The student fills out the application form in which they name their top partner university choices and add their portfolio and motivation letter.
The student must confirm their continual interest in exchange studies and if willing to apply to the given partner universities.
After the nomination, the student can start applying to the partner universities according to each university’s conditions.
Upon admission, the student has to inform the International Office about it and confirm their place at the partner university.
After the student has confirmed their place at the partner university, the EKA International Office will provide the student with necessary information to qualify for the Erasmus + program and receive the allocated scholarship. This means meeting the following requirements:
The student completes the OLS (Online Linguistic Support) language test, which can be accessed via a link sent by the International Office upon acceptance.
If possible, the student fills in the Online Learning Agreement (OLA), which confirms the subjects to be taken at the host university during exchange studies. The invitation for filling the agreement will be issued by the International Office.
The student needs to fill in the Mobility Form on EKA’s website, which allows the International Office to compose their grant agreements. The link will be given to the student via email.
Once the grant agreements are signed and student has done the OLS language test, the scholarship is due to be paid to the student’s bank account.
While on exchange studies, students need to keep in order their Online Learning Agreements (OLA):
After the end of their physical mobility, students are liable for completing their Erasmus+ mobility at the International Office as well. This has to be done within a month from the end date of their mobility and whereas successful completion is a premise for the final payment of Erasmus+ scholarship.
After the end of exchange studies, a student needs to present the EKA International Office the following documents:
In addition each student needs to submit the Erasmus+ participant survey. The email invitation will be sent directly by the EU system after a student’s exchange period has ended.
Each student is obliged to transfer their exchange results to EKA (except recent graduate participants).
For this the student needs to fill in a recognition form (find HERE; eesti keeles SIIN) and send it to your head of the speciality department for further processing (comments and signature). It might be that he/she wants to meet you in person for further explanation and(/or to see in person the work you did while on mobility.
Once you receive the signed form, please fill in the RPL (eesti keeles VÕTA) in Tahvel (under “Studies”). In the RPL you need to attach your mobility certificates (seek the exact certificates below) and signed recognition form.
Students, who have met all the conditions listed above and transferred min. 15 credits/semester to EKA, will get nominal study time extension according to the semesters spent abroad (1-2).
NB! Students who spend their last semester abroad and wish to have their nominal time extended, have to be especially careful not to be late with their credit point transfer application. You will find the deadlines from the academc calendar:
In case of interest in doing traineeship in the EU while studying in EKA, a student does not have to apply for a scholarship at the moment and instead can count on the Erasmus+ scholarship if their study results in EKA are under control. This means a student is free to look for a host institution on their own and once it has been found the International Office must be informed.
