Study Abroad Programs are overseen by the METU International Cooperations Office. You may reach detailed information regarding these programs, such as application criteria and the application process, at the ICO website: https://ico.metu.edu.tr.

Typically, announcements about student exchange programs are made during the fall semesters and applications to the programs are accepted before the end of the fall semesters. The English Proficiency Exam that is part of the program requirements is also given before the end of the fall semester. Please follow the ICO announcements (http://ico.metu.edu.tr/all-announcements) in order to find information about the exchange program of your interest. 

Please note that as part of the agreements signed by the ICO with the partner universities, METU students who visit these universities as exchange students do not pay the tuition for the host institution.

There are four types of international student mobility programs that are available for METU students: 

 

1. Erasmus+ European Mobility Program

General information about the program: http://ico.metu.edu.tr/information

Information about the application process: https://ico.metu.edu.tr/application-0

Information about the countries and universities with which we have an Erasmus + student exchange agreement*: https://ico.metu.edu.tr/erasmus-eu-agreements-0

*Please note that METU should have a current (ongoing) agreement with a partner institution in order for you to visit that university as an exchange student. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you check the status of the exchange agreement between METU and the institution of your interest before you apply to the program.

Some of the students who apply to the program are entitled to receive a grant support. For the academic year 2019-2020, the grant amount is €650 for a semester. In addition, there are travel grants ranging between €275 and €1,100. Travel grants are calculated based on the distance between Ankara and the city you are visiting as an exchange student.
