted and this is usully between 1 and 3 students per partner university.

09. How much is the grant ?

The amount of the grant varies from year to year and from one country to another.
The grant is based on the time spent abroad and the chosen destination. The amount of the grant does not take into account students’ financial resources.

In 2018, the amount of these grants was:

Group Country of destination Rate
G1 Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, United Kingdom, Sweden 270 – 370 €

10. When will I have my grant ?

Once you have been accepted as an Erasmus student, you will receive information concerning your period of studies abroad. A cheque will be sent to you at the address you’ve given us, once documents have been returned and your host university sends us the original of your Learning Agreement.

  • 70 – 100% within 30 days after signature of both parties and at the latest the first day of your studies abroad or 2 weeks after receipt of the certificate of arrival
  • 30 – 0% within 45 days of receipt of the participant’s report

11. Do I have to submit an application to my host institution ?

Yes, most universities have their own application forms that must be completed within their own deadlines.  Each of our partner institutions has a dedicated page.

12. How can I find the modules which will be taught by my host institution during my semester abroad ?

The modules can usually be found on the Erasmus page of the partner university’s website.

13. What about accommodation ?

All our partners have an obligation to help students to find appropriate accommodation.  This help can take a number of forms, from allocating accommodation in a student residence to simply providing a list of available accommodation.  So it is up to you to secure your accommodation.
