• This mobility activity is carried out within the framework of the Higher Education Erasmus Declaration and the existing inter-institutional agreements of the Higher Education Institution. (Mobility for Studies is carried out only between parner institutions, it will not be possible to carry out mobility with a higher education institution that is not a partner one.)
  • The activity consists of a student who is registered in a higher education institution and performing a part of his/her education in a higher education institution abroad which is partnered with an inter-institutional agreement.
  • The students who will participate in the activity must be full-time students. Graduated students/students who froze their education cannot benefit from the mobility for studies.


  • Minimum and maximum periods determined by the European Commission.
  • The minimum period for mobility for studies is full 3 months and the maximum period is full 12 months.
  • The activity period should be carried out uninterrupted. Semester breaks and official holidays cannot be considered as an interruption in mobility for studies.


  • The student mobility period of a student in the same learning cycle (undergraduate, graduate, Ph.D.), if applicable the student mobility period made in the period of Lifelong Learning Program and the student mobility period in Erasmus+ period, cannot exceed 12 months in total. The total period of student mobility activities made in the same learning cycle, even though a grant was not given, should be planned as not to exceed 12 months.
  • If the student benefited from Erasmus+ and Lifelong Learning (LLP) within higher education mobility activities in the current education level, the total duration of the new activity and the previous one should not exceed 12 months in total.
  • In the subject areas, where two cycles are combined and two cycles are completed in one stage (such as Medicine Education), the total activity period is 24 months.


Students should meet the following minimum requirements to participate in the activity.

  • The student should be a full-time student at any of the formal education cycles (first, second or third cycles) and enrolled in a higher education program within a higher education institution.
  • Cumulative academic grade point average of first-cycle (associate/undergraduate degree) students should be at least 2.20/2.00
  • Cumulative academic grade point average of second and third-cycle (graduate and doctorate level) students should be at least 2.50/4.00.
  • Having sufficient number of ECTS credit (at least 30 ECTS)
  • If s/he benefited from activities at the present learning cycle, the total period should not exceed 12 months.

Evaluation criteria and weighted points are as such:


  • The transcript of the student should meet the minimum requirements at the application.
  • In the determination of the grade point average, the latest transcript of the student is used.
  • Using the current transcript issued by the higher education institution of the student (where the elections are made) is the rule. The students, who apply in their first semester at the higher education institution at the graduate or Ph.D. cycle, when their transcript at that institution has not been prepared yet,  can use the graduation grade they received in the prior higher education cycle.
  • Similarly, grade point averages (received from prior higher education institution) of the students, who are transferred from other higher education institutions through internal transfer or external transfer and do not have a transcript in that higher education institution that will provide a selection data, are taken into consideration.

*Academic accreditation, original codes and names of the courses which have been taken at the host institution are going to be reflected on the students’ transcript of records.

The countries where student mobility activities can be carried out are divided into 3 groups, and monthly study and traineeship grants are determined for country groups. Country groups and monthly grant amounts that will be given to the students going to those countries are taken place in the following table:

  • The quota is determined by calculating the grant budget that is allocated by Turkey's National Agency on one term (5 months), taking 1st grant group into consideration. If the grant is increased, applications of the students on the waiting list will be evaluated. 
  • Students are paid in 2 installments, 80% of the grant is paid before the mobility and 20% upon the successful completion of the mobility (Students have to show a success level of 2/3)
