Main information

The Erasmus Programme is an initiative run by the European Union (EU). Since 2007 it was a part of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). In 2014 the EU launched a new framework programme called Erasmus+ that is meant to support international cooperation and activities within the fields of education, training, youth and sport.

The programme provides opportunities for students to study or gain work experience in a different European country while completing a degree. There are many benefits, including the chance to learn another European language, and to experience life within a different culture.

KTU has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education by the European Commission for the period 2014-2020 which is a pre-requisite for higher education institutions to participate in the Erasmus+ Programme.

Students studying any subject, both undergraduate and postgraduate, can apply to participate in the Erasmus+ Programme for studies.

Erasmus Policy Statement.

Financial support

Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad. The amounts of the grant are defined by the National Agency.

Group Programme countries Grant
I

Denmark, Ireland, France, Italy, Austria, Finland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Liechtenstein, Norway.

500 EUR/month
II

Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Spain, Croatia, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Iceland, Turkey.

400 EUR/month
III

Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Hungary, Malta, Romania, Macedonia, Slovakia.

300 EUR/month
 
IV Azerbaijan, Israel, Kazakhstan, Ukraine 650 EUR/month + travel grant

 

The final amount for the mobility period is determined by multiplying the number of months of the mobility with the rate applicable per month for the receiving country. In the case of incomplete months, the financial support is calculated by multiplying the number of days in the incomplete month with 1/30 of the unit cost per month

Erasmus+ students - whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ EU grant - are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution. The payment of any national grant or loan to outgoing students is maintained during the study period abroad.

Students with a zero-grant from EU funds are mobile participants that do not receive an EU grant related to travel and subsistence, but they otherwise fulfil all student mobility criteria and benefit from all advantages of being Erasmus+ student. They may receive a regional, national or other type of grant to contribute to their mobility costs.

Students with special needs can request additional grant support. A person with special needs is a potential participant whose individual physical, mental or health-related situation is such that his/her participation in the mobility would not be possible without extra financial support. Higher education institutions that have selected students with special needs can cover the supplementary costs for their participation in the mobility activities. For persons with special needs, the grant support may therefore be higher than the maximum individual grant amounts set out. As regards the accompanying persons for students with special needs, they are entitled to receive a contribution based on real costs.

Implementation of mobility

Students who want to participate
First, you have to choose a partner university abroad. The choice of the receiving institution must be based on the compatibility of the study plan with the field of study attended at the home university. The language of instruction at the host university must be also taken into consideration.
In your application form at least three universities must be indicated by priority due to the limited number of places at the receiving institutions and possible difficulties in finding suitable modules.

In order to participate in the programme, students have to

  • Register online. The registration link is given when the call for selection is open.
  • Have a current Transcript of Records (to be ordered at the faculty and attached to the registration form). For Masters and PhD students – graduation diploma, its supplements and current Transcript of Records.
  • Carry out a language test at the Department of Modern Languages and Intercultural Communication (certificate to be attached to the registration form).
  • Take part in the selection at their faculties. It is mandatory to attend the interview.

 

After selection

Students who have been selected for Erasmus+ studies for autumn semester 2015, academic year 2015-2016 and spring semester 2016 (application procedures for this semester at the receiving institutions start in September 2015), must:

  • Apply for studies at universities abroad. Information regarding application procedures and documents of the receiving institutions can be found on their websites. Pay attention to the application deadlines depending on the university.
  • Check what documents they have to submit at the receiving universities. In most cases, they are Learning Agreement, Transcript of Records, Language Proficiency Certificate, other documents required by the host universities (copy of a passport, motivation letter, etc.). Some universities have online application systems; others require original documents to be send via airmail or scanned via email. Documents for sending must be submitted at the Academic Exchange and Networks Office (AENO), room 105, KTU Central Building, K. Donelaičio St. 73.
  • Fill in and sign Learning Agreement. Discuss your study plan with your study programme coordinator and faculty’s international coordinator. The Learning Agreement has to be approved and signed by the international coordinator. Later, it has to be signed by the coordinator of the host university.
  • Bring Letter of Acceptance/Invitation from the host university to AENO immediately after they have received it. The start and end dates of the mobility must be indicated in the Acceptance Letter; or a relevant academic calendar must be submitted.
  • Sign Financial Agreement. The amount of the Erasmus+ grant awarded will depend on the country of destination and the number of mobility periods and months/days applied for.

