Haliç University Erasmus+
Today, Turkey is in the process of integrating into the European Union. It can only be possible by expanding overseas and seizing the contemporary developments by means of a new and modern educational campaign. The education system adopted by Haliç University towards this target aims to develop the analytical and synthesis capabilities of the students. This is the only way to provide a solution to most of the interdisciplinary and complicated problems of our age. We believe that finding the right solutions and taking reasonable decisions under unstable conditions can only be achieved by means of education programs prepared according to the changing conditions of science, technology, and communication and information management.
Haliç University Erasmus Office was established in 2009, with the aim of an international exchange vision.

Outgoing Student Experiences
I went to the University of South Bohemia in Czech Republic for Erasmus between February and June months of 2022. These 5 months in České Budějovice have been an excellent experience for me. It both contributed a lot to the development of my English and allowed me to get to know new and different cultures. I went to different Europe countries during the Erasmus period. Netherlands, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Belgium... It was a very nice feeling that every country has different cultures and getting to know different people. I stayed in the dormitory of the university I went to. I met many Turks in the dormitory and now we have a very good friendship. In addition to this, I have many foreign friends from different nationalities. And we all became a group of 15-20 people and we visited all the countries we went to together! 16 people went to Vienna, we rent a villa and stayed together! It wasn't even a problem that we were all from different cultures. And imagine that you go on hiking on a mountain during your Erasmus! We walked 32 kilometers that day and it was perfect! Erasmus was a wonderful experience that gave me great friendships and unforgettable memories. I would like everyone to go to Erasmus at least once in their life.Pınar Gülatar
Üçüncü sınıf güz dönemi erasmus hareketliliği için İtalya Frosinone’ de bulunan Academia di Bella Arti di Frosinone’ e gittim. Hareketlilik sırasında Türkiye’de Mimarlık okuyordum, orada da güzel sanatlar eğitimi aldım. Çoğunluğu atölye derslerinden oluşan bir programım vardı ayrıca temelde mimarlığa benzemesi yönüyle sahne tasarımı (scenografia) içerikli derslerim ağırlıktaydı. Büro stajımı Frosinone’e yarım saat yakınlıktaki Colleferro da bir mimari studio da yapma fırsatı yakaladım. Benim için harika bir deneyimdi.Akademinin tarihi Pietro Tiravanti binası ve okulun çevresindeki kültürle yaşamak kesinlikle çok keyifliydi. Roma’ya iki saat uzaklıktaki şehir sivil mimari yönünden de oldukça gelişmiş. Belki akdeniz kültürünün bize olan yakınlığından belki de beynime kodlanmış başka bir bilgiden ilk gittiğim günden beri kendimi oraya ait ve huzurlu hissettim. Tabiki bunda sıcak kanlı İtalyanların payının da olduğunu düşünüyorum. Erasmus + aracılığıyla farklı ülkelerden gelen öğrencilerle tanıştım. İtalyan kültürü ile birlikte diğer ülkelerin insanlarını tanımak bana yeni bakış açıları kazandırdı. Tüm bunların yanında hayatla ilgili birçok şey öğrendim. Başta gergin hissettiren bu süreç daha sonra bana sorumluluklarımı ve kendi başımın çaresine bakmam gerektiğini hatırlattı. Hayatıma giren dostlukların ve bilgilerin değerini ifade etmem çok zor. Beni fazlasıyla eğlendiren ve bir çok şey öğreten , geri dönmek istemeyeceğim harika bir deneyimdi. Mutlaka ilerde İtalya'ya geri dönmek istiyorum, bu güzel deneyim için herkese teşekkür ederim.Birce Uzun
Hello! My name is Simge and I am a senior student in American Culture and Literature Department at Haliç University. Last semester, I participated in the Erasmus+ program and received training in Lodz, Poland. Lodz is a quiet and small city. I also visited other cities in Poland when I had the opportunity and totally, and I experienced visiting 8 countries and 17 cities. Although this 5-month period I lived in seemed like a short period, it provided me with pretty life experiences. My self-confidence increased and realizing that I could really achieve something on my own made my future goals stronger. Throughout this period, my life came across new people from different countries and different cities, I included new cultures and languages into my life and all of them remained as good memories for me. I spent a lot of time with "I glad"s not with "What If" or "I wish"es and it still does. Participating in the Erasmus+ program is one of the best experiences I have ever had and will never forget. I thank my family who always stands by me, thanks to my friends who are always there for me, and thanks to my school for giving me a chance to live this experience.Simge Dosti
Merhaba ben Berkay, Haliç üniversitesi üçüncü sınıf Besyo öğrencisiyim ve ilk dönemimi Erasmus yaparak polonya’da geçirdim. 5 Ay boyunca Polonya Rzeszow da eğitim gördüm ve bana kattığı şeyleri sizinle paylaşmak istiyorum.

