All students at the conservatory can do a study abroad period either through an Erasmus+ partnership or through a non-Erasmus bilateral agreement. There are no limits with regard to age or nationality.
Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport (2014-2020). In the field of education and training, the Erasmus initiative is renowned for the opportunities it provides students to learn abroad, as well as the opportunities it provides for teaching staff in higher education. Building on these, the Erasmus+ programme now covers five major areas of education and training: from school education to adult education.
The Erasmus+ programme dedicates its activities to 3 specific fields of actions:
The actions of the Erasmus + programme are divided into decentralised actions and centralised actions.
The Erasmus+ programme has implemented its own philosophy and established specific rules :
Students can apply for an Erasmus+ exchange in an institution that has signed a bilateral agreement with the home institution. Please click here to access the list of partner institutions of the CNSMDL.
Eligible countries to the Erasmus+ programme are:
An Erasmus+ study period abroad can last between 3 and 12 months without interruption. Applications are only possible from the second academic year onwards. The study period abroad cannot exceed 12 months per academic cycle. Please note that it includes the previous Erasmus exchanges that you could have done in another institution.
A traineeship (work placement) abroad in an enterprise or any other relevant workplace can last between 2 and 12 months without interruption. Applications are possible from the first academic year onwards.
In order to facilitate the recognition of credits between institutions, the CNSMDL prefers that study periods abroad correspond to entire academic semesters (one or two).
Students wishing to take art in an exchange can only do so before they obtain their diploma and preferably in the last year of their undergraduate studies or the first year of their master’s degree.
In all cases the date, length and place of the study abroad period are subject to the agreement of the teacher of the student’s main subject and the Director of Studies.
When applying for an study period abroad, students should take into account their complementary disciplines and namely the ones involving them in ensembles. As student, you should make sure that:
Therefore it is important to discuss your application first with the Director of Studies.
The CNSMD reserves the right to reject a mobility request if the student’s progress is considered incompatible with a study abroad period and/or the project is deemed to be ill-conceived.
Because of the number of places for exchange students at partner institutions is strictly limited, it is not always possible to grant students their wishes, even if they have demonstrated that they have reached the required level. Students are therefore advised to make several different applications.
All students (no matter the nationality) registered in a Higher Education institution, which has signed the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020, can apply for a Erasmus+ exchange.
