Selection Process

  • All applications are reviewed by the Erasmus Office and are evaluated by the Erasmus Committee in accordance with the selection criteria.
  • Applications of certain merit that have not been selected for funding due to budget restrictions are inserted in a ranked reserve list. In case of cancellation of mobilities, the corresponding funding is awarded to applications from the reserve list accordingly.
  • All applicants are notified through email about the outcome of their application, approximately a month after the deadline for applications.
  • Successful applicants must follow the instructions sent by the Erasmus Office through email; failure to do so will result in the cancellation of the mobility.


Please read the section Before, During and After the Mobility for the procedure to be followed once an application for a mobility is approved.
