How to apply for Erasmus exchange (studies)? 

Ask the International Office in your university to help you. If you want to come with Erasmus+, ask the International Office in your university if they have a bilateral agreement with Eesti Maaülikool or check our list of Erasmus+ partner universities. Before you start appyling for Erasmus exchange at EMÜ, your home university has to send us a nomination (see deadlines below).

If needed, the incoming students coordinator can also conduct a video interview with the applicants to determine their language skills.

In the application, you're required to choose the courses you're interested in following while at EMÜ under "Proposed study plan". 

After your application has been reviewed and you've been approved for all courses, the coordinator at EMÜ will inform you when it's time to prepare your Learning Agreement.
