Learning agreement
The purpose of the Learning Agreement is to provide a transparent and efficient preparation of the exchange to make sure the student receives recognition for the activites successfully completed abroad. 
The Learning Agreement sets out the programme of the studies or the traineeship to be followed abroad and must be approved by the student, the sending and the receiving institution, organisation or enterprise before the start of the exchange.
The Learning Agreement should include all the learning outcomes the student is expected to acquire during the exchange.
For student mobility for studies, the Learning Agreement should set out the group of educational components that will be replaced in the student’s degree upon successful completion of the study programme abroad. See the guidelines below.
For student mobility for traineeships, the Learning Agreement should set out how the traineeship will be recognised depending on whether it counts towards the student’s degree, is taken on a voluntary basis (not obligatory for the degree) or is being carried out by a recent graduate. See the guidelines below.
All three parties signing the Learning Agreement commit to comply with all the agreed arrangements, thereby insuring that the student will receive the recognition for the studies or traineeship carried out abroad without any further requirements.
