International Credit Mobility

Since 2016, ISA Lille has managed several Erasmus+ Key Action 107 grant for student and staff mobility projects.

Learning Without Borders

These two-year programs focus on cooperation for academic and professional development for participants and our institution by sending student and staff to our special partners abroad, as well as welcoming students and staff from those partners. Our current International Credit Mobility programs were developed in collaboration with our partners in China, Ghana, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Ukraine, and the United States, with more projects underway.

Objectives 

ISA Lille is honored to participate in the European Commission’s Erasmus+ projects with partner countries outside of Europe. These notable exchanges are a distinct opportunity to benefit from the expertise of a foreign partner outside of Europe. These collaborations also give our non-European partners a significant introduction to the European education system, ECTS, and the pedagogy of French engineering schools. 

Thanks to the Erasmus+ grants provided by the European Commission, our International Credit Mobility programs give enriching international experience to students and staff of diverse backgrounds. We are proud to welcome students and staff from China, Ghana, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Ukraine, and the United States to share our expertise and learn from theirs. These intercultural learning experiences provide a valuable foundation for a future of international cooperation, for our institution as well as the participants of the program. 

Current Projects 

Each partner university presents a unique cooperation opportunity. Working together on our respective specialties, we maximize the benefits to each participant and ensure a fruitful exchange. Our current partner universities and associated projects are:

Results and Impact 

Primarily, the students who participate benefit from essential international exposure during their education, making them more well-rounded professionals and more employable in a globalized job market. They learn not only different ways of approaching the same problem, but also how to work in an intercultural group, a skill that is becoming more vital every day. 

Likewise, the staff participants gain valuable knowledge of international practices that help inspire new solutions in their own work, and can be imparted to their students during lectures and research projects. In addition, staff return to their home institution with a broadened perspective, refining the institution’s international aspect. 

Most importantly, we hope that these exchanges can improve intercultural dialogue, international cooperation, and help lay the foundation for ongoing, long-term partnerships between individuals, institutions, cultures and governments.

Student Perspectives

What participating students have said about their International Credit Mobility experience:
Expert Knowledge
My Erasmus + experience has given me a lot of knowledge on the management of pollution as we have received many specialists in this area of study. It has also opened me up to accept different cultural practices and different perspectives of people as we were integrated with people from many different nationalities.

Dream Fulfilled
Gaining the Erasmus + mobility scholarship made my dream of studying abroad come true. Before coming to France, I expected to gain more knowledge in Food Science and Technology which would fully prepare me to be an engineer of the world. And I got what I expected including learning new cultures form other international students, travel experiences and the opportunity to study French and fully immerse myself in their rich culture. In all, this has been an awesome experience and I hope others get the chance to have a feel of it too.

New Connections
The opportunity to have a new experience in France through Erasmus comes as an eye opener to the amazing educational systems, cultures and lifestyles there are in other countries. The new exposures and experiences will go a long way into equipping me with professional and interpersonal skills. This also broadens my friendship circles as well as the connections with persons coming from other nations. Living in France has boosted my ability to communicate in French. The peak of the experience is life at ISA which has transformed my understanding both in and outside class with the amazing student-teacher relationship and the general social life at the campus.

A Fully Rewarding Experience
Before coming to ISA Lille I expected to gain knowledge in the management of pollution which I could implement in my country, meet new friends and get a possibility to travel around Europe. So, I got everything I expected and even more! I met many specialists in my field of interest, in this way I expanded my professional network. This experience helps to become a good specialist in the management of pollution and the international experience that I acquired in this program will be highly valuable in my country.

Exploring New Horizons
I have a specific interest to be a researcher and exploring access to food safety and risk assessment. The Erasmus exchange gave me the opportunity to go outside my country and out of my comfort zone.
