What is Mobility Exchange (For Students / Staff)

An exchange student/staff is registered/employed at a university (home university) and temporarily studies/researches at a partner university (host university). The exchange period for students lasts from 1 semester to max. 10 months. The exchange period for staff members is 1 month. Students do not obtain a diploma from the host institution. However, all academic results will be sent to the students' home university and will be recognized by using the two forms of academic recognition:

  • Learning Agreement (developed following acceptance of scholarship)
  • Transcript of Records (issued after completion of exchange period)

Possible types of mobility for exchange students:

  • Undergraduate: 1 semester or 1 academic year (maximum of 10 months)
  • Master: 1 semester or 1 academic year (maximum of 10 months)
  • Doctorate: 6 months – 20 months
  • Post-doctorate: 6 - 10 months
  • Staff: 1 month 

What is Degee-Seeking (For Students only)

Degree students will obtain a diploma from the host university in the EU or Candidate country. Students applying as degree students need to comply with the Host University entry requirements. The admission criteria are detailed under each course description at the point of application.

Degree-Seeking scholarships are less readily available under the EU-METALIC programme. The EU-METALIC consortium provides scholarships for a maximum duration of 36 months under this category.

Possible types of mobility for degree students include:

  • Undergraduate: Up to 36 months (Target group 3 only)
  • Master: 12 months up to 24 months (depending on the duration of the master programme at the Host University)
  • Doctorate: up to 36 months (considering the eligibility period of the project) ​
