 23. What should I pay attention to when choosing a course?

On the web site of the university you will visit Erasmus+, the courses to be opened for students who are under Erasmus+ are shared. Our students who will go to Erasmus+ determine the courses they will choose according to the courses they are responsible for at Gazi University. During this election, students should go to the elective courses as much as possible in the courses belonging to Gazi University; students who are not obliged to take elective courses should go to the course selection. In addition, both the name of the course and the similarity of the course content should be emphasized.

24. I am a graduate student. The coordinator of the Institute of Social Sciences does not appear in the signature section of the learning agreement. Is the signature of the Erasmus Department Coordinator sufficient?

For the students of the Institute, both the Erasmus Department Coordinator and the Erasmus Institute Coordinator are required to sign. For this, the table of Erasmus Department Coordinator's information should be divided into two and the information and signature of the Erasmus Institute Coordinator should also be included.

25. I got an internship in both Erasmus+ and Erasmus+ internship programs for the internship. Can I also carry out a consortium internship at an institution where I have an acceptance letter for my Erasmus+ internship? Or do I have to go to another institution?

Consortium training may be continued at the same institution or at another institution, provided that the acceptance letters received from the relevant institutions or institutions are approved by the Erasmus Department Coordinator.

26. Is it possible for me to pair up with a lesson I took from faculty due to the fact that the number of ECTS in the counterpart school to go will be low compared to my faculty?

It is possible as long as it provides the total number of ECTS. However; in this case, the course load will increase and there is a possibility that the lesson in which the student goes through one of the two courses in the counetrpart school that he / she has shown may not be accepted. Therefore, in such a case, the Faculty Administrative Board may not approve this situation. For this reason, when the student returns, he must successfully complete two lessons corresponding to a lesson in order to avoid the equivalence problem.
