EQUIVALENCE OF ECTS POINTS GAINED UNDER THE PRACTICE ABROAD
Each Erasmus student should be guaranteed the recognition of the full period of internship taken on a foreign institution/company. This means recognition of a foreign period of practice as equivalent to the period of practice in the country.
Firstly, the home institution has to approve the practise plan of a host institution before the student leaves. The three sides sign the ?Learning Agreement for Internships? -the home institution, host university or host institution and the student.
Any changes applying to the rules of these agreements have to be approved in writing.
Any documents related crediting points should be accepted and signed by the competent person in Dean?s Office.
Second prerequisite for a student to credit a practice is ofcourse completion of a set program. In the case of Internships it?s a Certificate of Attendance and the document confirming the completion of the assumed program together with an assessment issued by the host university/institution.
In accordance to the agreement between the National Agency and the University while signing the ?Learning Agreement?, University should minimize the impact of discrepancies, by always precisely define the equivalents before student?s departure. Student should have to ?work off? a minimum program differences after returning from the scholarship.
