We have Erasmus Exchange Agreements with the following universities:

Incoming Students

To apply as an incoming Erasmus student:

  • You should be a full-time student at your home university.
  • Your university must nominate you.
  • You must submit the online application form along with all required enclosures no later than the application deadline.

If you wish to study in our department as an Erasmus exchange student, you should inform your home university first. Students who are nominated by their home institutions must submit the online application and all accompanying enclosures* by May 30 for the fall semester or for the full academic year, or by November 30 for the spring semester. 

You can make your course selections from the following web page:


The fall and spring semester offerings may not be finalized by the date of your application; however, checking the previous year’s offerings for the semester/s in question will give you an idea of what might be available. To do this, please click on the “Offerings” heading for the department and change it to the semester (spring or fall) that you are interested in.

Bilkent University is an English-medium university. Therefore, applicants whose native language is not English are required to provide a proof of their proficiency in English by presenting a letter issued by the international office of their home university indicating that they can follow what is being taught in English.

Erasmus+ Exchange Application:


Outgoing Students

To apply as an outgoing Erasmus student;

  • You should have a minimum CGPA of 2.50.
  • You should currently be in at least your third or at most your fifth semester of registration.

If you meet the above conditions, you are eligible to submit an application online through the university’s web-based system  at http://app.erasmus.bilkent.edu.tr/ to study for a semester or a full academic year abroad.

You can then print out your application form, sign it and submit the hard copy to the Erasmus Exchange Coordinator in the department along with your CV and statement of purpose between certain dates. Starting and ending deadlines change every year; to find out what they are for the year you are applying, please contact the departmental Erasmus Exchange Coordinator and check your email. 

If you are interested in going to a university where the language of instruction is other than English, you will also need to submit an official certificate verifying your proficiency level in that language. The level should be at minimum B2. For those who do not have such a certificate, exams in Italian, Spanish, German, and French are held at Bilkent University; the schedules for these exams are announced by the Office of International Students and Exchange Programs (OISEP). Students who would like to take an exam must notify OISEP.  

OISEP uses a program that can access the student database and calculate the rankings of the students in a particular department. That ranking will be based on CGPA (50%) and language proficiency (50%). The language proficiency level of each applicant will be calculated based on his/her grades in the ENG 101 (25%) and ENG 102 (25%) courses.  Students with disabilities and children of veterans and soldiers who have died in service to their country will receive an extra 10 points.  Students who have applied to the program and been placed in previous years but later cancelled their applications will have 10 points deducted.

Qualifying students’ CGPAs will be checked by OISEP at the end of each semester for fall and spring outgoing exchanges to make sure that they remain qualified for the program.
