Who is eligible for an Erasmus+ Traineeship at IAU?
Students registered at a Higher Education Institution and enrolled in studies leading to a recognized degree can participate in the Erasmus+ Traineeship Programme. Recent higher education graduates may also participate in the traineeship and must be selected by their home institution during their last year of study and must carry out and complete the traineeship abroad within 12 months of obtaining their degree.
The sending institution must be awarded an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education*. Although the existence of an Erasmus+ Inter-institutional Agreement between the sending institution and Istanbul Aydın Unıversıty is not compulsory, we advise all interested students to contact their Erasmus+ Office and suggest the implementation of an Erasmus+ Inter-institutional Agreement for traineeships.
