Incoming exchange students at ISCOM France
If you are interested in coming to ISCOM as an exchange student, make sure that your institution has a partnership with us. If it is the case then your home institution has to nominate you first. Contact the International Coordinator/Erasmus Coordinator at your home institution who will be able to advise you further. They will provide you with the internal application process.
We use SoleMOVE online platform for nominations and applications for incoming exchange students. Nomination can only be done by the international office of the student’s home institution. If the partner institution does not have or has forgotten the login information, it can be requested on firstname.lastname@example.org. If your home institution is not ISCOM’s partner yet, the international office can contact us.
For the nomination process the following student's information is needed:
- date of birth
- email address (make sure that the email address you provide is correct and in use)
- field and level of studies
Nomination deadlines for incoming exchange students:
- April 30th for the Autumn Semester

Please note that a nomination by the home institution does not mean an automatic acceptance by ISCOM!

- In the Autumn Semester from September to January

The Study Plan is part of the online application form, it is a choice of programme (specialisation), campus and study year that the student wishes to take during a semester at ISCOM. Please note that students must choose courses from one programme (specialisation) only. It is not possible to pick-and-choose from different programmes (specialisations) or study years.

Students should receive their home institution's validation of the chosen ISCOM study year, programme (specialisation) and associated courses before submitting the online application. The study plan will also be reviewed by ISCOM’s academic team. Once the student’s study plan is validated their Learning Agreement can be created. Have a look on the table bellow to know which programme (specialisation) is offered when and on which campus :
Learning Agreement for Erasmus+ Programme exchange students
The Learning Agreement is an official document that will need to be filled out by the student with the course choices (listed one by one) for their semester at ISCOM. When the Learning Agreement is complete, the student will need to add their signature first, then have their home institution’s international coordinator sign it and finally the ISCOM international coordinator can sign the document.
Please note that the Learning Agreement can only be created after the student has been officially accepted at ISCOM = has received the Letter of Acceptance.
ISCOM currently uses the OLA (Online Learning Agreement) platform to sign Learning Agreements. Students need to prepare the Online Learning Agreement (OLA) according to their home institution’s guidelines. If the student’s home institution is not using OLA or any other platform to complete the Learning agreement, the student will need to fill out a Learning Agreement as a Word or a PDF document and send it to email@example.com.
