Academic and administrative staff

In order to be eligible, academic and administrative staff hereafter referred as "staff":

  1. Must be a national of one of the eligible countries;
  2. Must work in or be associated to an HEI within the partnership;

The mobility assignments must be based on partnership agreements between the members of the partnership.

The home and host universities and the individual staff must agree on the programme of lectures to be delivered by the visiting staff, on the research activities or on the type of training to be followed.

The mobility may constitute a post-per-post exchange or a one-way visitor flow to or from a third-country.

Individual Mobility

There are three target groups for individual mobility flows and five different types of individual mobility for students and staff.

  1. Target Group 1 must represent at least 50% of the individual mobility covered by the project;
  2. Third-country students and staff need to represent at least 70% of the individual mobility covered by the project;
  3. European students and staff cannot exceed 30% of the individual mobility flows covered by the project.

Neither European nor third-country candidates can benefit from a second scholarship for the same type of mobility under another project under the EMA2-STRAND1. Furthermore, candidates cannot benefit from more than one mobility activity within the same project.

Mobility flows for students and staff between the European or between third-country institutions involved in the partnership are not eligible.

Student mobility may include a placement period (max 3 months) in the same country of the hosting HEIs partners, provided that it is preceded by a minimum period of study abroad of six months and that it is recognised as an integral part of the student’s programme. The placement should be agreed by all partners concerned and a close monitoring of the students should be ensured.

European universities are advised to be fully aware of the specific conditions in each of the Third-Countries concerned before deciding to send students or staff and to follow the advice of their Ministries of Foreign Affairs.

The mobility of staff should contribute to strengthen international co-operation capacity of higher education institutions in third-countries.

It should aim to consolidate and extend links between departments and faculties and to prepare for future cooperation projects between the universities. Staff mobility is also expected to improve the application of ECTS or other systems for recognition of studies in the partner institution.

Exchange or degree student?

An exchange student is a student (officially registered in a university or other institution for higher education) who temporarily lives in a foreign country and attends courses or is involved in other academic activities. The exchange period lasts minimum 1 semester (minimum 30 ECTS, if less than 12 ECTS the mobility will be stopped) and maximum 1 academic year (minimum 60 ECTS, if less than 12 ECTS the mobility will be stopped). The exchange student does NOT get a diploma from the host university. However, all academic results will be sent to his/her home university. The student pays tuition fee at his home university, not at the host university. Exchange students need the approval of their home and host university: at the time of the mobility they need to present a learning agreement signed by both universities, which is a guarantee for academic recognition of those courses afterwards. Exchange applicants should be aware that they have to be fully supported by their home institution to carry out their mobility period abroad, as recognition of credits is an integral part of this project. Post-doctoral and staff applicants are always considered as exchange, as there is no degree involved in this mobility.

A degree student from Central Asia registers at the university in Europe and is no longer a student from the university at home. He/she pays tuition fee at the host university (covered by participation costs that grantee receives) and will obtain a diploma from the university abroad. Students applying to a European university will need to comply with the host university admission requirements.

Please note:
  • Bachelor, Master and PhD applicants can choose between exchange or degree. A student can participate in exchange if she/he has a sufficient number of ECTS credits left to obtain (minimum 30 ECTS).
  • Graduated students should apply as degree-seeking applicants. Students still in the process of graduating can also apply; these students should mention this in their application form and upload the necessary information about previous degree and transcript of records so far. If selected, they will have to present their degree before they can enroll at the host university.
  • PhD / Postdoc grant holders will be evaluated by the promoter during their mobility. If the evaluation is negative, the grant holder will be asked for a meeting with the contact person of the project to discuss the rest of the mobility period.

Euro-Asian CEA II application is closed.

There will be no new calls.
