Learning Agreement for Studies is a form where 3 parties - the student, the host university and home university - agree on the courses and duration of the mobility.
NB! Learning Agreement has to be signed before the beginning of exchange studies and it is a prerequisite for scholarship contract and grant payment. Scanned signatures are accepted on the Learning Agreement, so the document can be sent by e-mail.
Filling out Learning Agreement
Before the Mobility
Study cycle - mark if you're a BA, MA or PhD student
Field of Education - you can search for the fields and codes here. If you face difficulties in finding the area then please contact TU Senior Specialist for International Studies.
Planned period of the mobility - it should be as precise as possible as the Erasmus grant will be calculated based on that. These dates will be checked by the home university after the end of exchange studies abroad.
Table A. Courses to be taken at the host university
Table B. Here you should mark down these Tallinn University (TU) courses which will be replaced by the courses taken at the host university.
NB! If some of the courses will not be transferred by replacing specific courses, you have to indicate that other courses will be transferred as "Free elective courses".
NB! In any case, both tables should be first discussed through and agreed with student's Study Programme Administrator at TU. This way it will be ensured that the courses passed at the host university will be counted as integral parts to fulfilling student's Study Programme at Tallinn University.
Component code = course code
Component title = course title
Commitment. For the preliminary Learning Agreement, signatures are to be gathered from (1) the student and (2) TLU Erasmus Departmental Coordinator (and in case of some TU Schools, also from the Study Programme Administrator). After successful applying, signature from (3) responsible person at the hosting university is also needed.
When duly signed, the Learning Agreement should also be sent to TU Senior Specialist for International Studies by e-mail (email@example.com).
During the Mobility
Tables A2 and B2. To be filled in if you need to change your initial Learning Agreement.
Fill in only Table A2 (with the updated courses at the host university) if at the end of your exchange studies you plan to transfer these courses taken abroad to your TU Study Programme as free electives.
Fill in both the Tables A2 and B2 (with the updated courses at the host university, and their equivalents at TLU) if at the end of your exchange studies you plan to transfer the courses taken abroad to TU Study Programme as courses substituting concrete complusory/specialization subjects. Or fill in both tables also in case you plan to bring back the courses taken abroad to your TU Study Programme both as the complusory/specialization courses and as free electives.
Commitment. Signatures are to be gathered from (1) the student, (2) TLU Erasmus Departmental Coordinator (and in case of some TLU Schools, also from the Study Programme Administrator), (3) responsible person at the hosting university.
When duly signed, the Learning Agreement should also be sent to TLU Senior Specialist for International Studies by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
After the Mobility
Table C. This part is to be sent to the student and TU Senior Specialist for International Studies by the host university at the end of the exchange studies. This part confirms the actual beginning and end dates of the exchange studies' period, as well as the passed courses, received credits and grades.
NB! Host universities choose themselves whether they issue a separate Transcript of Records and a Confirmation Letter (with the beginning and end dates of exchange-studies), or use this last part of the Learning Agreement: After the Mobility (Table C). If they opt for issuing a separate Transcript of Records, yet they don't have a special form for Confirmation Letter, you can find the relevant form here.
In either case, TU Senior Specialist for International Studies should receive the the last "After the Mobility" part with Table C, or Transcript of Records and Confirmation Letter combined by e-mail.
Table D. This part stays unfilled. Tallinn University's equivalent to this is the Credit Transfer Application in the Study Information System (ÕIS), which have to be done by the student him-/herself once back in Estonia and Tallinn University.
This page explains the terms in the text of the Learning Agreement, and indicates what has to be written in the gaps.
NB! If necessary, please add rows to all tables (A and B / A2 and B2 / C).
