how to conclude or renew an exchange cooperation agreement with a foreign university
Aalborg University (AAU) may enter into exchange agreements with foreign universities in connection with student mobility. If an agreement is to be concluded with a university under the Erasmus+ programme, an inter-institutional agreement form (Erasmus agreement) must be used. If the agreement is to be concluded with a third country university (an overseas agreement), a bilateral exchange agreement form must be used.
Conditions for concluding/renewing an exchange agreement with a foreign university
As stipulated by the AAU Executive Management, a balance must be must struck between incoming and outgoing mobility through exchange agreements. This means, among other things, that new cooperation agreements will only be concluded if it is rendered likely that students from AAU will travel to the university in question, and that only one incoming student will be received for each outgoing AAU student.
If an existing agreement is to be renewed, a quality assurance procedure must be run to assess the likelihood that an AAU student will travel to the university in question, and the number of exchangeable students must be adapted to the agreement.
All student exchange agreements made by AAU must be approved at faculty level.
