Yasar University, Izmir , Turkey
The university is located in the tourist town of Izmir on the Aegean coast, West Turkey. The modern and newly built campus is only 10 minutes by train from the city centre. Internationality and practice-oriented programmes are very important. In 2010, the university was awarded "best practice" by the European Commission within the framework of ERASMUS - a label that the university likes to use on its flag and which is intended to encourage exchange students even more to choose a historically influenced and at the same time culturally and geographically attractive destination such as Izmir as a study abroad destination. Remember, you're studying in a place that attracts tourists from all over the world!

Application for an ERASMUS scholarship
We have an ERASMUS partnership with YU 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 (maximum one page); 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 endeavour 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 Yasar Universitesi
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.
(Status: 26.04.2018, VvH)
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 administration 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.
Students who receive an ERASMUS grant can combine it with AuslandsBAföG.
Cost of living
YASAR recommends an average monthly cost of living (excluding accommodation) of around €300. 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 (e.g. for the rent deposit, the ticket, etc.) may arise. Some discounts are available with the International Student Card.
At least 20 ECTS must be successfully completed during the semester abroad for recognition at the EBC University.
With your application you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules of at least 20 ECTS which you would like to take. In Europe, the number and creditworthiness 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.
