2019-2020 Selection List

 

For the students who were placed at a university with or without grant, it is not possible to change their university for any reason

 

  • Placed with Grant: Students who were placed at a university and received Erasmus+ grant.
  • Placed without Grant: Students who were placed at a university without Erasmus+ grant (due to grant quota specific to each country) are “reserve for grant (hibe için yedek)”. These students may receive Erasmus+ grant if a granted student in the same country withdraws from the program and no new students get placed in that quota with a higher Overall Score.
  • Not Placed –Reserve: Students who were not able to be placed at a university are “reserve for university quota (yerleştirme için yedek)”, and may be considered as “reserve for grant (hibe için yedek)” afterwards. These students may have the chance to be placed at a university (until June 28, 2019) if students on the main list withdraw from the program. They may also receive Erasmus grant if they have the highest Overall Score in the country they have been placed at (this process depends on the Overall Score and country/university quotas). Because of the application deadlines of the universities and the budget allocations, there will not be replacements for “not placed-reserve students” after June 28, 2019.

 

*** Please read the attached info sheet and the information below carefully. ***

(Yerleştiği üniversiteye gitmekten vazgeçen öğrencilerin 18 Ocak 2019, öğlen saat 12.00'ye kadar Uluslararası İşbirliği Ofisi’ne bilgi vermeleri gerekmektedir (Burcu Akpınar: akkol@metu.edu.tr). 18 Ocak 2019’dan sonra mücbir bir sebebe dayanmaksızın programdan çekilen öğrenciler, (aynı akademik seviye içindeki) bir sonraki Erasmus başvurularında (Şubat ayında alınacak Avrupa içi Erasmus+ program başvuruları da dahil olmak üzere) 10 puan kaybedeceklerdir. Puan kesintisi için bu başvuru döneminde seçilmiş olmak (henüz programdan yararlanılmasa da) yeterli olacaktır.

 

Selected students will be able to get detailed information for Erasmus+ process in their advisor meeting which will be organized on 8 January 2019, Tuesday (11:00-12:00) at Solmaz İzdemir Hall (Library Building). As it will not be possible for advisors to explain the whole process to each student individually, it is compulsory to attend this meeting.

 

Selection Criteria:

Students’ semester, department, overall grade and agreement quotas as well as academic assessment of the departments have been taken into consideration during the selection process.

According to program regulations, 50% of CGPA and 50% of the English language test score are taken into account in electing prospective Erasmus students.

Besides, before calculating the 50% of the CGPA, a coefficient is applied on the CGPA according to the applicants' department and semester information as below:

Student CGPA: 3.15

CGPA of the related department's students in the same semester with the applicant: 2.89

Ratio: 3.15/2.89 = 1.09

25*+1.09=26.09

Overall Erasmus application score: 3.15x26.09 = 82.18

*the convergent factor to calculate 50% of the CGPA = 25

 

In addition:

  • 10 points were added to the Overall Score of the students with disabilities.
  • 10 points were deduced from the Overall Score of those students who have participated in any of the Erasmus programs in the same study cycle (10 points deduced per each participation).
  • 15 points was added to the overall score of the students who are the children of martyrs and veterans.
  • 10 points was added to the overall score of the students who have been under protection by 2828 Social Services Law.
  • 10 points was decreased from overall score of the students if they withdraw from 2018/2019 Erasmus programs (study or internship programs with European or non-European countries) after the announced deadlines.  

 

Grant Conditions:

Students selected for this program will receive 700 Euro per month and also travel support ranging from 275-1500 Euro according to distance between Ankara and the city that they will study.

It is possible to participate in the program without grant as well.

Students with disabilities can apply for additional funds if they are placed for a university.

 

Important Notice:

1) At the beginning of your Erasmus programme, you are expected to take 30 ECTS of 5 courses* and indicate those courses at Learning Agreement Before the Mobility. If the students cannot pass at least 20 ECTS credits out of 30, 30% of their grant will not be paid.

If partner university’s credits are systematically low (2-3 ECTS) for all courses or if the partner university does not use ECTS credits, ECTS course weights are evaluated on a number of courses basis (5 courses).

**Students who cannot satisfy 20 ECTS course load with 5 courses are required to pass 3/5 of the courses taken

*The courses taken in the host university must be recognized at METU after return.

2) The courses completed successfully in the host university must be transferred into METU after return.

3) After the announcement of results, selected candidates will apply for the partner universities with the guidance of the ICO advisor. Please note that partner universities may have additional requirements (like minimum CGPA, language document etc.). Partner universities reserve the right to deny the application of the nominees that do not meet their requirements. Therefore, placement by METU does not guarantee your acceptance from the partner university due to their CGPA, language, department, etc. restrictions.
