2015-2016 Academic Year Erasmus Grant Allocation

updated at: published at:

2015-2016 Academic Year Erasmus Study and Placement budget has been announced by the Turkish National Agency. Grant allocation criteria for 2015-2016 Academic Year has been determined by Istanbul Bilgi University Erasmus Commission on September 17th , 2015 and is explained here below. 

We kindly request from you to read all the explanations.


Grant will be allocated to students who will participate the Erasmus Program for 2015-2016 Academic Year according to “Duration of Mobility/ Total number of days” basing on their Erasmus Grade ranking. Here student numbers, anticipated grant amounts and duration of mobilities of our students who will receive grant are listed.  The colorful highlighted ones are the students who will receive grant. 


As we have informed you before during the interviews, due to our limited budget only first semester grant will be paid to students who will participate the program for full year.


The National Agency only announce the grant budget. After that agreement between our university and the National Agency will be signed. After the completion of the agreement period grants will be transferred to universities within 45 days. As soon as we receive the grant from the National Agency, we will transfer the grants to our student. We will inform our students again for the first payments.


Firstly 70% of your total anticipated grants will be paid. At the end of your mobility rest of your grant will be paid if you complete your documents and achieve the required academic success.


The grants are calculated basing on the anticipated number of days according the academic calendar of the partner universities. The listed grants are the anticipated total amounts therefore after your mobility your final total grant (total number of days) will be re-calculated according to the passport copies and certificate of participation which you will submit to our office at the end of your mobility and your payment will be done accordingly.


For the students who do not receive grant, we will apply for additional grant (in November-December) in scope of interim report period. Though it is not guaranteed, due to the additional grant and cancellation, students who do not receive grant at the first stage could be granted later.


Students who would like to cancel their mobilities after the announcement of grant allocation results should fill in and sign the cancellation letter and submit to our office no later than September 29th, 2015 at 17:00. Click here for the cancellation letter.


Students who participate the program for full year and would like to shorten their mobilities and cancel their spring semester should fill out and sign the cancellation letter and submit to our office no later than November 13th, 2015. Click here for the cancellation letter. 


Taking online language exam (OLS) is compulsory for all students who will participate the program. After the National Agency allocates the exams to universities, we will make announcement and send the links for the exams to your bilgiedu.net extension mail addresses. The exams should be completed before the deadline therefore please check your mails and follow our announcements. (The exam will first be sent to fall and full year students. We will inform the students who will attend the program for spring semester in the orientation we will organize.)