 

The final amount for the mobility period shall be determined by multiplying the number of months/days of the mobility with the rate applicable per month/day for the receiving country concerned. In the case of incomplete months, the financial support is calculated by multiplying the number of days in the incomplete month with 1/30 of the unit cost per month.

  • Fill in the Application to Leave, collect the signatures at the faculty and bring it to the AENO.
  • Buy health insurance valid for the period of their stay in the host country.
  • VISA and TRP: students need to have a valid TRP/VISA in Lithuania even if they will be abroad for next semester. All countries have different requirements for incoming students. The host university usually provides their incoming student with the information about the requirements in their country. It could be found in their information packages sent to incoming students. 

 

While being abroad

  • Finish learning agreement, get all the signatures, send the copy to KTU Department for Internationalisation. Changes in the learning agreement can be made during the first month of the mobility period and they have to be signed by abroad university and faculty's international coordinator.
  • Students who have a licence to language course have to attend online courses starting with the beginning of the mobility period and ending with the final language test.

 

After coming back

After coming back from foreign country student has to bring all the required documents to Department for Internationalisation and faculty's international coordinator.

For more information:

About Erasmus+ programme: http://ec.europa.eu/education/opportunities/higher-education/study-mobility_en.htm
About Erasmus+ traineeship: http://ec.europa.eu/education/opportunities/higher-education/traineeships_en.htm

 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

All Lithuanian and international students (both EU nationals and non-EU nationals) registered and enrolled in a full-time and part time or individual study programmes at KTU leading to a recognized degree or other recognized tertiary level qualification, such as a Bachelor, a Master or a Doctorate. Recent graduates may also participate in this traineeship.

All the possible candidates for this traineeship need to meet the following requirements:

  • shall not have any academic fails;
  • the proposed traineeship plan shall be compatible with the requirements of your study programme.

Important! Students who are on study leave cannot go abroad for Erasmus+ traineeships.

Students with special needs

People with special needs are also able to perform all of the actions related to Erasmus+. The programme aims at promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating the access to learners with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers including people with mental, physical, sensory or other disabilities.

Every student whose individual physical, mental or health-related situation is such that his/her participation in Erasmus+ traineeship would not be possible without extra financial support is treated as a student with special needs. For such students Erasmus+ programme provides extra funding. Every case for extra financial support is examined individually, according to the presented documents.

As soon as you get the results, please contact the international coordinator Rūta Jankauskienė for a more detailed information, by coming directly at Department for Internationalisation (K. Donelaičio g. 73, room 105) or via e-mail (ruta.jankauskiene@ktu.lt).

WHEN CAN ERASMUS+ TRAINEESHIP TAKE PLACE?

This traineeship can be performed during your first, second and third cycle of studies and within a maximum of 12 months after your graduation (recent graduates’ traineeships).

Students can go for Erasmus+ traineeships during the academic year (traineeships that are as an integral part of the curriculum) and summer time (voluntary traineeships).

DURATION OF THE TRAINEESHIP

A traineeship can last from 2 months (minimum 60 days) up to 12 months. It is counted for all types of Erasmus+ mobility: study mobility, traineeship mobility and traineeship mobility after graduation, therefore enables students to train abroad more than once. Every case should be individually discussed with your faculty coordinator.

Prior experience under the Erasmus-Lifelong Learning programme counts towards the 12 months per study cycle.

If you have already reached the limit, you will be able to apply for further traineeships abroad once you undertake a degree in the next study cycle.

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 divided between studies and traineeship.

WHERE TO GO?

Receiving organizations for traineeships may be any public or private organizations active in the labor market. For example, such organization can be:

  • 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 center (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 the courses, as that would be considered a study period and not a traineeship.

