Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility at Central Asian University

Central Asian University is proud to announce its participation in the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility program, an initiative that embodies our commitment to fostering global academic collaboration and enriching the educational experience of our students and staff.

What is Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility?

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) is a prestigious program funded by the European Union. It promotes exchange and cooperation between higher education institutions across Europe and partner countries worldwide. Through this program, students, academic and administrative staff have the unique opportunity to gain new skills, experience different cultures, and enhance their employability by studying, teaching, or training abroad.

Opportunities for Students and Staff

For Students:
Central Asian University students can now spend a part of their academic journey in a partner institution within the European Union. This mobility period ranges from a short-term stay of a few days to a full academic year. Students will benefit not just academically but also gain invaluable international exposure, improve language skills, and develop a global network.

For Academic and Administrative Staff:
The program also supports the professional development of our staff. Academic staff can engage in teaching activities, while administrative staff can benefit from training and skill-building sessions in a partner institution. These opportunities foster the exchange of expertise, pedagogical methods, and best practices, contributing to the personal and professional growth of our staff and enhancing the quality of education at Central Asian University.
