I have heard about OLS – Online Linguistic Support: what is it?

The OLS is a programme of Linguistic Support for Erasmus+ mobility participants. All our Erasmus+ trainees must sit an online language test at the start and at the end of their Erasmus+ mobility period. They may also take an online language course during their mobility in order to improved their language competences. More information here: Online linguistic support (OLS)

I need help with my learning agreement, where do I go?

Contact the Office of your study field that follows up Erasmus+ traineeship. The approval of the content of the learning agreement and the recognition of credits upon return are tasks of your Degree Programme.

When is the deadline to present my Learning agreement on AlmaRM?

Take plenty of time before the start of your traineeship: the Degree Programme Board must approve it and after that you must also obtain the signature of your host institution. The fully completed LAT must be uploaded in AlmaRM before the start date of your traineeship. We advise you to present your Learning Agreement for Traineeship at least two months before the start of your traineeship.

When is the deadline to hand in the mobility agreement?

The Mobility Agreement must be delivered , through the upload on the AlmaRM tool, before the beginning of the traineeship mobility and in any case no later than the first week of the month before the beginning of the mobility, regardless of the conclusion of LAT approval procedure.

 

I can’t print out the mobility agreement?

If you are on Erasmus+ mobility for study, you can print the mobility agreement for traineeship only once you have uploaded on AlmaRm your “end of period” certificate for E+ studies, thus certifying the official end date of your Erasmus+ study period.

Who informs the host institution about the traineeship?

It’s your personal responsibility to maintain the relationship with your host institution. After you’ve accepted the traineeship we suggest that you contact the host institution to confirm the traineeship and the exact start date. We will write them to thank for the traineeship offer, confirm that you will be an Erasmus+ trainee and explain the administrative steps that will be required. You’ll receive copy of this message.

How can I find accommodation?

Please contact your host organisation for information about possible housing services.
