What is Erasmus+ KA107 ICM?

Erasmus+ KA107 International Credit Mobility (ICM) is a worldwide activity under Key Action 1 (the mobility of individuals) and an academic mobility programme between universities like Erasmus+ KA103. These universities are located in the Programme countries (27[1] EU countries, Iceland, Norway, Lichtenstein, North Macedonia and Turkey) as well as Partner countries, which include the rest of the world outside the EU such as Western Balkans, Asia, the Russian Federation etc.

Erasmus+ KA107 ICM programme aims to extend the mobility countries that are not in the programme countries and offers students and/or staff of a Higher Education Institution to participate in an exchange programme at a Partner Country (except Traineeships) and vice versa. Participants can benefit from an Erasmus+ grant.

Roles and Responsibilities

Participating organisations involved in the mobility project take on the following roles and responsibilities:

• The applicant organisation (always the Programme Country HEI) submits an application to its NA on behalf of its partner(s). The applicant can also apply on behalf of a consortium of several partners from the same Programme Country.

• Once selected, the beneficiary organisation (always the Programme Country HEI) signs and manages the grant agreement, and reports at the end of the project. The beneficiary is financially responsible for the entirety of the grant.

• The sending organisation (from either a Programme or a Partner Country) is responsible for selecting the students and staff and sending them abroad. This includes preparation, monitoring and recognition activities.

• The receiving organisation (from either a Programme or a Partner Country) hosts the students and staff from abroad, providing support during their stay.

Students and staff apply directly to their institution. The selection criteria for participation in the mobility activities are defined by the HEIs involved in the project. Many of these procedures are flexible and institutions are welcome to find the arrangements which work best for their needs, for example, institutions may prefer to establish joint selection procedures.

What are the application criteria?

- Before any mobility activity can take place, PAU must sign an inter-institutional agreement with the partner institution involved in the project.

- Participants should be registered in formal education programmes at HEI.

- Students should supply the required General Grade Points (GPA).

- Participants should fulfil the language requirement; minimum of 60 out of 100 from the Erasmus language examination or equivalent to 60 from YDS, YÖKDİL, TOEFL, IELTS.
