ERASMUS+ IN IAU

Erasmus+ aims to improve the quality of higher education and strengthen its European dimension. It does this by encouraging transnational cooperation between universities, fostering the European mobility of students and teachers, and contributing to improved transparency and academic recognition of qualifications and studies throughout the European Union.

How does it work?

Higher education institutions apply for the Erasmus+ University Charter (EUC) to the European Commission. The awarding of an EUC gives the institution the right to participate in activities supported by the Erasmus+ programme. Once an institution receives a Charter, it can apply for funding for activities such as Student Mobility and Curriculum Development projects.

To apply to IAU for Erasmus+ Exchange Program your university needs to have a current Bilateral Agreement with Istanbul Aydin University and you need to be nominated to study at IAU. Yo can find here the list with our partner universities.
