Middlesex University receives Erasmus funding boost

More than 100 participants will benefit from €488,812 (£351,000) International Credit Mobility award

ErasmusMiddlesex University will become the only UK institution to fund more than 100 participants in the International Credit Mobility (ICM) programme after being awarded almost half a million euros.

The €488,812 (£351,000) fund represents a fifth of the total amount awarded to all UK universities – underlining the University's breadth of current international projects and collaborations.

ICM is a new strand of the Erasmus+ programme that offers grants to university students to study for a semester or a year at selected universities in countries outside the EU as part of their degree. Short teaching or training visits by university staff are also funded through this programme. In addition, grants will be awarded to students and staff from partner countries coming to the UK. 

Commenting on the announcement, Middlesex University Erasmus and International Exchange Manager Dr Nosheen Rachel-Naseem said: "The funding will not only provide grants to Middlesex students and staff for study, teaching and training visits to partner universities, it will also allow Middlesex to welcome students and staff from these partners to the University to contribute new socio-cultural perspectives to enrich its research and teaching.

"We look forward to both the enhancement of the student experience that this will bring, as well as engagement with new fields of international research."

The new ICM award is in addition to the University's Erasmus+ funding of €280,114 (£202,000) for 2015-16 for mobility within the Erasmus programme countries.

    Dear Harriet,
    For the academic year 15/16, Uganda is not a part of the Erasmus+ ICM programme. However, the African, Caribbean and Pacific region will possibly be added in the 2016/17 application call for E+ ICM.

    I belong to Middlesex ULUMNI. I graduated as a Primary School teacher with a first class degree. Apart from the classroom duties in UK and Uganda, I have progressed into research in Education through supporting children in deprived parts of Africa. I would like to know if Uganda is one of the countries in the Erasmus programme . If it is not how can Middlesex University help me to continue this very much needed programme ? One of the centres I have set up can be viewed at
