Relazioni internazionali/Erasmus +

ECTS – Grading Scale e Record Matches

La scala di valutazione ECTS è un sistema di classificazione definito nell’ambito del European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) da parte della Commissione europea. Lo strumento è stato implementato per fornire una misura comune e facilitare le procedure di convalida attraverso il trasferimento dei voti e dei crediti fra i diversi sistemi di valutazione tra gli istituti di istruzione superiore europei, coordinando di fatto sistemi di classificazione nazionali e internazionali. I voti sono convertiti su una scala attentamente calibrata compresa fra A e F. Ciascun Istituto ha facoltà di decidere come applicare la scala di valutazione ECTS in base al proprio sistema.

Il voto ECTS non è destinato a sostituire i voti locali, ma deve essere uno strumento aggiuntivo che consenta di tradurre, trascrivere e convertire in modo efficace e flessibile (considerata la varietà di sistemi di classificazione non può, di per sé, coprire tutti i casi possibili) un voto da un Istituto all’altro. Il voto ECTS è indicato accanto all’elenco degli esami sostenuti (Trancript of Records) rilasciato dalla Istituzione ospitante alla chiusura della mobilità. Gli Istituti di provenienza hanno poi l’obbligo di convertire il voto ECTS. Si consiglia una certa flessibilità, poiché la scala di valutazione ECTS è stato progettato per migliorare la trasparenza di una varietà di sistemi di classificazione e non può, di per sé, coprire tutti i casi possibili.

Erasmus Policy Statement

Vita-Salute San Raffaele University mobility project was born – and renewed yearly – from the analysis of the training needs of the University and its staff and it is a priority objective in the context of our strategies aimed at the improvement of teaching and training activities.

The context in which the program was born is certainly different from the present. The University was founded in 1996; while finding immediately its place as part of the training and education offer of the newborn University, the program begins to grow in quantitative terms by the activation of the LLP. The innovative potential of the new project and the media coverage that accompanied the launch helped to develop greater interest and awareness of the program among students, faculty and administrative staff so that it became a part of the institutional plan of international development.

Basic part of the University strategies, the mobility project has had over the years an increasing impact on the quality of teaching and learning. Despite a mobility rate equal to approximately 2% of the total enrolled students, the level of quality of experience – guaranteed by the commitment of the University in supporting and promoting it through the identification of qualified staff appointed to the oversight and the organization of the mobility flows – it is certainly the additional value.

The staff involved ensures the necessary support for the preparation, implementation and recognition of the activities carried out during the period of mobility as well as disseminates information about the Programme; it is involved not only in program management but also in a more large internationalization process that identifies the raising of networks of excellence and joint projects of mobility which contribute to increase the national and international attractiveness of the Institute.

Participation in the Program Erasmus + has in fact exercised an unquestionably positive impact on our university in terms of:

  1.  internationalization of the university profile, through the processes of recruitment and partnerships with other institutions;
  2.  internationalization of the curriculum of the students;
  3. extension and expansion of the training and education programs;
  4. ability to develop an international network in the field of education;
  5. commitment to implement an institutional strategy aimed to the increase of training offer on the basis of equal opportunity, according non-discriminatory attitude and deep appreciation of differences (ethnic, religious, etc.) with a view to the development of an international and motivating learning environment.

The University – thanks to assistance provided by the relevant offices – has also always supported and promoted the staff mobility according to an enrichment of the educational and administrative know-how essential for the implementation and development of partnerships between universities of the European Community area.

The support and promotion of student mobility in both outgoing and incoming mobility (Study and Traineeship), thanks to the cooperation of the qualified Office the Degree Courses Faculty Staff, the website and the students INTRANET pages, is accomplished by providing students with information and support to the organization, implementation and recognition of activities carried out during the period of mobility.

The increase of foreign students in the University – already partially achieved by implementing the International MD Program, the International School of Doctoral Research in Molecular Medicine and the School of Doctorate in Philosophy and Science of Mind – is constantly supported through the organization of several seminars and scientific training sessions taught in English so to promote the inclusion and integration of students in the regular activities of the University.

Since the University considers the teachers and staff mobility important for personal and cultural enrichment and essential for the implementation of relations among universities, these activities are sponsored and supported thanks to the assistance provided by the qualified offices in order to facilitate the performance.

Moreover the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University has implemented and promoted agreements aimed to the achievement of double degrees especially in the field of post-graduate and Ph.D. education.

The Vita-Salute San Raffaele University has always aimed to provide high quality services; for this reason the University has sought and obtained “ISO 9001:2008 certification” for all the undergraduate degree courses, the post graduated programs in the medical area as well as for most of the services and activities provided. The Moreover the University is strongly oriented to achieve certification for those areas not included yet.
