During the period of your mobility

  1. You should take full advantage of all the learning opportunities available at the receiving institution/enterprise, while respecting its rules and regulations, and endeavour to perform to the best of your ability in all relevant examinations or other forms of assessment.
  2. Your receiving institution/ enterprise commits itself to treat you in the same way as its home students/employees and you should make all the necessary efforts to fit into your new environment.
  3. You could benefit from networks of mentors and buddies where available at your receiving institution/ enterprise.
  4. Your receiving institution will not ask you to pay fees for tuition, registration, examinations or for access to laboratory and library facilities during your mobility period. Nevertheless, you may be charged a small fee on the same basis as local students for costs such as insurance, student unions and the use of study-related materials or equipment.
  5. Your student grant or student loan from your home country must be maintained while you are abroad.
  6. You can request changes to the Learning Agreement only in exceptional circumstances and within the deadline decided by your sending and receiving institutions. You must ensure that these changes are validated by both the sending and receiving institutions / enterprise within a two-week period after the request has been submitted and keep copies of their approval. Any request to extend the duration of the mobility period must be submitted at least one month before the end of the originally planned period.

If you encounter a problem:

  • You should identify the problem clearly and check your rights and obligations under your Grant Agreement.
  • There are a number of people working in your sending and receiving institutions whose role is to help Erasmus+ students. Depending on the nature of the problem and the time it occurs, the contact person or the responsible person at your sending or receiving institution (or receiving enterprise in case of a traineeship) will be able to help you. Their names and contact details are specified in your Learning Agreement.
  • Use the formal appeal procedures in your sending institution if necessary.
  • If your sending or receiving institution fails to fulfill the obligations outlined in the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education or in your Grant Agreement, you can contact the relevant National Agency.
