Each academic year there is only 1 application deadline for 'Studies' (1st and 2nd semester) for Ghent University. Keep in mind that there are no scholarships awarded if you wish to extend your stay abroad. Incomplete or belated files will not be processed.

Each university has its own deadlines, admission requirements and regulations for the exact documentation which needs to be provided along with the application. Before you submit your application, please review the website of the host university.

For each cycle (Ba-Ma-PhD) a scholarship can be awarded:

  • STUDY (min. 90 days, max. 12 months)
  • TRAINEESHIP (min. 60 days)

The same student may receive grants for mobility periods totaling up to 12 months maximum per cycle of study (traineeship and studies).

Further procedure

  • Contact the departmental coordinator of your progamme (Faculty Commission Internationalisation - FCI) and/or your faculty contact Regine Coolen on time.
  • Submit your application on the Oasis website from December 2016 onwards.
  • Follow the application procedure of the host university, check the deadline!
  • Language tests: applicants whose native language is not English must document proficiency in English by having completed one of the recognised language tests and obtaining the minimum score or higher. Test results must be uploaded together with the online application.
  • Online Linguistic support. Before and after your stay abroad, you will receive an email invitation from the International Relations Office to do an online language test.
  • After your nomination you may receive the application procedure/link from the host university and extra information about practical arrangements. When you didn’t receive any information from the host university 4 weeks before your departure, please contact Regine Coolen.
  • At the end of your stay you will receive a "Transcript of Records" of your host university. This is a summary of your achievements during your Erasmus stay abroad. Deliver this document to the FCI member of your programme, preferably with a translation of the score calculation/grading evaluation.  

Traineeships

In addition to the well-known Erasmus+ Studies, you can also do the Erasmus ‘Traineeship' (internship) during your studies at a European university, company, training center, research center and organisation. An Erasmus Traineeship must be arranged in direct contact with a department or research group. This means that students are responsible for the initial contact to the relevant promotors, researcher or research group and for planning the Erasmus Traineeship.

Please note that Erasmus Traineeship students are not allowed to sign up for courses.

Deadline:

  • 1st semester 2018-2019: 15 February 2018
