Student mobility for studies

All participating Program Country organizations (both sending and receiving) must be HEIs awarded with an ECHE. All Partner Country organizations must be HEIs and have signed inter-institutional agreements  with their Program  Country partners before the mobility takes place.

Duration of the activity

 From 3 to 12 months (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned). 

The same student may participate in mobility periods totaling up to 12 months  maximum per each cycle of study , independently from the number and type of mobility activities. Participation with a zero-grant from EU funds counts as well towards this maximum duration:

  • during the first study cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) including the short-cycle (EQF levels 5 and 6);
  • during the second study cycle (Master or equivalent - EQF level 7); and
  • during the third cycle as doctoral candidate (doctoral level or EQF level 8).  

Venue(s) of the activity

Students must carry out their mobility activity in a Program or Partner Country different from the country of the sending organization and the country where the student has his/her accommodation during his/her studies.

Eligible participants

Students registered in a HEI and enrolled in studies leading to a recognized degree or another recognized tertiary level qualification (up to and including the level of doctorate). In case of mobility for studies, the student must be enrolled at least in the second year of higher education studies. For traineeships, this condition does not apply.Recent higher education graduates may participate in a traineeship. Recent graduates must be selected by their HEI during their last year of study, and must carry out and complete their traineeship abroad within one year of obtaining their graduation.

Important Notes about Student Mobility

   Course Registration and Academic Fees

The equivalent courses, which the students have to take in our university, are determined, and recognition of the courses are recorded and guaranteed by the student's own institution and another institution that the student visits via Learning Agreement signed before the mobility period. Contents of courses do not have to be the same, they are just supposed to be mostly similar. While making course selection, the students must aim 30 ECTS credit for one term and 60 ECTS credit for the whole academic year. The students who accomplish 2/3 of all courses during the time they are abroad are accepted successful in Turkey as well whereas the students who fail will have to take the courses that they cannot pass in Turkey when they turn back.

National scholarships that students gain cannot be cut or reduced during the process of their education abroad. Grants are paid by 2 installments to the students that will benefit from the activity. The amount of first installment is decided by the National Agency on condition that it is less than % 80 of total amount, and the first installment is paid before the students leave for the activity. The second installment is paid when the students return and after they hand in Final Report, Academic Record and Certificate of Attendance. The students can only get grants for the time they have been abroad for Erasmus program. If the students stay shorter period than planned, they are just paid for the period that they have stayed.

Erasmus + program is not ;

1.     exactly a scholarship program.

2.     a diploma program.

3.     a foreign language-learning program.

While evaluating the applicants of student mobility for traineeships, the commission takes % 55 of grade-point average and % 45 of language achievement.

Home Institutions must be enterprises, education centers, research centers and other institutions. Institutions below are not appropriate for Erasmus Traineeship Mobility;

·        EU Institutions and EU Agencies

·        Institutions that conduct EU programs and receive grant in this sense

·        our national agents in the countries visited

Who Can Benefit from Traineeship Mobility?

All students included post-graduates can benefit from the program in all of the universities which are subject to Erasmus University charter. Unlike student mobility for studies, the program does not require to be at least second grade. While selecting first grade students, grade-point average at the end of first term is taken into account. Each students gets grant just once for placement activity abroad.  The fact that students have disciplinary punishment or failed courses does not prevent them  benefiting from Erasmus programs.
