Dear Students,

Erasmus+ traineeship mobility is available for bachelor, graduate and recently graduated students* with or without grant provided that the recent graduates submitted their application before their graduation. Students could be trainee in the firms that are approved by our institution (Bachelor students are supposed to ask to their departmental traineeship commission for the approval of their traineeship position and graduate students are supposed to ask to their Erasmus+ program coordinators). This budget is available to support the mobility through to Program Countries. As traineeship activity is an obligatory part of the bachelor diploma in Turkey, bachelor students has the priority to get the grant comparing to graduate students.

Although the traineeship mobility is generally planned during summer term, we have scheduled the process to enable the students to plan their traineeship activity any time of a year. Each year, two successive ads are announced in late March/beginning of April. One of the calls is only available for summer period and another one gives the opportunity to any period in the year. Still, please consider the time limits of your faculty or institution.

The calendar for the dates of application and announcement of selected students is stated below. Please prepare and submit your application for the most appropriate call for you.

ATTENTION! Payments from 2020-2021 budget will be available earliest in September 2020. The agreement that would designate the budget has not been signed between ITU and Turkish National Agency yet. We suggest that you do not apply for the 2020-2021 budget, if you plan a mobility in the United Kingdom before September/ October 2020. The grant agreement number that is required by British Council to provide the sponsorship number may not be available by then, making it impossible for you to obtain a visa.

*The mobility has to be completed in the 12 months after the graduation.

Candidates can apply to both calls but please note that for each benefit at the same level of education from Erasmus mobility, your final score is to be reduced by 10 points. The main differences between the two calls are described below:

  1. In the second calls, unlike the first one, more grants may be distributed than the previously announced quota and additional placement is made for grants.
  2. While it is a prerequisite for the second call, Acceptance Letter is not a mandatory document in the first call, but it is to be evaluated as +10 points.


Objection Period

The period between the announcement of preliminary results and the final results is reserved for the objections of the applicants. Objections to the final list must be delivered to Erasmus Office (in person or through e-mail), until 12.00 pm on the previous working day of final announcement dates and should include the reason, the requested change and student information.
