Agora University was included by the European Commission in Erasmus Programme 2014-2020
In 2013 Agora University, The Department of Erasmus Programme and International Mobility submitted for approval to European Commission the Erasmus Carta.
In December 2013, The European Commission published the list of the universities whose Carta Erasmus for 2014-2020 was approved, in this list is included also Agora University.
From that moment we started to identify universities from European Union, that are included in this list, that has similar study programmes to ours, as to proceed to sign agreements regarding the exchange of students and university staff.
Usually the exchange is being made for a semester and the ECTS (transferable credits) are recognized.
Excerpts from Regulation Erasmus UAO :
Article 17 Students who wish to participate in mobility programs must demonstrate good knowledge of English language, at least level B2 (Independent), according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Language.
Article 18 The staff of UAO specialized in teaching English will hold trials to determine the level of knowledge of English language for students who wish to enrol in mobility programs.
Article 19 If the language used by the host institution mobility program is not English, UAO will organize jointly with the partner institution language courses via the Internet, with the support e-learning platform of UAO "Agora University Moodle". These language courses will be based on English language, so students who enrol must prove that they are independent users (B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). These courses will be taught by specialized teachers appointed by the partner institution.
