After the evaluation, all eligible candidates will be placed in a partner university regarding their grade and quotas.

 

TOTAL QUOTA FOR 2020-2021 ACADEMIC YEAR

 As a result of this call, KHU Erasmus Commission will determine number of students with grant or without grant according to the KHU total grant and departmental quota as Erasmus+ mobility selected candidates. All the other eligible applications will be placed as Erasmus+ mobility wait-listed candidates based on the departmental quota. Wait-listed student list will be taken into consideration in case of any cancellations on the main list, as well as, any quota additions based on the budget availability.

Therefore, please note that being selected as an Erasmus student exchange candidate at KHU does not mean that you will definitely be able to go on exchange mobility. The final list of the students benefiting from the Erasmus study mobility will be subject to the following:

1) Announcement of the results of KHU’s grant application to the Turkish National Agency.

2) Countries of destination students prefer to go, considering there are two different groups of countries according to their cost of living

3) In order to make more students from different departments benefit from the available grants, Erasmus Commission applies the principle of "undergraduate/graduate level quotas" and "departmental quotas" as stated above for the selection of the students.

 

 STUDY MOBILITY CHOICES ON THE APPLICATION FORM

 

Erasmus student mobility for studies is carried out in the framework of prior inter-institutional (bilateral) agreements between home and host institutions, both of which must be holders of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.

To ensure high-quality mobility activities with maximum impact on the students, the mobility activity should respond to student degree-related learning. The study period abroad must be part of the student’s study program at KHU to complete a degree at undergraduate or graduate level.

If you are doing a double major, please note that you can only use one of your majors to apply for Erasmus study mobility and you will be subject to your selected major’s departmental quota and available Erasmus bilateral agreements. If you are doing a minor, please note that you cannot apply from your minor program.

You will make five university choices on the application form in order of preference. Please check the list of universities and quotes on “List of Partners” page. Therefore, please see your "Erasmus and Exchange Departmental Representatives" for better course and university selection.

For partner universities, where language of instruction is predominantly the native language of the country, not English, applicants with additional knowledge of that language will have priority over those without any knowledge of that specific language in the placement process. If you are applying to be placed in a university where you will be studying in a language other than English, you will be asked to provide a document to KHU Erasmus and Exchange Office showing your level of language proficiency in that language.

 

 MOBILITY DURATION CHOICES ON THE APPLICATION FORM

 

The duration of mobility is between 3 and 12 months within the same academic year. Students should be able to complete 30 ECTS credits of course load for each academic term of mobility.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will have three options in the application form regarding the time of your mobility: fall term, spring term, and full academic year. You can pick only one of these options.

 

ERASMUS+ WITH GRANT OPTION

 

Erasmus students will be granted according to the study destination if they would like to get grant. Grant payment is subject to the amount of applications received, potential destination of the applicants and availability of funds from the Turkish National Agency. 

Please note that Erasmus grants are only contribution, meaning may not suffice for all your expenses and students are responsible for their own travelling costs and living expenses during the exchange. Amount of monthly grants is announced by Turkish National Agency according to the cost of living in the country of destination, grouped in three categories:
