We did open an application before on 22.12.2022 – 23.01.2023 for the same project and the reason why we are opening an extra one is that the coordinator university (Altınbaş University) declared that we can send 2 more students for the same project. **

The use of this new system by all universities in Turkey has been made mandatory for us by our institution called the Turkish National Agency, which carries out Erasmus+ Traineeship mobility in Turkey on behalf of our country. **

**You should be aware that the Application Portal (Başvuru Portalı) is new and constantly updated. We try to support as much as we can about the problems experienced or to be experienced, but since the system is new, we are in the process of getting used to it as the office.

ABOUT CONSORTIUM:

 

Altınbaş University is the coordinating institution in the Erasmus+ Internship Consortium under the name of Internship4all, and 6 Universities (Bahçeşehir University, Biruni University, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Foundation University, Işık University and Maltepe University), 1 Company (KION Bilgisayar Bilişim Yazılım San. Ve Tic. Ltd. Şti) 2 Non-Governmental Organizations (Community Volunteers Foundation, Turkish Exporters Assembly) are involved as partners.

In previous years, an Erasmus+ application was made with 6 universities within the scope of the consortium and within the scope of this project, our consortium project was entitled to receive a grant.

Erasmus+ Traineeship Mobility is carried out by Bahçeşehir University, and in addition to this mobility we do/will do ourselves, we also offer an internship opportunity within the consortium we are a member of in order to offer a different option to our students.

 

OBJECTIVES OF CONSORTIUM:

 

Within the scope of the common objectives of Vision 2023 and Europe 2020, the ultimate goal of the Mobility Consortium is to increase the employment rate of the skilled workforce and contribute to the development of a cooperative culture and cooperation between universities and industry (external stakeholders), which will bring great positive impact to the modernization of higher education.

Within this context, the Mobility Consortium aims to increase the quality of mobility activities through all Consortium member institutions’ expertise and experience.

Provide extensive support to help students build and develop effective communication, entrepreneurial and career management skills, easily adapt to international and multicultural business environments, be proactive and take initiative to plan for their careers.

Produce employable graduates that fulfil industry requirements and expectations,

Establish and develop permanent cooperative relations with organizations/businesses through training/internship activities.

Improve communication between universities and industry, which is their most important external stakeholder.

Through mobilities for placement, render the relations established between students and industry permanent to update and revise the curriculum and/or develop a new curriculum based on regular feedback from employers/students.

Provide equal employment opportunities by implementing support processes for economically disadvantaged students and students with disabilities, and by taking measures to eliminate obstacles that prevent them from participating in mobility activities.

Students who want to take advantage of Erasmus+ Traineeship mobility should have information about the full-time internship working hours of the countries they aim to go to. They should adjust themselves according to these working hours and then they have to specify it correctly in the working hours’ section when making a learning agreement.

 

NOTE: Full-time internship working hours for each country may differ. This issue should be discussed in detail with the place where the acceptance letter will be taken.

**IMPORTANT: You will not do the LEARNING AGREEMENT in the application period.**

 

It is the student’s responsibility to provide accommodation in the country where the internship is planned. The company/institution that the student has agreed for the internship can help the student.

 

Traineeship places are not obliged to give salary to the Erasmus+ participants but this does not mean that you cannot find a place where they give you salary for the time you work there.

 

The company/institution in the acceptance letter uploaded to the system at the time of application cannot be changed later. Company change may be due to reasons beyond the student’s control. Although the participant needs a force majeure, to make the change it must be approved by the BAU Exchange office.

 

The student’s mobility dates, position and what she/he will do during the internship must be clearly stated in the acceptance letter. It should be prepared in a signed and stamped form written on the company’s letterhead.

Erasmus+ Traineeship can be done in summertime, too and it will be more suitable for students since if a student wants to join to the program in a semester, the student cannot select and attend to any class in that semester in BAU because the student will be an Erasmus+ participant but the choice for when you plan to go is up to you.

 

Students who want to do internship after graduation must have applied and been accepted during the application period while they were students, before they graduated. Although they have the right to make mobility within 12 months after graduation, they cannot go beyond this period.

If any student has participated in Erasmus+ mobility activities during their normal education period, they cannot participate in a mobility activity for more than 12 months (For example, if the student has already participated in an Erasmus+ learning mobility) If the student has participated in an Erasmus+ learning mobility for less than 9 months, the student mobility application, which is expected to take 4 and a half months, will not be approved.

 

Graduate students who did not have a CGPA in the program they were enrolled in at the time of application can apply with their previous undergraduate graduation CGPA, provided that they present a document.

 

Double major students can only use one of the majors to apply for Erasmus+ mobility during the application period.
