Application as ERASMUS Scholar

Application Process

We have an ERASMUS partnership with Işik Üniversitesi and a certain number of exchange places per semester. You can apply for these places.

The ERASMUS application procedure is divided into two steps: 

Step 1: Application to the EBC University

You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and hand in the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation in English (one page maximum); include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in the last paragraph of your cover letter, in which you would be interested if we had to cancel your first request.
  • Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)

The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it counts academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.

We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.

If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will try to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).

Step 2: Application to the partner university

After the EBC University has officially nominated you at the partner university, apply there. The application procedure differs from university to university. You will find out what you need to do soon after your nomination. The host university also reserves the right to decide on admission.

Tuition fees

We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university. You can apply for an ERASMUS place (Attention - the number of ERASMUS places is limited).

For the participation in the ERASMUS programme, an administrative fee of 750,-€ is due. In this case, no further tuition fees will be charged at the ERASMUS university in which the student is enrolled.

Cost of living

The semester abroad in Turkey can be well managed with a student budget. Experience shows that you have to calculate an average of 300€ for monthly living costs (excl. accommodation). Please note that you may have travel costs the further away you live from the university or how much time you have to allow for travel to and from the university. A slightly more expensive room in a more central location could then be cheaper than one outside.

It is also important to note that especially at the beginning of your stay, higher costs may arise (e.g. for the rent deposit, the ticket, etc.).

Some discounts are available with the International Student Card.


Students who receive an ERASMUS grant can combine it with AuslandsBAföG.


Learning Agreement

Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take. In Europe, the number and credit value of the courses varies, so make sure you get precise information. The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of courses at the EBC University and is therefore binding.

Transcript of Records

Your Transcript of Records, the semester abroad, proves that you have successfully completed the course. The average of your achievements is converted according to the modified Bavarian formula. 20 ECTS are hereby recognised and are included in the overall grade of your studies.

At least 20 ECTS must be successfully completed during the semester abroad for recognition at the EBC University.



For Germans and most EU citizens there is no visa requirement up to a stay of 90 days. Since the country does not belong to the EU, please note the regulations on residence permits for Turkey; the same applies to exceeding the 90-day period. Please inform yourself well in advance of your departure. If you are a citizen of another country, please contact the respective embassy to apply for a visa.


Isik University has its own student residences. However, there is no guarantee for this. To apply for a room, you must submit the request together with your application.
