Organise your foreign plans step by step:
STEP 1: Discuss your plans with your senior lecturer or coordinator. Decide whether it is a good idea to leave, which partner institute is the most interesting for you and which period is the most suitable. Think about the courses that you want to follow abroad and how they fit into your curriculum. If you want to complete a work placement or ‘art in the field of action’ in a different country, your work placement coordinator can give you advice.
STEP 2: Investigate the possibilities and conditions related to an exchange with the partner institutes that interest you. Every partner has its own deadlines for submitting an application. Be sure to check out the procedures on their website. You can find a list of partner institutes and their websites here. Many schools work with an academic calendar that differs from our calendar. View their calendar and investigate whether it is compatible with your own schedule and that of your annual programme.
STEP 3: Make your choice and select a partner institute. Please note that your choice is not yet their choice. The internationalisation department will submit your application together with your portfolio (KASK) or recording (Conservatory). The partner institute decides whether you are accepted or not. They will assess the quality of your portfolio or recording and check whether there is space available within your area of study.
STEP 4: Register online. The online registration for 2018-2019 has to happen before March 25 via https://www.hogent.be/student/internationaal/registreren/. This registration differs from your application at the partner school or internship workplace.
There is an important deadline for Erasmus scholarships. You have to register before March 25 of the academic year that precedes the academic year when you are planning an Erasmus exchange programme or work placement. That is the only way to be eligible for a scholarship and be accepted in the selection procedure. Registering after this date significantly reduces your chance of obtaining a scholarship.
STEP 5: Print your registration form and contact the internationalisation department to follow up your application. Prepare your portfolio or make your recording.
