What is Erasmus?
Erasmus+ KA103/KA131 is an EU program intended to promote student and faculty mobility and encourage cross-border cooperation between European universities. Grants are available for exchange programs and also for student internships. Students studying abroad in the 28 EU member countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, the FYR of Macedonia, and Turkey are eligible to apply for Erasmus+ grants. Inter-institutional agreements between our university (home institution) and partner university (host institution) are required to studying in abroad as outgoing students with the Erasmus program.
The advantage of the Erasmus program is a possible opportunity to get an Erasmus grant as a contribution to cover expenses (such as accommodation, travel costs etc). Erasmus grants are changing regarding country groups.
What does Erasmus+ have to offer?
- You can participate in a 2-12 month period of study abroad at one of the Altınbaş University’s Erasmus+ partner universities during the academic year (1 September through 30 August of the following year).
- Students participating in the Erasmus program continue to pay tuition fees at Altınbaş University but are exempt from tuition at the host university, where they spend their semester/year abroad. (social security contributions, insurance, and teaching materials are not considered as tuition fees).
- The Altınbaş University supports you with planning and organising your study abroad stay. Generally, your host university assists you with finding housing by providing pre-semester information as well as a stay-supporting programme.
- You can take affordable language courses before your studies begin and/or while you study.
- You have access to a mobility grant (ranging from 300 to 600 euros, depending on the host country) to cover part of the added expense of living abroad.
- Your coursework completed abroad can be recognised in Altınbaş.
- If you have a disability or are a single parent, then special financial support is available for your study abroad. Please contact us for more information.
Which aims does the programme have?
The programme should:
- enable students to gain experiences in other European countries and gain additional language, cultural and subject-specific skills through these study opportunities;
- enrich universities with the impulses provided by visiting students and lecturers;
- promote cooperation between host and home universities;
- to promote a greater interconnectedness in Europe by encouraging qualified, open and internationally experienced young people to study at least two European universities;
- cover a portion of the additional costs of studying abroad and thus make it easier for students to finance a stay abroad.
- Undergraduate students must have completed at least one academic year and graduate students must have completed at least one semester of their academic program at the time of application.
- Applications are received regularly for the following academic year and this means that a 1st-year student accepted for Erasmus attends the university abroad (host university) in his/her second year in either the Fall or Spring semester.
- Türkiye scholarship students are allowed to participate in the Erasmus+ exchange program, but they will not be receiving a scholarship from YTB during their exchange period. In order to participate in the program, students should inform Altınbaş University Erasmus Office with a petition.
- Students may continue to receive scholarships, grants and loans as if they are in Turkey.
- Participating in the Erasmus program does not mean the student is transferring to another university. Students can participate in the Erasmus program for a maximum of 12 months. Students must return to Altınbaş University at the end of the Erasmus period and complete their program at Altınbaş University
Important Note: Switzerland is not an Erasmus+ program country. Even though the selection and application process is conducted by our Office for all countries, students who are nominated to Switzerland are not funded by the Turkish National Agency. Applications for Switzerland are done as part of the Global Exchange program.

If you would like to extend your Erasmus+ stay, you will need to email a request to email@example.com as soon as possible.
Your one-semester stay can be extended by an additional semester as long as your Learning Agreement is amended accordingly and your host university as well as your departmental coordinator in Altınbaş support the extension. As long as funds are available, you can also extend your funding period too. Therefore you have to hand in a fully filled and signed application for extension along with a Learning Agreement listing the course plan for the prolonged semester.
Extending your stay is, however, limited to your twelve-month Erasmus+ study cycle contingent (study and internship). You may not extend your stay from the summer semester of an academic year into the winter semester of the following academic year. If you would like to take part in a stay abroad in the subsequent winter semester, you will need to re-apply for the Erasmus+ program. Your stay will then be counted as a completely new one.
You can combine your studies with an internship during your stay abroad. Your internship will need to be supervised by the same host university where you study abroad. The total period of your study and internship abroad can be up to 12 months between 1 July and 30 September of the following year.
Please click here to download Extension Request Form. After you fill it out and get signatures from your Departmental Coordinator and Head of the Department you need to send it to Erasmus+ and Exchange Office via e-mail.
