- It is carried out within the scope of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education and the international agreements of the higher education institution.
- Students, who enrolled in the higher education institutions as a part of formal education, can participate in the student mobility in higher education. Students, who study in the Open University and similar programs (distance education) cannot benefit from the activity.
- The activity is the actualization of a part of the education of the student, who is enrolled in a higher education institution, in another higher education institution abroad, which is partnered with an international agreement.
- First grade students of the associate degree programs and undergraduate programs, and the graduated students cannot benefit from the study mobility activity.
PERIODS IN STUDY MOBILITY
- Minimum and Maximum Periods for a Single Activity are carried out in accordance with the minimum and maximum periods determined by the European Commission.
- The minimum period for study mobility is full 3 months and the maximum period is full 12 months. -The minimum period for traineeship mobility is full 2 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 interruption in study mobility.
LIMIT OF THE TOTAL ACTIVITY PERIOD
- The student mobility periods of a student in the same learning stage (undergraduate, graduate, PhD), 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 periods of student mobility activities made in the same learning stage, even though a grant was not given, should be planned as not to exceed 12 months.
- When the student completes his/her education in the current learning stage and moves to a new learning stage (completing undergraduate education and starting to graduate education), it is possible to carry out a new mobility up to 12 months at most at the new learning stage. Therefore, it is possible for the same person to carry out mobility up to 36 months at most, for being up to 12 months at most at every learning stage.
- A part of this mobility can be education and a part of it can be traineeship. However, if this is the case, minimum limits of this mobility should be respected.
- In the subject areas, where two stages are combined and two stages are completed in one stage (such as Medicine Education), 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 stages (first, second or third stages) and enrolled in a higher education program within a higher education institution.
- a-) Cumulative academic grade point average of first grade students should be at leas 2.20/2.00
b-) Cumulative academic grade point average of second and third grade students should be at least 2.50/4.00.
- For the study mobility: Having sufficient number of ECTS credit burden
- 4- If s/he benefited from activities at the present learning stage, the total period should not exceed 12 months.
Evaluation criteria and weighted points are such:
Academic success level: 50%
Language level: 50% (Over a total of 100 points)
For disabled students (provided that disability is documented) + 10 points
Benefiting previously (with or without grant): -10 point
Participating in mobility where being a citizen: -10 point
- The transcript of the student should meet the minimum requirements at the application stage.
- In the determination of the grade point average, the latest transcript of the student is used.
- While using the up-to-date transcript issued by the higher education institution of the student (where the elections are made) is the rule, the students, who applies in the first semester of the higher education institution at the graduate or PhD level, when a transcript at that institution has not come into existence yet, use the graduation grade they received in the prior higher education stage.
- Similarly, grade point averages (received from prior higher education institution) of the students, who are transferred from other higher education institution through undergraduate transfer or external transfer and not having a transcript in that higher education institution that will make the selection, are taken into consideration.
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:
Country Groups According to the Cost of Living
Host Countries in Mobility
Monthly Study Grant (Euro)
Monthly Traineeship Grant (Euro)
1st and 2nd Group Program Countries
United Kingdom, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Sweden, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Greek Cypriot State, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Greece
3rd Group Program Countries
Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey
*Students are not provided additional support for round trip tickets between program countries for study and traineeship mobility.
CALCULATION OF PERIOD AND GRANT
- The activity periods and grants of students are inferentially calculated before the activity starts.
- Final periods and grants are determined again after the activity ends.
