The receiving organisation must be a Programme Country HEI awarded with an ECHE.

If applicants would like to visit a non-partner HEI, they may talk with the related institution in order to initiate Erasmus+ interinstitutional agreement which may be found in the above website (“Erasmus Agreement Draft”). The Erasmus+ interinstitutional agreement must be finalized before mobility takes place.

 

Important Notice: Participants are expected to realize their mobility in the Universities which they have already applied. Since each country has a different amount of daily grant, it will not be possible for participants to change their destinations with another country having higher amount of daily grant or travel support.

 

4.0. Duration of the Activities:

 The teaching activity can take place between 2 days and 5 days excluding travel time. In all cases, a teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week (or any shorter period of stay). If the teaching activity/teaching hours last less than 2 days/8 hours (minimum requirement), the activity is considered as void and the grant payment is not made for the related activity.

 

Officially, Erasmus+ KA103 Staff Mobility for Teaching Assignments activity for 2017 project term takes place between the dates: 01.06.2017-31.10.2018. However, the grants have not been transferred to our University account by the Turkish National Agency and it is expected that the grants would be transferred around September-October, 2017. For this reason, participants are encouraged to realize their mobility programs after that date.

 

 

Important Notice: For the duration of the activity, the durations indicated by the applicants themselves were taken into account. The applied durations are indicated in the announced list.
