Learning Agreement

The Erasmus programme provides for the recognition of the academic achievements undertaken abroad in the home university. The two most important documents in the recognition process are the Learning Agreement and the Transcript of Records.

Your Learning Agreement is relevant for you before, during and after the mobility. In it, you agree with us and with the host university on the study programme you will follow abroad.

Before the mobility

In order to fill out the Learning Agreement and to be able to ensure the later recognition of your study achievements abroad, you must obtain information on the courses offered at the host university before your mobility and discuss your choice with us.

Once the courses you wish to take abroad have been determined, enter them in Table A of the Learning Agreement. You must select, take and pass courses of at least 15 to 30 ECTS per semester. In Table B you enter the courses or modules that you would attend equivalently at the RUB.

To ensure that the Learning Agreement is binding, you, we and the Erasmus coordinator of the host university sign the agreement. By signing, we confirm that the chosen courses are recognisable; the host university declares that the curriculum can be realised in this way.

Please send a scan with the signatures of all involved parties by July 15 (for mobilities starting in the following winter semester) or December 15 (for mobilities starting in the following summer semester) as PDF to

During the mobility

If there are any changes to the originally selected courses on site, please enter them on the form "During the Mobility", have this form signed by us and the host university and sign it by yourself. You should also discuss the changed courses with us in advance.

After the mobility

After your stay abroad, the host university will issue you with a "Transcript of Records" which lists your academic achievements. With this document you can have your courses recognised. Please submit the Transcript of Records to the Study Coordinator and send a scan of the document to

Important: The Transcript of Records must be written in English or German and should contain a description of the grading system of your host university.
