- Erasmus FAQ is the place where we gathered advices useful to every student going on foreign exchange. We divided the topics into three sections - before going on exchange, during exchange and after coming back home. If you feel something is missing simply add a comment or submit your own advice.
Student Application Form
This will be the first document you come up against, after getting into the Erasmus program and qualifying for the exchange. Your school must send it to your new university in order to report you for studying for the time of your stay. Each university has their own form, but it usually requires detailed information about your person (remember to include a valid e-mail address!), information about both your old and new school, your language skills, professional experience and sometimes a short description of your motives for going abroad. You also ought to add an I.D. sized picture and a Transcript of Records written in English (a document listing all your completed courses - to be acquired at your deanery). The acceptation of the Student Application Form is usually just a formality (we haven’t heard of anyone being rejected at this stage) and you should get an Acceptance Letter from your new school. Sometimes you have to inquire for it yourself, that’s why it’s good to know the e-mail address of your Erasmus Program Coordinator at your new school. Some schools require students to register on their internet site, you should find out in detail, what formalities ought to be completed.
