What is Erasmus? Who can apply? Application Form


This activity, which was named as faaliyet Student Exchange inde activity in Socrates II Period, was realized as Student Learning Mobility activity within the scope of Lifelong Learning Program between 2007-2013, and it will continue as Erasmus+ Student Learning Mobility between 2014-2020.

With the Erasmus + Student Mobility of Study, students have the chance to become an exchange student at one of the other Erasmus University Charter institutions for one or two (3-12 months) terms in one academic year and receive financial support for their stay abroad within the program. The financial support will not be reimbursed and is not intended to cover all the costs of the students, but merely to assist in the additional costs arising from mobility. The selected students can be Erasmus students as "Erasmus students (with 0 grants)".

Erasmus + Learning Mobility can be made within the scope of inter-institutional agreements. Institutions declare their applications to their students in order to determine the Erasmus students who will go under their existing agreements. Mobility can only be carried out among institutions that have an Erasmus University Charter with which they have agreements with each other. In order to benefit from Learning Mobility, students should apply to the Erasmus Coordinatorship of their institution and be involved in the selection process. Each institution determines its own application and election dates. The European Union Education and Youth Programs Center sets annual national priorities and criteria for selection for Erasmus students to be selected before the commencement of the mobility period. Higher education institutions elect their students according to the selection criteria determined by the European Union Center for Education and Youth Programs.

Students can benefit from more than one mobility, provided that they do not exceed a total of 12 months in each of the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral semesters. Receiving an internship mobility grant is not an obstacle to receiving a learning mobility grant. Please refer to the Erasmus + National Call for Proposals for the relevant academic year.
