Swiss European Mobility Programme (former Erasmus)

Following the suspension of negotiations on Switzerland’s association to Erasmus+, for the academic year 2014/2015, the Federal Council has drawn up an interim solution in order to still allow the mobility in Europe for university students and staff.

The Swiss European Mobility Programme provides opportunities for students, teachers and non-teaching staff to study and work in Europe. Through this programme it is possible to arrange study periods, work placements, teaching assignments, staff training, and intensive programmes in other countries participating in the scheme.

The University School of Music (SUM) of the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana organises exchanges in co-operation with its partners abroad according to criteria established by the Swiss Foundation for Confederal Collaboration, and in close collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI).

Although the SUM of the Conservatorio undertakes to give all students, teachers and other staff the opportunity to arrange an Erasmus exchange, it cannot guarantee that all applications will be successful. Each application is assessed individually on the basis of the criteria, means and needs of the SUM.

Information relating to the various types of exchange may be viewed below:

For further information contact Hernando Florez.

Staff mobility for teaching assignments (STA)

The Erasmus programme provides opportunities for teachers at the Conservatorio’s University School of Music to undertake teaching assignments at partner institutions and vice versa.

Applications must be submitted by 28 February of each year for the following academic year.

Documentation

Incoming applications are assessed in two different ways, according to the type of teaching assignment applied for. Applications for masterclasses are forwarded to the relevant teachers, who decide, in conjunction with the head of department, if the masterclass proposed can be integrated within the teaching programme for the following academic year. All other applications (for example, for theoretical seminars) must be accompanied by a detailed description of the seminar proposed (course description, objectives, methodologies, material required, etc.) and will be assessed by an appropriate committee.

Outgoing STA applications must satisfy the criteria of the host partner institution. SUM teaching staff members are requested to contact Hernando Florez for more detailed information.

Confirmation

Depending on the type of application, results should be announced between March and June.

Notification of results will depend on the criteria and schedule of the host partner institution.

 

Staff mobility for training (STT)

This action provides opportunities for both teaching and non-teaching staff of the Conservatorio’s University School of Music to undertake a period of training (between five working days and six weeks) in a company, organisation or higher education institution in another country participating in the programme.

The applicant must submit to his/her own institution a work plan that must be approved in the first instance by his/her immediate superior and by the SUM director, and then by the host company/institution.

NB: Language courses and conferences may not be considered as staff mobility for the purposes of specialisation.

Applications for an STT must be made in accordance with the following terms:

 

INCOMING (EU à CH)

OUTGOING (CH à EU)

Documentation

The applicant must submit a work proposal for approval and, if necessary, revision by the Conservatorio. It is recommended that the candidate prepares a list of questions and expectations that might serve as the basis for drawing up a possible offer of STT training.

Applicants must submit a detailed work plan outlining their objectives and overall aim, the expected outcome of the training or study, and a programme for the mobility period. The application must be agreed with the applicant’s immediate superior and approved by the SUM director.

Confirmation

Depending on the type of application, results may be announced within one or two months.

Notification of results will depend on the host company, organisation or institution.
