LEARNING MOBILITY IS ABOUT YOU!
A good preparation is a guarantee of success that is the reason why we have identified the following main steps in order for you to make the best of any learning mobility opportunity.
Develop your idea
It will be crucial to identify what is it you are looking for: depending on your objectives and expectations in terms of experiences and skills as well as your language ability, you may choose different countries.
Identify the funding opportunities ahead
There are many funding opportunities (see our wizard) but finding the one that will suits you best will depend on how much time you are planning to seen abroad, as well as your current situation (student, volunteer, employees, age, etc).
Submit your project
If you have identified a potential funding opportunities, you should now apply for it. Whatever kind it is, be patient and be efficient: make sure to fill in and submit all the requested documents. This might be sometime boring but it would be such a shame to miss an opportunity simply because you did not read the full application form or add a stamped envelope with your home address in your application so the answer can be returned back to you.
In order to make the most of your learning mobility, it is advised to prepare and plan it at best while reading some tips and info about the culture, getting to know the organisation who will host you and making sure you have all the needed administrative documents with you: valid passport, VISA, etc.
Be ready to be self-reflective, take notes and always think about “what will I bring back home and/or to my organisation”. Be ready to be open-minded, learn, listen, ask question but also share your opinion and experience. Learning mobility should be a win-win situation.
