Erasmus+ and Bilateral Exchange Agreements

International exchange programs not only contribute to students academically but also improve their linguistic, cultural and social skills and self-confidence. These experiences make it easier for students to be accepted to graduate education abroad and increase their employability.

MEF University has been participating in the Erasmus+ program since its first academic year. The program comprises study and internship mobility for students, teaching and training mobility for academic staff, and strategic collaborations. Thanks to our law curriculum being 30% in English and the wide variety of elective courses offered in English, our students are well equipped to take courses abroad and foreign incoming students can adapt to our program with ease. Please click here for the current list of elective courses offered in foreign languages and their contents.

Currently, there are both undergraduate and graduate students placed in institutions abroad under the Erasmus+ Student Learning Mobility. Similarly, our students also benefit from the opportunity to do internships within the scope of Erasmus+ Internship Mobility, for example in law firms such as Wirtschaftskanzlei GvW Graf von Westphalen (Germany) and the Institute of Criminology and Crime Policy at Ghent University (Belgium).

The institutions with which we currently have Erasmus+ agreements are as follows:

1.     Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover (Germany)

2.     Mykolas Romeris University (Lithuania)

3.     Riga Graduate School of Law (Latvia)

4.     Salzburg University (Austria)

5.     Transilvania University (Romania)

6.     Universita degli Studi Suor Orsola Benincasa (Italy)

7.     University of Bialystok (Poland)

8.     University of Lisbon (Portugal)        

9.     University of Rouen Normandy (France)

10.  University of Ruse Angel Kanchev (Bulgaria)

11.  University of Salerno (Italy)

12.  University of Szczecin (Poland)

13.  University of the Peloponnese (Greece)

Within the scope of Erasmus+ Program, not only students but also faculty members benefit from exchange opportunities. Consequently, our students can also take courses from academics who visit our faculty within the scope of Erasmus+ Lecturer Mobility.

International cooperations carried out by our faculty is not limited to the Erasmus+ Program. We have a bilateral protocol with the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. Negotiations are ongoing both with European universities to expand the scope of Erasmus+ agreements and with universities in various other countries, especially in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, to conclude new bilateral agreements.
