Objectives of the ERASMUS+ approach at ENSM

The various ERASMUS+ activities implemented by the institution help achieve ENSM’s objectives to:

  • Promote the embarkation of our students on ships flying all flags,
  • Encourage student mobility to higher education institutions to continue a period of study or an internship abroad,
  • Strengthen the learning of foreign languages, primarily English (the working language aboard ships),
  • Offer dual degrees,
  • Develop intercultural skills, particularly found among ship crews,
  • Organize exchanges in foreign higher education institutions:
    • For professors: thus allowing the discovery of new cultures and pedagogical approaches (incoming and outgoing mobility) for the benefit of ENSM students and other teachers.
    • For administrative staff: thus allowing the discovery of other practices and new cultures (incoming and outgoing mobility)
  • Strengthen existing academic partnerships and develop new ones to increase the visibility and attractiveness of the School,
  • Develop the offering of European training programs (through joint programs with other partners),
  • Pool pedagogical resources and tools.

With the ERASMUS+ charter, mobilities concern:

  • Students from all courses (after validation of the versatile curriculum by other academies),
  • Teachers who provide instruction in initial training and/or continuing education,
  • Teachers who participate in projects and research activities on shared themes,
  • All students as part of their internship: officer cadets who must complete internships aboard ships and maritime engineering students who must complete a 6-month internship in a company,
  • Administrative staff for exchanges of best practices.

Internships abroad
