  ELIGIBLE COUNTRIES

For the period 2017-2019, OUC has secured funding for staff mobility to and from partner universities in the following countries: Australia, Georgia, Iran, Lebanon, Jordan, Ukraine, South Africa, Palestine, Serbia (as of 2019 Serbia is not considered International Mobility), Tunisia and Russia.

 

  PARTICIPATION PROCEDURES

The signing of an Erasmus+ Inter-institutional Agreement between the two HEIs (hone and host) is a prerequisite for the mobility of students and staff (academic and administrative) from and to partner countries, aiming to establish that both parties agree to fulfil the conditions set out in the Erasmus+ University Charter.

In the case of student mobility, HEIs participating in the Erasmus+ International Mobility must recognise the credits (ECTS or other) students have earned during their study period abroad.
