- TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE SELECTION OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
Erasmus+program and bilateral agreements
The European University of the Atlantic aims to boost the participation of all the members of the university community in exchange, cooperation and mobility programs between the different countries that make up the EU -via Erasmus agreements and with the rest of the world -via bilateral agreements. The European Erasmus study program is aimed at students from higher education institutions who wish to study in another country for a certain period of time and, in turn, obtain an immediate academic recognition for such stay. These stays in a foreign country make it easy for students to get involved in different cultures and university environments as well as to improve their linguistic abilities and their employability in a job market that is increasingly competitive and international.
This study mobility program call aims to select students to participate in the ERASMUS+ program and the bilateral agreements that the European University of the Atlantic has signed with foreign universities. Students selected for any of these two modalities will be able to study or make an internship in foreign universities with the guarantee that they will enjoy an academic recognition thanks to the Individualized Learning Agreement, whose content will be agreed upon the beginning of the mobility period, that can be modified if both parties agree and which has a binding nature for the students and universities involved in it.

Financial aid for studying in a foreign country may be granted by the European Union’s Erasmus Program via the SEPIE (Servicio Español para la Internacionalización de la Educación). The European University of the Atlantic will distribute and manage the financial aids received. All these financial aids are compatible with any other national financial aid, grant, loan or subsidy to study, which is not the case for other aids financed with funding from the European Union. Likewise, the Erasmus program has a specific financial aid aimed at disabled students. Both the number and amount of financial aids granted will depend on the budget line. Until the allocation of budget for the European University of the Atlantic is not done by the Servicio Español para la Internacionalización de la Educación, it will not be possible to know exactly how many financial aids will be granted and for how long will such aid be possible. In case the budget line allocated to the European University of the Atlantic is not enough as to fund every accepted stay, some allocation criteria will be implemented, consisting of the weighted average of the academic record and in case of a tie, according to the English level accredited.
The sum corresponding to the financial aid will be stated in individual resolutions, according to the type of study grant. Not every place that is allocated will count on a financial aid.
