2. Participation of Kazakhstan universities in International Credit Mobility

       In order to receive funding, a university from a Program Country and a university from a Partner Country must enter into a bilateral mobility agreement and fill out an application for funding. Then, the university from the Country of the Program contacts the authorized National Agency in its country, which assesses the quality of the application and, based on the results, makes a decision on support or rejection of the application. To participate in a project on international credit mobility, it is necessary to sign an inter-institutional agreement between the institution of higher education in the Country of the Program and the institution of higher education in the Country of the Partner. In this document, the receiving and sending universities agree and approve the number of open courses / programs for students and the proposed opportunities for staff. The agreement should also include the recognition of loans upon completion of the mobility program.
An application for participation in international credit mobility is submitted only by the institution of the Program Country. To participate and apply, the university applicant for the Program Country must sign the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education. For a university from the Partner Country, membership in the Charter is not required, but its fundamental principles in terms of organizing mobility are prescribed and enshrined in the inter-institutional agreement. Universities Partner Countries, signing an inter-institutional agreement, a priori must adhere to the principles of the Charter. Thus, universities undertake to provide the highest quality in organizing the mobility of students and teachers, including the relevance, accessibility and transparency of information about training programs, the presence of ECTS (or a similar system) for recognition procedures, etc.