Non-eligible Types of Organizations:

  • EU institutions and other EU bodies including specialized agencies which are listed on the following website: ec.europa.eu/institutions/index_en.htm;
  • organizations managing EU programmers, such as National Agencies.

HOW TO FIND A PLACE?

Prepare your Curriculum Vitae (following Europass CV (more information) guidelines), choose a place for your traineeship, prepare a motivation letter and contact a representative of the organization. If you need some help in preparing the mentioned documents, please contact KTU Career Centre (Dormitory No 2, Studentų g. 67, corpus A, Room 205).

You have a possibility to search for places for the traineeship independently (companies, organizations) and choose the ones in which you are interested (and which would comply with your study programme).

Important:

  • Please keep in mind that if you stick to only one country or even to one company, when looking for a traineeship place, then your chances of success are very limited.
  • In case you contact intermediary companies who may help you in finding a place, please take into consideration that not all intermediaries can provide you with the qualitative traineeship places.

RECOGNITION

  • For a traineeship which is an integral part of the curriculum, upon satisfactory completion of the traineeship, student is awarded ECTS credits and given a grade. Additionally, the information about the implementation of the traineeship is included in the student’s Diploma Supplement. Recognition shall be based on the Learning Agreement approved by all parties before the period of mobility starts. During this traineeship you might earn up to 18 ECTS credits (40 hours per week = 1.5 ECTS), in case you successfully reach your traineeship goals.
  • For a traineeship that is not part of the curriculum of the student, upon satisfactory completion of it, the information about implementation of the traineeship is included in the trainee’s Diploma Supplement, unless the trainee is a recent graduate. For the recent graduates, a Europass mobility document might be issued by the Academic Mobility and Networks Office (AENO).

 

The traineeship cannot be recognized only if the traineeship manager at the hosting organization evaluates student’s traineeship negatively or the student does not fulfill the requirements presented above.

The Erasmus+ grant is intended as a contribution to partly cover travel, insurance, living and other expenses.

The payment of any national grant or loan to outgoing students has to be maintained, and students have to pay usual tuition fees to KTU during the Erasmus+ traineeship abroad. Any allowance or remuneration that the receiving organization may grant you, including contributions in kind, such as meals or accommodation, is compatible with the Erasmus+ grant. A mobility period is compatible with a part-time job. Furthermore, the Erasmus+ grant is compatible with the revenue that the student receives as long as he or she carries out the activities foreseen in the agreed mobility programme.

The same student may receive grants for Erasmus+ mobility (studies or traineeship) totaling up to 12 months maximum per one study cycle.

The amount of a grant you will receive depends on the Erasmus+ host country. Programme countries are divided into three groups according to the living standards. Minimum and maximum grant levels are determined by the National Agency for one academic year, while exact rates are approved by KTU rector’s order (see example of grant amounts for 2014/2015 academic year bellow):

A pre-financing payment of 90% shall be made to the participant not later than (whichever comes first):

  • 30 calendar days after the signature of the agreement by both parties;
  • the start date of the mobility period.

In case the participant did not provide the supporting documents in time, according to the sending institution’s timeline, a later payment of the pre-financing can be exceptionally accepted.

The remaining 10% of the scholarship is paid after the submission of all of the required documents upon the end of the traineeship (language knowledge assessment, online EU survey and Confirmation of the hosting organization). The institution shall have 45 calendar days to make the balance payment or to issue a recovery order in case a reimbursement is due.

Important. Any grant can be transferred to the student’s account only after the university receives funding from the National Agency.

Zero Grant Recipients

Due to shortage of funding, the Erasmus+ programme allows the student to undertake traineeship mobility in the Erasmus+ scheme known as a “zero-grant student”. In such case, an Erasmus+ grant is not allocated to the student, but the student benefits from all advantages of being an Erasmus+ student during his/her traineeship period abroad. Such student shall follow all responsibilities of the Erasmus+ student (Erasmus+ Student Charter).

Implementation of mobility

In case you have not reached the 12-month limit mentioned above, your 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.

Students who wish to extend their traineeship period at least one month before the foreseen end date of the initial traineeship period must agree on the extension with their hosting organization, Faculty and Department for Internationalisation.
