Information for Outgoing Students

This webpage provides information about the applications that should be made to the Law School by students that have been elected to spend a semester as an Erasmus+ exchange student at a foreign higher education institution.

Why and when to apply to the Law School?

Students have to make an application to the Law School at three phases of the exchange program.

Before mobility

Before mobility, students should make an application to the Law School in order to have two documents signed:

  • Learning agreement (before mobility)
  • Course equivalency form (before mobility)

This application should be made at least one month prior to the beginning of mobility.

Foreign higher education institutions may request the learning agreement prior to the beginning of the mobility. In such cases, the application to the Law School should be made at least one month before the learning agreement is needed.

During mobility

If the courses that have been agreed on in the learning agreement (before mobility) have to be changed during mobility, students should make another application to the Law School in order to have two additional documents signed:

  • Learning agreement (during mobility)
  • Course equivalency form (during mobility)

This application should be made at least one month prior to the end of mobility.

Foreign higher education institutions may request the submission of the learning agreement (during mobility) prior to the end of mobility. In such cases, the application to the Law School should be made at least one month before the learning agreement (during mobility) is needed.

After mobility

After the completion of mobility, the student should make an application to the Law School for the recognition of the courses and transfer of grades.

Who should apply to the Law School?

Undergraduate students who major in law should make their applications to the Law School. Undergraduate students who major in law and pursue a double major or minor program in another faculty or department should also make their applications with regard to all courses that they plan to take as an exchange student to the Law School.

Postgraduate students who study in a master (LL.M.) or doctorate (Ph.D.) program in private or public law should make their applications to the Graduate School of Social Sciences and Humanities.

Who and how to apply to?

Application should be made by an e-mail to the Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School. Contact information of the coordinator is provided at the end of this page.

Prior to the application, students should examine the course list of the receiving higher education institution and select the courses that they plan to take during mobility. All students that will spend a semester as an Erasmus+ exchange student have to enroll in lectures/thesis/projects worth 30 ECTS credits, even if they have completed all their course load at Koç Üniversitesi. In order to receive the remaining amount of the grant, students have to be successful in and transfer the grades of courses worth at least 20 ECTS credits (i.e. 2/3 of the taken credits).

It is encouraged to contact the Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School prior to the selection of courses. For students who pursue a double major or minor program and want to transfer some or all courses taken during mobility to their double major or minor program, it is recommended to contact the coordinator of the relevant faculty or department prior to the selection of courses. In any case, the Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School may require the opinion of the coordinator of the relevant faculty or department.

Documents for application made before or during mobility

The e-mail to be send to the Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School before mobility and during mobility should include the following information:

  • Identity and student number of the applicant
  • Receiving higher education institution
  • Year and semester of mobility
  • Information about and syllabi of selected courses
  • Information about double major or minor programs
  • Information about the courses that will be transferred to the double major or minor program

  • Language of the course
  • ECTS credits of the course
  • Amount of contact hours
  • Content of the course
  • Evaluation methods (e.g. written exam, oral exam, presentation, term paper, participation)

Documents for application after mobility

After the completion of mobility, the original transcript obtained from the receiving higher education institution should be submitted to the Administrative Assistant to the Dean of Law School.

For the transfer of grades, an e-mail containing the following documents should be send to the Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School.

  • Copy of the transcript
  • Copy of the learning agreement before mobility and (if present) during mobility signed by all parties
  • Copy of the course equivalency form before mobility and (if present) during mobility

It is sufficient to send the scanned copies of these documents in the attachment of the e-mail.

What is the procedure after the application?

After the application made before, during and after mobility, the Administrative Board of the Law School renders a decision about the application.

The decision of the Administrative Board of the Law School is notified to the applicant by the Administrative Assistant to the Dean of Law School with an e-mail.

After this notification, the applicant should prepare the relevant documents in accordance with the mentioned decision and send them to the Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School.

The Erasmus and Global Exchange Programs Coordinator of the Law School sends the scanned copies of the signed documents by e-mail.
