What is a Learning Agreement, Study/Research Plan, Research/Teaching/Training Plan and how do I get it?
A Learning Agreement, Study/Research Plan, Research/Teaching/Training Plan is a study plan that details what subjects/courses/fields of research you intend to cover during your mobility and thus provides information on what you want to achieve during your stay abroad. It has to be agreed on with the relevant person in charge at your home university. The Learning Agreement, Study/Research Plan, Research/Teaching/Training Plan should be signed by the student/staff and the people in charge at your home and host institution.
Once you have received an official nomination that you have been accepted to participate in the mobility scheme, you will have to apply for a visa in your home country by contacting the Consulate of your chosen host country.
All documents have to be accompanied by a translation to English or the language of instruction at the host university. You can translate the documents yourself. The Evaluation Committee will compare the original document and the translation in order to verify that it has been properly translated. If you are selected and granted a scholarship, then you will have to provide an official translation to English or the language of instruction at the host university this time done by a sworn translator.
We have created different templates that you can use for your application. These are the following:
Undergraduate and MA applicants: If you are applying for a credit transfer programme you will have to provide a Learning Agreement, which should be signed by the person responsible of the program you are applying to at the host university and also, by your academic coordinator at your home university.
Who should sign what?
If you still have not received an answer from the person you contacted for at the host university for a “pre-admission letter” or “learning agreement”, make sure that you sent the email to the right person. Also make sure, that you sent enough information about your person: In order to be admitted in the program you would like to study, the corresponding school and/or department has to verify that you are a suitable candidate. Therefore, do not forget to attach your academic data (transcript of records and other relevant degrees) and your curriculum vitae on that email to the program coordinator/contact person. In case you sent the email to the right person with enough information, we recommend you to try to find out the telephone number of that person (in the directory of the university) in order to get in contact with him/her.
If you have tried to contact that person by all means (email and telephone) and you have not received an answer before the closing of the call, upload all required documents (if you still have not done so) even if you do not have the signature of the corresponding person. As probe of the effort you have made to get your Learning Agreement signed or your Preadmission Letter, you could also upload a copy of the email/s sent to the program coordinator/contact person requesting such documents. In any case, and once you have uploaded all required documents, don't forget to CLOSE your application.
You have to provide a language certificate only if the language of instruction at the host university is different from your mother tongue. If this is the case, this document has to be issued by an official language school, university or equivalent and state the level of proficiency you hold in that language.
"I, (your name) hereby confirm that (your mother tongue) is my mother tongue”
