International exchanges are a priority in the School's strategy. All ENSA Normandie's staff can carry out a mobility abroad: teaching, student and administrative teams.

In this section you will find information on study and work placement mobility for students; staff mobility; grants and specific schemes for people with disabilities. A chapter is also dedicated to your stay: before, during and after.

How long?

The duration of the study abroad period is limited to one or two semesters. Students usually go for two semesters (odd and even). However, it is possible to do a study mobility as well as a placement mobility.

The maximum duration of the stay is 12 months (studies and internship combined) per cycle (bachelor's cycle, master's cycle) in the Erasmus+ framework.

How to apply?

Submit your application in 2 steps:

  1. Taiga: Enter your 3 wishes in the "mobility" tab on your Taiga portal, selecting the year of the desired mobility
  2. Paper version: send us the completed application form by email before Wednesday 6 January 2021 at 5pm (Mobility 2021-2022)

Date of the CFVE (selection of candidates): January 2021

As soon as the selection is made, the International Relations Department proceeds with the nomination of the partner institutions of the selected students. Depending on their capacity, the institutions are entitled to refuse an appointment. If the students are accepted, the host institutions send the registration procedure and all the information necessary for their stay (administrative and educational information, accommodation, etc.).

Special case of Laval University in Quebec City: After the CFVE selection, a new application file is sent in February to Laval University, which then makes its own selection.

What teaching choices?

The principle is to validate courses from your original programme with courses taken and obtained at the host university.

Following the selection result and if you are selected, you must draw up your pedagogical contract which must include at least one architectural project per semester.

For Erasmus +

The pedagogical contract will total 30 ECTS for one semester and 60 ECTS for two semesters. Only 6 ECTS for one year are awarded for language courses (3 ECTS for one semester).

Exchange agreements

The pedagogical contract will total 20 hours of supervised teaching. This document must be validated before departure by the teacher in charge of each destination (except for Hanoi where the teaching contract is compulsory).
