STEP BY STEP ERASMUS REGISTRATION PROCEDURE
STEP 1 CONTACT YOUR LOCAL ERASMUS CO-ORDINATOR IN YOUR HOME UNIVERSITY OR YOUR LOCAL IRO (International Relations Office).
If you want to come and study at the Higher Education Institution of Glass (HEIG), the first thing you need to do is to contact your coordinator in your home university and discuss your candidacy with him/her. We can only accept incoming students for the areas of studies specified in bilateral agreements between universities. So check with your local LLP/Erasmus officers to which universities and to which departments or faculties of these universities you can travel next academic year.
STEP 2 APPLY.
2.1 SEND your ON LINE Registration form and print it out.
Your Local Erasmus Co-ordinator will provide you with the Username and Password required.

The next step is to send a completed Erasmus Student Application Form to the central Erasmus/Office at the HEIG.
The deadline for sending us this Application Form is 30th March - 30 June for the first semester or Full Academic course mid October to 30 November for the second semester.

These documents need several signatures and stamps from your home university so we advise you to start the procedure on time.
2.3 Learning Agreement or Proposed Study Programme Abroad. Once your Application is approved, all parties (student, host institution and sending institution) need to sign the Learning Agreement. This has to be done before the student leaves for Spain. In case the Learning Agreement should be altered due to unexpected changes in the programme, sickness of the teacher, this has to be done before 31st October 2004. The Learning Agreement includes all course units you are planning to follow at the HEIG. Please pay attention to the fact that the list only contains course units that are taught during the period of your stay (meaning that some courses may be taught in one semester only).
2.4 Language courses. Those who apply must demonstrate and adequate knowledge of the Spanish language, given that all classes are given in Spanish. A CEF (Common European Framework) B1 Level is advised. As such, it is recommended that they sign up for the free Spanish Course at the beginning of each semester, both to improve their knowledge of the language and to familiarise themselves with the many university activities. PLEASE REMEMBER it is important you mark if you want the Spanish Language Course when applying ON LINE. Forms sent to any other office would not be considered.
