Students can participate in learning mobility until their graduation. Also, with the amendment made in the new period, new graduates are allowed to benefit from student internship activities. This new regulation allows the students to have a chance to do their internship for 2-12 months within 1 year after their graduation. If the student wishes to take advantage of postgraduate internship activities, s/he should apply to the higher education institution and be elected while their education continues. After the graduation, the application is not accepted.
No, student and staff mobility activities can be realized only through higher education institutions in which you are a member.
Students can do their internship in a foundation found by the higher education institution or find a foundation themselves or apply to EU offices of their institutions. Students who apply to the internship foundations recommended by the higher education institution or those who apply according to the selection criteria related to the academic year concerned can realize their mobility.
If there is no grant to extend the period, the student may be allowed to stay for another term without any grant given, providing all the rules of the program and with the consent of the university. On the other hand, extending the term is only valid when the student stays in the same university. To participate in the exchange program for the second time in a different country, there has to be a new process of application and selection.
The agreements between the institutions are signed between the faculties/ departments of the institutions' authorized people providing an amount of student/staff making output for an amount of time. Students do not have the right to make an agreement with the institutions but they may help the authorities to find a partner, however an agreement cannot be for the students themselves even if they pave the way for. All the agreements are on behalf of institutions and are open participation of all students.
