Thank you for your interest in visiting Bandirma Onyedi Eylul University within Erasmus+ Exchange Programme.
For staff mobility, we do not require Inter-Institutional Erasmus Agreement to be in place; however teaching staffs from our partner universities will have priority.
As Office we prepare all the necessary documents such Invitation Letter and Confirmation Sheet, but for a more fruitful participation, especially academic staff members first need to contact departments which they would like to visit and discuss them on their work plan. For contact, please check the list of Departmental Coordinators. APPLICATION
The application about visiting within Erasmus+ is simple: as your working plan is approved by the department, we write you invitation letter. Please first contact the coordinator of the department you would like to visit or the responsible person for incoming staff in our Office and send your working plan. TEACHING ASSIGNMENT / WORK PROGRAMME
The Erasmus Office of your home university will probably inform you about filling a teaching assignment or a work programme. For this form, please contact your own office. INVITATION LETTER
After the departmental authorities confirm your visit, our office will send you an Invitation Letter by e-mail. (If requested, original copy will be also sent by snail mail.). CONFIRMATION SHEET (CERTIFICATE OF STAY)
When you finish your programme here, as Office we will issue a confirmation letter which shows that you have been at Sakarya University within the framework of Erasmus+ Programme. ACCOMODATION
Visiting academic staff would be responsible for their own accommodation. However, to have an idea about accommodation opportunities and travel arrangements please visit accommodation and travel sections on our webpage.
We wish you a successful mobility programme and a pleasant stay in Bandirma
As International Relations Office, we do not provide accommodation; however, we are trying to help as soon as possible.
For student mobility:
Unfortunately Erasmus+ students do not benefit from university’s dormitory. But they can stay private dormitories or apart all of which have an easy acces to the campus. The rent is on average and the rooms are always furnished. It also makes sense to share the flat with other Erasmus+ students or to rent a small apartment yourself. Moreover, most of our students reach us to host Erasmus+ students at their houses as a roommate or a housemate.
As Office, we have also created a buddy system in which we assign buddies to each student or to ask former outgoing students to assist Erasmus students during their whole stay about accommodation, travel arrangements and about giving information about the university, city and the country in general.
For staff mobility
Staffs who come Bandirma Onyedi Eylul University within Erasmus+ Mobility program can stay at our university’s guest house by paying the fee by themselves. The fee per person for per night is 30 TLs.
