In recent years, we have organized for our students to take part in residential summer courses held at prestigious international universities (London Metropolitan University; City University London; Lincoln Study Centre; Universidad Católica de Murcia). As a result, SSML Vittoria has entered into a bi-lateral agreement for exchanges (for both teachers and students) with the A. M. Gorky state institute for higher education in Moscow.
In 2015/16 SSML Vittoria university institute put forward an application to develop exchange programmes for teachers and students as part of the Erasmus+ 2014-2020 project. Our application was approved in November 2016 and the Scuola per Mediatori Linguistici Vittoria university institute thus obtained the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) and has now become part of the Erasmus+ International Programmes.
Erasmus + is the EU’s program 2014/2020 to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. This program came into effect on January 1st, 2014 in order to provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience and volunteer abroad.
Erasmus + combines and integrates the 7 funding mechanisms implemented by the European Union until 2013: the Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action and the 5 international cooperation programs (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the bilateral cooperation program with industrialized countries).
The Erasmus + Programme implements the following Actions:
- Key Action 1 – Mobility of individuals
- Key Action 2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices
- Key Action 3 – Support for policy reform
In order to undertake an Erasmus + experience with the SSML Vittoria, foreign students must follow the selection procedure of their Home University. The University will then provide the names of the students who are allowed to apply for a period of study in our School, by sending an e-email to the SSML Vittoria International Relations Office.
The Erasmus+ experience in our School is available upon submission of a signed and implemented bilateral Erasmus agreement between the two institutions.
As soon as possible, the selected student must send the following documentation duly completed and signed to the Erasmus Office (by mail to the address: Scuola Superiore per Mediatori Linguistici Vittoria, Via delle Rosine 14 – 10123 Torino, Italia; by electronic mail to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org):
- Erasmus+ Student_Application_Form_incoming
- learning agreement studies (study program to be carried out in Italy); it is possible to have access to all activated courses by checking our website ssmlto.it
For a first semester or a whole academic year Erasmus stay, it is necessary to send the required documentation by June 5th of each year, while for a second semester Erasmus stay, by October 30th.
The Erasmus Office will inform the student about the acceptance of his/her application.
After arriving at SSML Vittoria, the student is required to contact the International Relations Office on an agreed date in order to both complete the registration forms and obtain the college transcript.
Our University will sign the Erasmus+ Incoming Attestation (the form is usually released by the student’s Home University). This attestation will state the starting date of the stay.
The student must then compare the courses listed in the Learning Agreement for studies (previously sent to the International Relations Office together with the application) with the updated courses planning and, if necessary, amend the original plan with the help of the Erasmus coordinator.
