Erasmus+

Your music, in Italy and around the world!

Saint Louis participates in the Erasmus+ program, which allows intensified exchange programs for students, faculty and staff for study, teaching or training projects in Europe and around the world.

Thanks to its participation in the Erasmus+ program, Saint Louis offers its students, undergraduates and graduates of 1st and 2nd cycle Academic Courses, the opportunity to carry out part of their studies or an educational internship during or upon completion of their studies in Europe. In fact, each student can take advantage of up to 12 months of European mobility per study cycle, choosing one of Saint Louis’ many Partner institutions as a study destination and/or applying to European companies (recording studios, music schools, choirs and orchestras, etc.) for a foreign internship experience.

Erasmus+ students and trainees receive ad hoc community financial aid to support their experience. Students have the opportunity to take courses and use the facilities available at the host institution without additional tuition fees, with the guarantee of recognition of the study period abroad through the transfer of their respective credits earned. Trainees can begin to put into practice what they have learned during their years of study by putting themselves to the test in professional work settings to kick-start their careers already in an international setting.

OUTGOING EXTRA EU

The International Credit Mobility is one of the major innovations introduced by the Erasmus+ Program in order to facilitate the mobility of students, faculty and technical-administrative staff between EU and non-EU countries.

After successfully consolidating itself among the countries of the European Union, Saint Louis College of Music approaches this new opportunity for exchange and growth by launching, starting with the 2017/2018 Academic Year, two two-year Collaborative Projects, now completed, with the Tbilisi State Conservatoire (Georgia) and the Faculty of Arts, Universiteti i Prishtines (Kosovo)., exchange that saw in mobility:

  • Staff and faculty from St. Louis to Georgia and Kosovo and vice versa.
  • Students from Georgia and Kosovo at St. Louis

For the current a.y. 2023/2024, Saint Louis has individual Erasmus Extra EU projects active with Tbilisi State Conservatoire (Georgia)

The Calls for Teacher Mobility for Teaching Activities are CLOSED.

TIBLISI – GEORGIA

The Exchange Program between Saint Louis and Tbilisi State Conservatory focused on the Departments of: Jazz, Sound Engineering and Electronic Music Composition.
The Project, inaugurated in September 2017, lasted for two years – ending September 2019 – and implemented outbound mobility of teaching and administrative staff of Saint Louis, and inbound mobility of students, administrative and teaching staff of Tbilisi Conservatory.
For the 2nd year of the Project, on the strength of the similarities and complementarities noted between the two Institutes, as well as the strong affinity, Saint Louis involved the TSC in an expansion of the mobilities provided by the Erasmus program, going to Tbilisi to stage a 3-day Jazz Festival in which Italian ensembles were complemented by a local musician: Minus One.

PRISTINA – KOSOVO

The Exchange Project with the Faculty of Arts of the University of Pristina was activated starting from the 2018/2019 academic year, implementing outgoing mobility of Saint Louis faculty and administrative staff for 1 full year, and incoming mobility of students, administrative staff and faculty of the Kosovo Institute. Departments involved: Jazz (incoming and outgoing), Classical and Folk (from Kosovo to Italy). The ultimate goal of the project was to encourage the establishment of a dedicated jazz department within the Faculty of Arts in Pristina, which provides only a few modules dedicated to this musical genre, in view of the absence of jazz teaching centers in the entire region of Kosovo.

However, students or faculty interested in UK destinations may submit specific Projects to the International Office to assess their feasibility through specific targeted actions. Partnerships are therefore subject to evaluation and partially funded by Erasmus and the Turing Program.
