Optimal and efficient student and staff mobility-support
VLUHR-i manages and supports both the Flemish scholarship programmes of the Brains on the Move action-plan as of the consortium "Stage na Afstuderen". To a limited extent, academic staff mobility is also supported. This optimal and efficient support of incoming and outgoing student (and staff) mobility is financed by domestic and foreign governments.
Brains on the Move
Acquiring international and intercultural competences is of great importance to our students. A stay in a higher education institution abroad is an excellent way to acquire these competences. To this end, VLUHR-i implements the Flemish Action Plan "Brains on the Move", which is subsidised by the Flemish Ministry of Education & Training. Furthermore, VLUHR-i also supports scholarship programmes of other institutions. Students looking for more information about these scholarship programmes can visit our website www.studentsonthemove.be.
Brains on the Move does not only include outgoing credit mobility scholarship programmes for students enrolled at our Flemish higher education institutions, but also the Master Mind Scholarship Programme. This programme offers scholarships to students from all over the world who come to study for a Master's degree at a Flemish higher education institution. More information can be found on our website www.studyinflanders.be.
In addition to grants for student mobility, Brains on the Move also offers opportunities to higher education institutions and professors: subsidies for summer campuses, joint programmes and the "leerstoelen" in a number of prestigious American universities.
Erasmus+ Internship after Graduation
The Erasmus+ programme offers not only grants for student mobility during studies, but also for post-graduate placement mobility. The Flemish universities and Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts have formed a consortium to offer Erasmus+ scholarships for postgraduate, bachelor's, master's or doctoral degrees. This consortium is called the 'Flanders Traineeship Platform' and is managed by VLUHR.
