Participating teachers are expected to give at least 8 hours of class. Thanks to this program, they will benefit from a travel and accommodation contribution.

From the 24th to the 28th of April, 2017, we had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Ledian HASA for a training mobility within the Direction des Relations Internationals (DRI) of the University, as part of the Erasmus + project for International Credits Mobility. Mr. HASA worked in the International Relations Office of Tirana (Albania) where he is responsible for the management of international agreements, student, staff and teacher mobility.

He delivered his impressions on mobility:

My mobility trip in Bordeaux Montaigne University, within the Direction des Relations Internationales (DRI), was a major boon. This will help me tremendously for my work at Tirana University. During my stay, I had the occasion to see the DRI’s organization and management of student and administrative mobility as part of the Erasmus + program. Managing the mobilities from both sides, incoming and outgoing, is a very good idea. We will try to put it in place in Tirana University.

It was also very pleasant to meet different colleagues from the university. They were all charming, welcoming, nice and obliging. They always took the time to answer my questions.

As for the city of Bordeaux, I find it lovely, calming and full of all different kinds of architecture, where every building has its own story.”


For the students wishing to come study in Bordeaux Montaigne University the procedure is available here.

Dorothée POIRIER, a third year PhD student in Archeological Science in Bordeaux Montaigne University, has spent the second semester 2016-2017 in the University of Niš (Serbia).

Here is her testimony:

Since 2012, I have regularly travelled to Serbia for my research, but also to participate in international archeological excavations. It is no coincidence that I chose this destination. As soon as I could, I decided to apply for a semester of study in the History department of the Philosophy Faculty of Ni š, in the south-east of the country. Mainly working on the antique period of the central Balkans, I had the opportunity to re-discover the History of a region generally put off to the side in our education system.

Thanks to this program, I met a lot of people and participated in several academic and cultural events. From my arrival, I met other young French students and we were invited by the French Institute of Ni š, Marion Viau, who is now a genuine friend.

I also had the chance to meet, during the Francophonie month, Madam the Ambassador of France and Mister Honorary Consul. During an intervention to the European Union bureau, I discussed the Erasmus program and the Franco-Serbian scientific collaboration. Serbia is a multifaceted country, enriched by its culture and people. Although it is not under the coconut trees, I recommend this original destination. This semester is and will stay a magnificent experience in my curriculum!
