Goverment of Canada has a new initiative named as Global Affairs Canada-funded Study in Canada Scholarships competition. This program is part of GAC’s suite of Short-term Exchange Programs (SEP) that provide funding to international students to study or conduct research at Canadian post-secondary institutions for a duration of four to six months. METU students who are intersted in applying to Canadian institutions may be nominated to METU's partner in Canada if they have placed to a university by ICO. However, scholarship is not automatic and METU student candidate will be officially nominated by METU's Canadian partner university to the Study in Canada Scholarships.

PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENT (updated as above):

Overseas Exchange is a program which allows students to visit a partner university for one semester or one academic year within the scope of bilateral exchange agreements between METU and a partner institution abroad. These programs are not under European Union Erasmus+ or Turkish Council of Higher Education's (YOK) Mevlana programs. Each program under the Overseas Exchange is unique because each one of them is run according to a specific agreement, which may have its own terms and conditions, signed between METU and its partner. METU does not provide any scholarships for this program but students are waived from paying tuition fee to the partner institution. The students who wish to participate in this program will apply to METU and are subject to a fair selection process designed by our university. 

Outgoing Student Application for 2022-2023 Academic Year within METU's Overseas Exchange Programs is planned to be held between February 21 and March 7, 2022, which are the same dates with Erasmus+ KA131 program applications. Students may prefer either program but more and detailed information concerning the application terms and conditions will be announced in the coming weeks. Please follow ICO's announcements if you plan to make an application to Overseas Mobility Programs. In case of postponement of the application dates of Overseas Mobility Programs, ICO will make a new announcement prior to the application start date.
