ЕвроАзиатское Сотрудничество для Совершенствования и
Продвижения будет стимулировать интернационализацию
образования, поддерживать мобильность студентов и
профессорско-преподавательского состава, способствовать
развитию научных исследований, внутри- и
межуниверситетской кооперации, а также культурному
взаимопониманию. Мультидисциплинарный консорциум
состоит из партнеров и фокусирует внимание на студентов
ВУЗовского и после-ВУЗовского образования и профессорскопреподавательский состав, которые получат огромную пользу
от специального обучения, научных исследований и условий
преподавания, недоступных в отдельно взятом ВУЗе. Проект
даст возможность участникам лучше понимать друг друга в
интеллектуальном плане, улучшить привлекательность и
способствовать развитию Европейского высшего образования в
странах Центральной Азии и установить устойчивую сеть
мобильности студентов и ППС между странами Европейского
10
Союза и Центральной Азии.

• Exchange mobility
• Full degree mobility
15
Exchange or degree?
•
•
An exchange student is a student (officially registered in a university or other
institution for higher education) who temporarily lives in a foreign country and
attends courses or is involved in other academic activities. The exchange period lasts
minimum 1 semester (minimum 30 ECTS, if less than 12 ECTS the mobility will be
stopped) and maximum 1 academic year (minimum 60 ECTS, if less than 12 ECTS the
mobility will be stopped). The exchange student does NOT get a diploma from the
host university. However, all academic results will be sent to his/her home university.
The student pays tuition fee at his home university, not at the host university.
Exchange students need the approval of their home and host university: at the time of
the mobility they need to present a learning agreement signed by both universities,
which is a guarantee for academic recognition of those courses afterwards. Exchange
applicants should be aware that they have to be fully supported by their home
institution to carry out their mobility period abroad, as recognition of credits is an
integral part of this project. Post-doctoral and staff applicants are always considered
as exchange, as there is no degree involved in this mobility.
A degree student from Central Asia registers at the university in Europe and is no
longer a student from the university at home. He/she pays tuition fee at the host
university (covered by participation costs that grantee receives) and will obtain a
diploma from the university abroad. Students applying to a European university will
need to comply with the host university admission requirements.
16
Very important
• Know the reasons why you chose the
particular host university.
• Read/study the website of the project and
the website of the host universities to
which you are applying.
• Most of the candidates are very good.
Make your application special in
motivation letter.