Gittiğim okulda ise çok sıcak karşılandım ve her konuda yardımcı oldular ve bunun yanında dilim çok gelişti gerçekten dil geliştirmek isteyenler için kaçırmayın derim.Berkay Doğruer
Thanks to Erasmus in Italy, I got to know a new culture and learned about the beauties of the city of Naples. I developed my gastronomic knowledge with Italian cuisine, and I had the opportunity to taste different Italian dishes in Naples, the birthplace of pizza. Thanks to the school and Erasmus groups, I met new people and made new friends, and had the opportunity to travel to other countries and cities with them. I learned a new language thanks to the Italian lessons of the school and my Italian friends. I experienced living alone in a different country.Yağmur Kandemir
Frequently Asked Question
Erasmus+ is the EU's new umbrella programme for education, training, youth and sport, designed to be more global and more integrated than ever before. It brings together seven EU programmes and offers more opportunities for cooperation than its predecessors.
Undergraduate and graduate full-time students of Haliç University can be eligible to benefit from Erasmus Study / Internship Mobility. Undergraduate students must have a minimum grade of 2.20/4.00 cumulative GPA and graduate students a minimum grade of 2.50/4.00 cumulative GPA.
Initially, you may check the application dates (Fall – Spring) and you need to fill the online application form and send it along with your transcript records through our website once the applications start.
Once you have won the Erasmus+ Study Mobility, you need to select a university among your preferences and send it to the Erasmus Office via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) between the dates indicated. In this way, your mobility process will be initiated.
Once you have won the Erasmus+ Internship Mobility, you must inform the Erasmus Office via e-mail (email@example.com) 3 months before starting the internship. In this way, your mobility process will be initiated.
Once you see “Primary Acceptance” in the results list, it means that you have won the right for Erasmus+ Study/Internship Mobility. Once you see “Secondary Acceptance” in the results list, it means that for the time being you have not actually been accepted and need to wait for renunciation from a Primary Acceptance student and if one of them renounce, you may get the chance for the mobility program.
The Erasmus+ programme offers a wide range of opportunities for students and staff to study and train abroad. The programme funds intra-EU and international credit mobility for students to study in a receiving institution for a period of 3-12 months and obtain credits which are then recognized by the sending institution. Students can also do a traineeship abroad for a period of 2 to 12 months.
Programme Countries are those countries participating fully in the Erasmus+ programme. To do so, they set up a National Agency and contribute financially to the programme. The 33 Programme Countries are: the 28 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey.
Starting from the 2015/2016 academic year, it will be possible to study in institutions based in Programme and Partner Countries (see question 5), as long as these institutions have signed an "inter-institutional agreement" with your home institution. To find out exactly where you can study/train, please contact the International Office of your higher education institution.
For traineeships, the receiving organization can be any private or public organization active in the labor market or in the fields of education, training and youth. Some examples are: a public or private, small, medium or large enterprise (including social enterprises); a public body at local, regional or national level; a social partner or other representative of the working life, including chambers of commerce, craft/professional associations and trade unions; a research institute; a foundation; a school/institute/educational Centre (at any level, from pre-school to upper secondary education, and including vocational education and adult education); a non-profit organization, association, NGO; a body providing career guidance, professional counselling and information services; It is also possible to carry out a traineeship in a higher education institution located in one of the Programme Countries. However, the programme of the traineeship cannot consist of following courses, as that would be considered a study period and not a traineeship.
Students and doctoral candidates are able to study abroad for a period of 3 months (or one academic term or trimester), and up to a maximum of 12 months per study cycle. The duration of a traineeship period is of a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months. In case of a combined study and traineeship, the minimum duration is 3 months, and the maximum duration is 12 months, no matter how the time is shared between studies and traineeship.
Erasmus+ enables students to study or train abroad more than once as Erasmus students as long as the minimum duration for each activity and a total maximum of 12 months per study cycle is respected.
You can request an extension of the duration of your period abroad at the latest one month before the foreseen end date upon which you had agreed in your Learning Agreement. Please bear in mind that the total duration of the period abroad, including previous participation in the Erasmus-Lifelong Learning programme, cannot exceed 12 months per study cycle (except for one-cycle study programmes, such as Medicine, where the maximum is 24 months for the entire study programme). This limit includes any time spent abroad, even if you did not receive a grant from EU funds. Provided that you have not reached the 12-month limit mentioned above, you’re sending and receiving institutions may agree to extend the duration of your period abroad. If you have received a grant from EU funds, your institution may propose that the extension of your period abroad be considered a “zero-grant” period, if the entire available budget has already been allocated. Alternatively, it may agree to modify your grant agreement so that it covers the extended duration of your period abroad. In any case, you will need to modify the Learning Agreement and receive an e-mail confirming these changes both from your sending and receiving institution.
