Selected students will be able to get detailed information for Erasmus+ process in their advisor meeting which will be organized on 8 January 2018, Wednesday (12:30-13:30) 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 childrens of martyries and veterans.

-  10 points was decreased from overall score of the students if they withdraw from 2017/2018 Erasmus program after 28 December 2017. 

 

Grant Conditions:

 

Students selected for this program will receive 650 Euro per month and also travel support ranging from 275-1100 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) In previous years, transfer of credits for courses taken during mobility were done as described below:

«According to the complementary grades in METU, CC and above for undergrad students and BB and above for grad students if deemed applicable by department, counted as passed in student’s curriculum. Student receives “EX” grade and considered “exempt” from these courses and these grades are not taken into consideration in grade point average (GPA) calculation. These courses are shown as registered in the mobility semester of student. These courses that are registered as “exempt” in METU have their names and codes from the host university indicated in “remarks” part of the transcript. »

 

Starting from this year:

Our university’s Mobility Programs Commission suggested Transfer of credits with grades due to the request of full recognition by European Commission and Turkish National Agency. Within the scope of this suggestion, courses taken during the mobility programs may be taken into consideration during the calculation of CGPAs. Related suggestion is not officially approved yet, but the expected decision is transfer of courses with grades. Thus, beneficiaries of the mobility programs should be aware that their grades for the courses taken during mobility can be included in their CGPA in METU, if the related suggestion is confirmed by the University Senate.

 

4) 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.
