      4. Due to COVID19, you don’t have to visit your coordinator office. Please send us by email your Changes to LA signed by you and we’ll take care about the rest of the procedure.
      5. We will send a scan to your university and to you as well.

P.S: If you would like to prolong your stay for the 2nd semester, do the same as above, preparing the document Changes to the original LA.

 

IMPORTANT: Please, don’t forget to fill in all the blanks in the document (Changes to LA), to help us expedite contact with your university and receive the signature as soon as possible.

Also do not rewrite the code, the letter at the end is extremely important information for us (W – winter or S – summer).

If it is prepared by your university, its name can be different (e.g. Letter of Confirmation, Certificate of Erasmus Stay etc.). You should download it from your university website, print it and bring this paper for us to sign. It can also be the same document where you proved your arrival (e.g. Certificate of Arrival/Departure).
      • When our office receives all your grades from teachers, we will prepare Transcript of Records and send to you and to your university.

The whole procedure takes normally no more than 5 weeks.
