Initial learning agreement. You must formalise your learning agreement via Portal Serveis Estudiant. If your host university requires the learning agreement to be in the Online Learning Agreement (OLA) format, it must also be formalised in accordance with point 2 below via Erasmus Without Paper.

  1. Via Portal Serveis Estudiant
    • You must formalise your learning agreement in collaboration with your mobility coordinator (a list of mobility coordinators can be found here). Your learning agreement must outline the courses that you will take abroad and the courses that you will have recognised at the UV. Once you have made your learning agreement proposal, your learning must be validated and closed by your mobility coordinator. Only upon the closure of your learning agreement by your coordinator will you be able to print a copy – to do so, click the ‘Print first’ button. Your mobility coordinator must close your learning agreement before 12 July. Otherwise, you will not be able to complete the self-enrolment process. Prior to departure, you must submit a copy of your initial learning agreement duly signed (scanned signatures are accepted) by you, your mobility coordinator at the UV and your mobility coordinator at the host university. Once you complete this step, you must upload it to your Erasmus Studies file.
  2. Via Erasmus Without Paper
    • Some partner universities may require your learning agreement in the new Online Learning Agreement (OLA) format. If your host university requires this format, you must complete the learning agreement on this website. Once validated by both mobility coordinators, you must download your learning agreement and upload it to your Erasmus Studies file.

Guidelines on how to use the Erasmus+ Online Learning Agreement for Studies

Online Linguistic Support "OLS" Initial Language Test and Language Course

Participation in the OLS is voluntary. It is advisable to do it before starting your stay in the destination country and it can be repeated at any time.

STEP 1: Create an account (profile, user) "EU Login" (known as ECAS account) in a European Union application.

STEP 2: Sign up for the EU ACADEMY application

STEP 3: Access the OLS restricted area ("Core restricted area")

You can find links, instructions and tutorials in this document:

http://sepie.es/doc/educacion-superior/ols/Acceder_a_la_NUEVA_OLS_Info_participantes.pdf

Erasmus international study credit self-enrolment. Before leaving for your stay you have to formalize your self-enrolment at the University of Valencia. Once the study contract has been made and after your academic coordinator closes your contract in the computer application, you must access the self-enrolment according to the registration appointment communicated to you from the University of Valencia. It is expected that self-enrolment can be carried out from July 18, 2024.

Enrollment of students with a full course stay: The information from the study contract will be automatically incorporated. Students will only have to confirm that they are going to do a mobility stay when entering their self-enrolment.

Enrollment of students with a semester stay: The information from the study contract will be automatically incorporated. Students must confirm that they are going to do a semester mobility stay when entering their self-enrolment and will register the subjects they are going to take at the University of Valencia.

Mobility students must pay at the University of Valencia the registration fees for the ECTS that the students include in their study contract. You will be exempt from doing so at the destination university.

Visas. If you are travelling to the UK or Turkey, you will need a visa. Please review the information in the "Other..." section. If you are a national of a non-EU country, it is very likely that you will need a visa. Please contact the consulate of the destination country.

Healthcare insurance cover is mandatory and you must apply for your European Health Insurance Card. If you are going to a country where you are not covered by the European Health Insurance Card (Turkey), you will need to take out private insurance. For full course stays in the United Kingdom, you will be required to pay temporary registration in the British social security system as part of visa processing.

Supplementary insurance. The University of Valencia has taken out a policy to cover some contingencies that are not covered by the European Health Insurance Card, including civil liability, accidents and repatriation. The insurance company will send an individual certificate to each student starting in August. Consult the general conditions of the policy, the model of individual certificate and the protocol to communicate with the CASER insurance company. To find out more, contact erasmusuv@seguronline.com

2. On arriving at your chosen university

Certificate of Incorporation. You must report to the International Office of the host university and apply for the Certificate of Incorporation. We accept forms from partner universities. To send it to the International Relations Service, you must enter ENTREU, open "My procedures" and upload it in electronic format (preferably in PDF) within the "Erasmus Studies File" procedure. Save the original as proof. The processing of the first payment of the scholarships will be done in order of receipt of this document.

Modification of the learning agreement. Modifications are only necessary if the courses initially foreseen in the learning agreement are changed. This procedure must be completed via Portal Serveis Estudiant in order for the modifications to be reflected in your academic record. Such requests must be submitted once you are at the host university and no later than five weeks after the beginning of classes. Once the modifications have been requested via Portal Serveis Estudiant, your mobility coordinator must close your learning agreement so that you can have a printed copy of the new agreement with a table of correspondence between courses. This document must be signed by you, your host mobility coordinator and your mobility coordinator at the UV (scanned signatures are accepted).

  • Any modifications made prior to 5 October result in the generation of a new initial learning agreement (or ‘before’), which replaces the previous ones and can be downloaded by clicking on ‘Print first’.
  • Modifications after 5 October result in the generation of a modified learning agreement (or ‘during’). Once it has been closed, it can be downloaded by clicking on ‘Print modified’.
  • Subsequent modifications result in the generation of a new learning agreement (or ‘during’), which incorporates all modifications and replaces the previous modified documents. Modification (‘during’) contracts must be signed by all three parties (student, UV mobility coordinator and host university coordinator) and uploaded without delay to the UV Online Office.

 IMPORTANT REMARK: The first instalment of the grant cannot be paid if any of the aforementioned documents is missing.

Application for extension of study stay. The extension consists of converting a first semester stay into a full course stay. This has academic effects but no economic ones. That is, you will not receive financial support for the period you extend (second semester). In addition to duly submitting the extension request form to erasmus.estudis@uv.es, the study contract must be modified in the terms provided above.
