Mevlana Exchange Programme is a programme which aims the exchange of students and academic staff between the Turkish higher education institutions and higher education institutions of other countries. With the regulation published in August 23, 2011 (num: 28034), students and academic staff exchange between Turkish higher education institutions and higher education institutions of other countries has been possible.
What is different from other Exchange programmmes is that mobility of Mevlana Programme includes all the higher education institutions around the world without any regional discrimination.
Students may study abroad for one (minimum) or two (maximum) terms and academic staff may lecture abroad from two weeks (minimum) to three months (maximum). (While students can benefit the scholarship only for 1 semester, academic staff can benefit from the scholarship up to three weeks.) Accordingly, students and academic staff from any country may benefit from this programme being hosted by Turkish higher education institutions in order to study or lecture.
