Erasmus Policy Statement

Since it was established, the vision of Doğus University has been to offer excellent academic services at higher education level. Within this framework, our institution constantly aims at extending the spectrum of its education activities to the benefit of the academic staff and students by expanding and raising teaching and research collaborations both at European and international levels. We also aim to increase the variety of academic disciplines available for mobility.

Following this principle, Doğus University values the Erasmus+ programme as a key contributor towards the realisation of this aspiration. Erasmus+ programme brings out the necessary means by which students can realise the integration of their knowledge and skills within the context of a multicultural and a multi-knowledge environment.

We strongly believe that new alliances will allow our institution to successfully create novel opportunities that will promote excellence and quality achievement in academic, personal and professional development.

Student mobility at Doğuş University receives exclusive attention and our institution ensures the arrangement of equal academic attitude and services to home and incoming Erasmus+ students, hence, giving a chance to each incoming Erasmus+ student to become an absolutely integrated and competent student of the university.

As the University supports the Erasmus+ Mobility, orientation programs and information meetings are regularly held by our International Relations Office at the beginning of the Academic Year. In addition, prospective students are informed about the Erasmus+ Programme during several international educational fairs.

During the orientation program incoming/outgoing students are given an opportunity to learn about the advantages and challenges of the programme. We prepare and offer a specific orientation plan for incoming students helping them to familiarize with new academic, cultural and social environment.

Our University gives priority to partnering with HEIs of diverse cultures and HEIs that are based in different geographical areas. DOU seeks to partner with Higher Education institutions that comply with the Bologna and the EHEA frameworks and standards. As the Bologna process has been implemented by Dogus University, full recognition of courses, transcripts in ECTS credits, grades and Diploma Supplement are given to incoming/outgoing students.

On the basis of its strategy Doğuş University is currently in the research process for new projects and programmes with its ERASMUS partners and other universities, accredited by their official national bodies in each country of origin, aiming to deliver these programmes in Europe and other countries internationally. These actions will intensify each institution’s strengths and expertise and offer unique, mutual, and major benefits for all institutions involved.
