Erasmus+ aims to improve the quality of higher education and strengthen its European dimension. It does this by encouraging transnational cooperation between universities, fostering the European mobility of students and teachers, and contributing to improved transparency and academic recognition of qualifications and studies throughout the European Union.
How does it work?
Higher education institutions apply for the Erasmus+ University Charter (EUC) to the European Commission. The awarding of an EUC gives the institution the right to participate in activities supported by the Erasmus programme. Once an institution receives a Charter, it can apply for funding for activities such as Student Mobility and Curriculum Development projects.
To apply to IAU for Erasmus+ Exchange Program your university needs to have a current Inter-Institutional Agreement with Istanbul Aydin University and you need to be nominated to study at IAU. You can find here the list with our partner universities.
A Step By Step Guide
Contact your Local Erasmus+ Coordinator at your Home University If you intend to study at Istanbul Aydin University first check with your Coordinator at your home university if our universities have a inter institutional agreement between them. After this, discuss your application with her/him. If there isn´t a inter institutional agreement between our universities but you are interested in studying with us write to the Erasmus+ Coordinator of our University and suggest the implementation of a inter institutional agreement. If they are willing to cooperate we will establish a inter institutional agreement and after the existence of this agreement you can proceed to the next step.
Check the Courses Available at our University. At this address you can find the list of subjects available at our University. You will use them to fill in the learning agreement.
