Groupe IGS schools and training centers benefit from an Erasmus+ consortium accreditation and have all signed Erasmus+ charters.

Groupe IGs erasmus programs

All of the Groupe IGS schools and programs are actively involved in Erasmus+ programs (2021-2027) which have become an integral part of the group's strategy to both modernize and internationalize education in France. This strategy recognizes the importance of student and staff mobility, as well as that of cooperative projects supporting better educational opportunities for students.


Erasmus+ specifically aims to strengthen the quality of student and staff mobility experiences, as well as to assist the organizations involved. The new Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) has been strengthened with new quality requirements. The Erasmus+ Charter applicable over the 2021-2027 period replaces the former Erasmus University Charter (standard, expanded to internships only, and expanded) valid through the 2014-2020 academic year.

  • For our students, acquiring skills abroad not only promotes personal development, but also improves employability. Students with disabilities can also apply for this additional financial aid within the Erasmus framework.
  • For Groupe IGS faculty members and staff, acquiring and sharing knowledge and expertise contributes to quality improvement in education, while at the same time strengthening partnerships between European organizations and companies.

Groupe IGS schools with the Erasmus+ charters have obtained Erasmus+ higher education mobility funding to send students, faculty, and staff abroad at any time. Please contact the International Relations department for more information.

Groupe IGS's european projects

Erasmus+ Mobility and Disabilities

Erasmus+ aims to promote equality and inclusion by facilitating access to its programs for participants with physical, mental, or health-related conditions and those with fewer opportunities.

Groupe IGS's International Relations department, in partnership with Hand'IGS, the group's disability initiative, helps students apply for extra Erasmus+ funding to offset additional costs related to the mobility.
