Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 29, the Information Day on International Study Mobility for the 2023/2024 call will be held. The event, organized by the Office of the Vice-Rector for International Relations, will take place in the Assembly Hall of the Rector's Office building on the Móstoles Campus.
During the Conference, information will be given on the Erasmus + and Munde programs and the requirements to be able to participate in the possible destinations that the URJC will offer. In the same way, the registration deadlines for next year's course and the financial aid that may be requested will be indicated.
As Marta Álvarez Falcón, from the International Relations Service, points out, the most common doubts are related to “the documentation to be delivered through the platform, language requirements, accommodation, the preparation of academic agreements, enrollment / fees to pay and the scholarships to which they aspire as mobility students”.
When asked about the differences between the two programs, Álvarez Falcón points out that Erasmus + is the most demanded by students, "due to the proximity and administrative facilities that this program presents, as well as the scholarship associated with the award of a Erasmus square. The Munde program establishes an agreement with countries outside the European Union and therefore does not have their financing.
Undoubtedly, the experience of the students in these stays is usually very positive, since "thanks to them they have been able to learn about new cultures, languages, educational systems...", says Álvarez Falcón. For this reason, from the International Relations Service "we encourage all students to participate in these programs, which offer a unique opportunity to acquire international skills that can add value, in the future, to their professional profile."
In addition, as usual, the RI Service has proposed the hashtag #MOBILIDADURJC so that users can post their doubts on Twitter and comment on them at the end of the Conference. "Twitter is one of the social networks with the largest number of users in our country, so it is a tool that is fully accessible to students," says Marta Álvarez. On the other hand, the personalization of the questions makes the answer more specific for each person.
Admission is free until full capacity is reached and the conference will also be broadcast online for those who cannot attend in person, through this link: https://tv.urjc.es/live/event/637b247b0b772d23fe3edaf5. In the same way, the video will remain published on the University website.
