What to do after the qualification to ERASMUS?

You must complete the Learning Agreement Form (LA) containing your chosen subject of the host institution and settlement form of study. Remember that you must realize the compulsory subjects in the UG  at the host university. If you cannot choose compulsory subjects at the partner university (or not chosen), you have to take the subjects when you return.

 

 

The realization of the subject should be discussed with the teacher leading the subject before you go.

ERASMUS+ scholarship does not relieve the obligation to submit the thesis within a period consistent with the Rules of the University of Gdańsk studies.

Choosing subjects to study in the framework of the ERASMUS+ program, you must be guided by the following principles:

  • Students leaving for a semester are required to pass subjects enabling to obtain a total number equal to or greater than 30 ECTS credits while leaving the full-year number equal to or greater than 60 ECTS credits;
  • Students cannot choose subjects already completed and included in the Faculty of Economics;
  • as far as possible in the first step select subjects that are executed of Faculty of Economics in the existing programs of study;
  • Students can select any number of subjects in the field of foreign language learning, but these items will be included in the Faculty of Economics up to 6 credits.
  • Students should realize at the partner university abroad within the Erasmus+ program compulsory subjects of UG (in the general subjects of study, the group "A" - basic, group "B" - directional) if it is in the offer of the foreign university. If the student selects these items, then enter them in the settlement program of study form (available here - link). If you choose the compulsory subjects, then while LA and settlement form is submitted to accept in the dean's office, syllabi from the foreign university shall be attached.

Your LA form must be approved by one of the coordinators of the ERASMUS+ program, and then by the Dean of the Faculty of Economics of the University according to the following deadlines:
- Not later than 15 June for students leaving for the winter semester or the full year;
- No later than 15 November for students leaving for the summer semester.

NOTE – condition for subject approval by the coordinator of the form LA is the presentation of the completed settlement form.

NOTE - LA along and settlement form of studies program must be submitted to the Dean of the Faculty of Economics, room no.  127 at least 7 days before the required date of approval by the Dean (Dean's Office does not accept the submission of LA without simultaneously form the settlement).

 

 

 

I am already abroad and I need to change my Learning Agreement?

 

If after the arrival at the partner university for any reason it becomes necessary to change the approved program, there must be completed appropriate forms:

  • the second page of Form LA - Changes, taking into consideration rules
  • the settlement of a revised form of studies conducted abroad (Rozliczenie programu studiów realizowanego za granicą w ramach programu Erasmus+).

 

The procedure for signing Changes to LA is the same as for the signature LA (in case of stay abroad scanned forms, both LA and a settlement form of study should be sent to a trusted person who will deal with the approval of forms by the coordinator and the dean).
