ERASMUS+ KA107 International Credit Mobility Programme (ICM Programme

►What is International Credit Mobility?

For 30 years, the European Union has funded the Erasmus programme which has enabled over 4 million European students to spend part of their studies in another higher education institution (HEI) in Europe. In 2015, Erasmus+ opened up these opportunities to individuals and organisations from other parts of the world. Through the new "International Credit Mobility" action - ICM for short - European HEIs can now set up mobility agreements with partners around the world, to send and receive students and staff.

►Erasmus Student Mobility

Student mobility for studies, open to short cycle, first cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) or second cycle (Master or equivalent) students, as well as third cycle doctoral candidates. The mobility period can last from 3 months (or one academic term) to 12 months.

Student mobility for traineeships, open to short cycle, first cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) or second cycle (Master or equivalent) students, as well as third cycle doctoral candidates as from 2018. The mobility period can last from 2 to 12 months.

Traineeship” involves vocational training and/or work experience related to the student’s study field. Traineeship mobility may be voluntary and does not need to be embedded in the student’s study programme.

The same student may participate in mobility periods totalling up to 12 months maximum per each cycle of study, independently of the number and type of mobility activities. Participation with a zero-grant from EU funds counts as well towards this maximum duration.

Important Reminder:

The medium of instruction at Ondokuz Mayis University (OMU) is mostly Turkish at all levels and programs.

►How to apply?

The application process is started by the Erasmus + KA107 incoming staff & student application call that Ondokuz Mayıs University International Relations Office sends via e-mail to all the partner institutions. The partner institutions nominate their candidates. Staff and student selections must be done by an Erasmus selection commission of at least 5 members and this commission must be appointed by your university legal representative and approved by the Rectorate. The decisions with the lists of the students and staff (both awarded and reserve lists) must be approved by the commission members (with signatures on each page) and these approved decisions need to be sent via e-mail to erasmus@omu.edu.tr. Applications without official nominations will not be accepted.

►Next step

After we received the selection decision from the student's home University, students will need to complete the LA form, application form and first contact and accommodation form. Students will also need to send us their latest transcript of records document. Again, we prefer them to be sent including all the signatures and seals.

Essential forms:
1. Application Form 
2. Learning Agreement for Study Students or Learning Agreement for Traineeship Students

►Erasmus+ KA107 ICM Programme Grants for Student Mobility:

Travel Grant

In addition to the monthly grants, the travel grant is calculated by using the “Distance Calculator” below:

http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/tools/distance_en.htm

The distance calculator is used to determine the distance between the location where the student is residing and the place of activity. The kilometres in distance calculated by the distance calculator corresponds to the round-trip and the amount does not get multiplied by two.

The survey must be completed within 15 days after the survey link has been sent to the student. The completed survey is considered a request for the remaining 30% grant which will be made within 30 proceeding days.
