Erasmus+ Application to Study Abroad
Student Application Criteria
There are three key criteria of which applicants will be assessed:
To participate in the Erasmus+ Student Mobility programme, students should have already demonstrated good academic progress in their undergraduate or postgraduate course. Undergraduate students must be in their second or third year of their studies. Postgraduate, PhD and foundation degree students are able to apply for the Erasmus+ exchange.
Motivation and ambassadorial qualities
Candidates are required to submit a CV and a personal statement outlining their motivation for applying. These should be sent to their Faculty Erasmus Coordinator (FEC). Candidates may wish to demonstrate in their personal statement their ambassadorial experience and qualities, plus evidence of relevant extracurricular activity. Furthermore, candidates may wish to provide reasons for visiting their country of choice.
Whilst the majority of courses abroad will be tailored for English speaking students, having already obtained knowledge of the mother language of the host country will be greatly beneficial.
You are strongly advised to read the Erasmus+ Student Charter before applying.

There are five stages a student must go through in order to participate in the Erasmus+ Student Mobility programme through Tbilisi Teaching University Gorgasali.
Please read these stages in further detail below:
1. Firstly, you should read the Erasmus+ student application criteria. This will give you a good idea of the qualities we are looking for in our applicants. Also review the Erasmus+ Student Charter to understand what the purpose and vision of the programme.
2. Secondly, write an email to your Faculty Erasmus Coordinator outlining the reasons why you would like to embark on the Erasmus+ Student Mobility programme. Attach to that email your CV as well as your Personal Statement.
3. If you are accepted, you will then need to complete the Learning Agreement (LA). You may not proceed to stage 4 until this stage has been completed. The process for finalizing and having your Learning Agreement approved is at the Faculty level and your Faculty Erasmus + Coordinator will support you through this.
4. As well as the Learning Agreement, you must also fill in a Grant Agreement (GA). This enables you to receive the Erasmus+ grant and you will not be able to participate in the programme unless the form and risk assessment is fully completed.
5. Once you have both your LA and GA completed and authorized, you will then need to ensure you have planned out all other elements of your trip (accommodation, travel, visas etc.). Your Faculty Erasmus Coordinator (FEC) will be able to provide advice. You will additionally need to liaise with your FEC to discuss your study plans whilst you are away. You should consider and formulate your academic objectives, as well as a rough schedule of when you and your FEC will aim to communicate via Skype.
