Do you still want to spend time in another country while studying in Turkey? ALS company offers consultancy services for all these issues.
All your dreams can come true with the student exchange program.
The first program that will make your dreams come true is the Student Exchange program, which is the process you spend at a partner university where you can attend classes or work in another country. Thanks to this process, students can learn the local language, get to know a different culture, and thus have the opportunity to direct their careers.
Students participating in exchange programs do not pay a fee, and they receive a certain grant for tuition and living fees in the countries they visit, depending on the programs they participate in. For accommodation, you may be offered to stay with a host family or live in student dormitories. This is a great opportunity to experience a different lifestyle, new perspectives and alternative academic practices.
The duration of the student exchange program varies depending on the program and country you choose and is divided into two.
- Long-term changes program lasts 6-10-12 months.
- Short-Term exchange programs last from 1 week to 3 months.
Student Exchange Programs are divided into 3:
1. Erasmus
Erasmus program is the most famous exchange program in Turkey. It is financed by the European Union and provides all the opportunities for students to study in a European country. During the Erasmus exchange program, students do not pay any additional tuition fees and are given grants to help with living and rental costs as additional financial support. In the Erasmus program, students can only choose European countries. It is possible to evaluate the Erasmus program in two separate categories. These categories are as follows;
* Student exchange programs called educational mobility
* Internship opportunities abroad, called internship mobility
2.Mevlana Exchange Program
The most important difference between the Mevlana student exchange program and the Erasmus program is that it covers many countries of the world. While students can choose only the European program in the Erasmus program, they can choose many countries of the world in the Mevlana program.
The exchange program encourages the exchange of students and faculty members between universities in Turkey and abroad. Associate, undergraduate, master's and doctoral students can apply.
If you choose the Mevlana exchange program, you can study abroad for at least one and at most two semesters, but it cannot exceed one year in total. As with the Farabi program, you do not pay any fee to the university in the Mevlana exchange program.
Application Conditions for Mevlana Exchange Program
1. The student must be an associate, undergraduate, master's or doctoral student registered in higher education programs that provide formal education,
2. The overall academic grade point average of associate and undergraduate students must be at least 2.50 out of 4.00,
3. The overall academic grade point average of master's and doctoral students must be at least 3.00 out of 4.00.
Farabi Program
It is a program that allows the exchange of students studying at associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees between universities in Turkey since 2008. The most obvious difference between the Farabi exchange program and the Erasmus and Mevlana exchange programs is that the Farabi exchange program is closed to abroad. You can apply for the Farabi exchange program in two periods: Fall and Spring. The program duration is one academic year at most and you do not pay any fees to the university you attend.
- Associate and undergraduate students must have completed the first year and have an average of at least two (2/4) out of four.
- Master's and PhD students must have completed the first semester (Cannot apply for preparatory and scientific preparation) and have a GPA of at least two and a half (2.5/4) out of four.
  When it comes to student exchange programs, International Student Exchange Programs, or ISEP, have been offering students the opportunity to study abroad at universities and colleges around the world for more than 40 years. The ISEP student exchange program operates with more than 300 institutions in 50 different countries, but opportunities will depend on the school you study at. Accordingly, if your university is a member of ISEP, you can exchange places with a student from another ISEP exchange institution.
  International Association for the Exchange of the Students for Technical Experience is an international organization that offers exchange opportunities to students who want to gain technical work experience abroad. During the program, which can last from 4 weeks to 52 weeks, students receive technical training related to the departments they study. You can also consider IAESTE as an internship program where you gain experience.
