Before Mobility


Period before your mobility


It is our job to ensure that the selection procedures for mobility activities are fair, transparent, coherent and documented. We make sure that the outgoing mobile participants are well prepared for their activities abroad, by undertaking activities to achieve the necessary level of linguistic proficiency and develop their intercultural competences.

Our International Relations Office will provide assistance related to obtaining visas and insurance, when required, and we will make sure that the chosen students are aware of their rights and obligations as defined in the Erasmus Student Charter.

According to the Erasmus Student Charter, these activities will take place:

  1. Once you have been selected as an Erasmus+ student, you are entitled to receive guidance regarding the partner institutions or enterprises where you can spend your mobility period and the activities that you can undertake there.
  2. You have the right to receive information on the grading system used by your receiving institution, as well as information on obtaining insurance and finding housing, and securing a visa (if required). You can find the relevant contact points and information sources in the inter-institutional agreement signed between your sending and receiving institutions.
  3. You will sign a Grant Agreement (even if you do not receive financial support from EU funds). If you are enrolled in a higher education institution located in a Programme Country, you will sign the Grant Agreement with your sending institution. If you are enrolled in a higher education institution located in a Partner Country, you may sign it with your sending or receiving institution, depending on the agreed arrangements.
  4. In addition, you will sign a Learning Agreement with your sending and receiving institution/enterprise. Thorough preparation of your Learning Agreement is crucial for the success of your mobility experience and to ensure recognition of your mobility period. It sets out the details of your planned activities abroad (including the credits to be earned and that will count towards your home degree).
  5. After you have been selected, you will undergo an on-line language assessment (provided this is available in your main language of instruction/work abroad) that will allow your sending institution to offer you the most appropriate language support, if required. You should take full advantage of this support to improve your language skills to the level recommended by your receiving institution.
