For exchange students (not full degree)
If you have been nominated for an exchange period abroad you need to start to prepare a learning agreement already now. A learning agreement facilitates the recognition of your studies abroad and has to be set up between you, the hosting university and the home university. The learning agreement states what courses you are going to study, and how many credits you are going to earn. By signing this agreement your home university agrees to transfer the credits studied abroad to your degree at home. The learning agreement shall be signed and stamped by all parties before the mobility period starts. If there are any changes to the learning agreement afterwards, these must be communicated with your home university so they can accept the changes made. The changes shall be stated in the document ”changes to learning agreement” and must be signed by all parties. A learning agreement shall be issued to students on undergraduate, master, and PhD level. You can find an example of a learning agreement and a changes to learning agreement at the end of this page.

All researchers and staff need to set up a work plan. A work plan is an agreement between the scholarship holder and the hosting university, and it aims at clarifying what kind of tasks you will perform during the mobility, period for example what kind of research you are going to do, how many lectures shall be taught, administrative work etc. The work plan shall be signed and stamped by all parties before the mobility period starts.You can find an example of a work plan at the end of this page.
