The selected universities should provide the common study program/department as at AIU. Applicants have to evaluate availability of the stream and department through partner universities’ websites. The allocation process by the Office of International Relations is based on the GPA score of applicants.

  • Depending on host university’s requirements the allocated applicants have to submit additional documents and to fill up host university’s Application Form and Learning Agreement (a document where applicants have to choose courses for 2023 Fall Semester at host university).

  • Selected courses along with credit hours at home and host Universities must coincide at least for 80%, so that after returning from the mobility programme the courses along with credit hours can be recognized at home University. Hence applicants have to choose the disciplines very accurately in assistance with the Head of Departments. If there is minimum or no coincidence of credits between home and host universities, applicants may risk to prolong their study until they complete missed credits.
