In order to agree upon and sign any Institutional European Mobility agreements, the centre’s procedures must cover the following 9 points:
Complete visits to other EU institutions (and outside of the EU) that have the experience and sensibility for exchange students through the ERASMUS programme.
Have similar objectives and philosophy between two or more educational institutions.
Analyse the possibilities and interest shown by the respective student communities.
Sign agreements, which will put on record, among other things, the number of seats and duration of each mobility.
Public announcement of the seats
Collect applications for those students interested.
Select and allocate seats according to established protocols.
Assessment and report of the mobility.
Choosing international partners
As a starting point, the Centre has established some basic prerequisites in order to search and choose the international partners that will enable it to set up the entire mobility plan.
a) Choosing a partner that is a legal entity.
b) That the partner be an establishment of Higher Education or University.
c) That the partner be registered in a Member State of the European Union.
d) That the partner be directly responsible for managing the activities with its collaborative international centres.
e) Above all, that our partners have a common or complementary work philosophy with our Centre, which enables the student exchanges to be fluid and enriching for all participants.
The Centre will search out Erasmus partners with whom to sign cooperation agreements for their international mobility projects within the region or geographic regions under the administration of the Member States of the European Union, or at least, with the States that have signed bilateral mobility agreements with the European Union. They have already begun negotiations with universities in Germany and England.
Objectives of European and international mobility
The main objective of the European and international mobility of EOLIA is fundamentally about offering students educational and professional experiences in new cultural contexts that improve their artistic and linguistic skills. We understand that immersion in the cultural and educational atmospheres of foreign countries is essential for the the students’ growth. It is also an indispensable tool for establishing a modern and educational project of the future. This idea of mobility is a key element to foster future potential links between young professionals from different countries. It can also promote the creation of new artistic hybrid languages that generate new dramatic dialogue, new interprative languages and new perspectives on stage direction. The students’ and academic staff’s participation in these programs is indisputably an improvement in the quality of teaching and learning of the participants involved. The individual repercussions have as large of an impact for the individual as they do in redefining the future of the host centre.
The Center will promote the European mobility of its students from 2nd cycle onwards (3rd and 4th year, of a four year programme) and also in the 3rd cycle (postgraduate, master's and doctorate). The Centre will also promote the European mobility of academic staff, particularly in areas related to research and development of new performance languages.
The Centre is keen in finding European centres of Higher Education in the Performing Arts who wish to share similar objectives with regard to the creation of double degrees. Ultimately, it would like to offer both in medium and long-terms, these types of degrees with those partners who have a project that is more pedagogically compatible with the Centre’s.
