EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES

Erasmus+ and Toulouse Catholic University (ICT)

The Erasmus+ European Programme enables students, teachers and staff in the education and further training sectors to undertake a mobility period within another country of the European Union.

In France, the programme is regulated by the Erasmus+ Agency, under the supervision of the following ministries:

  • Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche (Ministry of Higher Education and Research)
  • Ministère de l’Éducation Nationale (National Education Ministry)
  • Ministère de l’Économie, de l’Industrie et de l’Emploi (Ministry of Economy, Industry and Employment)

Since 2008, the ICT has been a signatory to an Erasmus charter guaranteeing mobility for its students and staff, in accordance with the Erasmus+ Agency.

Over 102 Erasmus+ bilateral agreements in 2020. See our international partners.

The Erasmus+ programme allows you to carry out part of your studies or attend a traineeship in another country within the EU. You will benefit from a mobility grant, and your time spent abroad will be validated for your course on your return to France. Mobility periods for studies will generally last from one semester to one year, with traineeships lasting from 2 to 6 months.

If you have a disability and you wish to travel with the Erasmus programme, you may qualify for a specific grant. Please get in touch with the Service Relations Internationales (International Relations Department) for further information.

Academic recognition for your studies abroad

ECTS- European Credit Transfer System

ICT’s State courses are organised following the ECTS credit system, which guarantees academic recognition of your time spent studying in an ICT partner university abroad. After spending a semester or academic year with one of our partners, students will validate their studies although the contents of the course may differ slightly. The student’s personal experience is also an important aspect of this programme.

Within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, there is an ECTS equivalence between the partnering universities.

Prior to departure, an educational contract defining the choice of courses and the ECTS is signed by the student and approved by the director of studies. These ECTSs enable recognition of the study period spent abroad (30 ECTS min./semester and 60 ECTS min./year). Any change to the original choices must be approved by the director of studies. At the end of the mobility period, the report card must correspond to the final choice of courses. This will be verified by both the International Relations Office and by the Faculty. At the end of the mobility period, the ICT will receive the report card from the host university, and will issue a supplement to the student’s diploma once all exams have been validated.

or more information on the ECTS: Guide ECTS In the context of cooperation agreements with non-European universities, the value of credits may differ between partners (e.g.: China, Japan, Brazil…). For information purposes only, please refer to this equivalence chart.

      Other exchange programmes outside of ERASMUS

      The ICT has established partnerships throughout the whole world, thanks to prospective visits to other universities and its contact network FUCE (Fédérations de Universités Catholiques Européennes) and the FIUC (Fédération Internationale des Universités Catholiques).
      Thus, cooperation agreements with numerous universities in Asia (China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan…), Latin America (Argentina, Peru, Brazil…), South Africa, the Middle East, etc… have been signed and allow our students to study abroad for a semester or an academic year.
