Inter-Institutional Development & Cooperation

Sample draft agreements can be downloaded - reviewed - modified - discussed - with the department of the prospective partner school

MOU - Memorandum Of Understanding - strategically our Global Study Program seeks to strengthen cooperation with many universities. The MOU officially recognizes the intention to design educational projects mutually beneficial to all parties; as these programs can be multifaceted and may require time and discussion to achieve success, the signed MOU allows for easy access to set up discussion groups, design campus visits and seminars, and mold innovative projects with the acknowledgement that each institution recognizes the quality and contributions of the partners.

SEA - Student Exchange Agreement - established specifically for each institution and contains details relating to the nature of the academics and characteristics of the partner campuses; it may also be designed to include all or designated faculties / departments in the exchange and holds articles on: student eligibility, enrollment requirements, recruitment of students, nature of items exchanged (fees, housing, meals, etc.), balance of the enrollments over time, and any specifics deemed important to achieve a successful exchange.

LE - Letter of Engagement - this is a short version of the "MOU", sometimes preferred by partner schools; used generally for the introduction to begin collaborative projects not necessarily requiring student or faculty reciprocal exchanges.

The office of Yeditepe Global Study Programs will welcome proposed agreements and review and finalize details in the documents before obtaining approval of the senior administrators of the university.
