During the Neurasmus introduction session (welcome days), all students will be registered at Université de Bordeaux. However, students will still need to go through the local registration procedures within the other partner universities they will study at. Depending on the university of study, procedures can be annual or biannual. Students need to proceed local registrations on their own with the help of partner universities, meeting the local deadlines.
The Neuramus Program starts with a compulsory introduction session in Bordeaux at the end of August. This general meeting brings together all the students and representatives of the different partner universities. The students get to know each other with social activities and are introduced to the Neurasmus Program expectations, European academic practice and ethical standards.
Students receive comprehensive practical support to prepare their mobility and the Neurasmus Office helps the students to go through mandatory main administrative issues :
- Signature of the Student Agreement, i.e. the contract between the Student and the Consortium. Please find here the Student Agreement Template for scholarship funded scheme / self-funded scheme
- Opening of a French Bank Account for the delivery of the EM scholarship;
- Payment procedure of the EMMC participation costs by Self-funding students;
- Insurance scheme application for all the students;
Insurance: The Neurasmus Consortium concluded a partnership with the Marsh Company, which delivers the Erasmus Mundus Insurance Scheme 2 (EMIS 2) in line with the minimum requirements for the health and accident insurance coverage of Erasmus Mundus Action 1 and Action 2 set by the European Agency. Students will be provided with detailed information and insurance cards during the welcome days.
