Erasmus+ Consortia means a group of higher education institutions with Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) and other organizations (companies, associations, chambers of commerce, municipalities, foundations, etc.) coming together to offer more and better Erasmus traineeship opportunities to the students of higher education. Kadir Has University has become part of such a consortium, namely European Internship Consortium (Avrupa Staj Konsorsiyumu) in order to be able to increase quantity and quality of traineeship opportunities in Europe for its students.


European Internship Consortia has been established by five higher education institutions, namely Kadir Has University, Istanbul ┼×ehir University, Istanbul Kültür University (as the coordinator), Üsküdar University, Sabanc─▒ University, and three non-governmental organizations, namely Istanbul Chambers of Industry (ISO), Turkey Informatics Foundation (TBV) and Turkish Cultural Foundation - AFS (TKV-AFS). The Consortia operates within the framework of Erasmus+ Program, Key Action 1 - Learning Mobility of Individuals, supported by the European Commission and the Republic of Turkey.


For internship applications through an Erasmus+ Consortium, students do not have to find an internship place prior to the application. In other words, students can apply without arranging a place for themselves in advance. The consortium will match the selected students with the available spots and final placements will be decided according to the demands of the enterprise / organization. The Consortium does not guarantee to find a place due to the fact that requirements of the enterprise / organization from the trainee for the relevant position will be the determining factor for the final decision. Those who are selected by the enterprise / organization may be called for an interview.


Students may also apply with an invitation letter if they have already found a place for themselves. In this case, the Consortium will decide about the suitability of the place for the student. If positive, those students will have priority in the allocation of available grant.
