Student Visa and Residence Permit

A student visa is required to register as a student in Turkey. Students who come to Turkey without a student visa will not be able to register as a student nor will get a residence permit.

Student visa must be obtained from a Turkish Consulate or Turkish Embassy; it cannot be obtained within Turkey.

The Erasmus Office sends a Letter of Acceptance for visa to international students who are accepted to Erzincan University as an Erasmus exchange student. Once they arrive, all international students in Turkey, regardless of status, must register with, and obtain, a Residence Permit (ikamet tezkeresi) from the Bureau of Foreign Residence Registration (Yabancılar Şube Müdürlüğü) at Erzincan Directorate of Security (Erzincan Emniyet Müdürlüğü) within one month of entering Turkey.

Erasmus exchange students are given residence permits for the period of time they will be studying at Erzincan University as indicated on the student visa. Students can extend their residence permit if they extend their enrollment.

The Learning Agreement

This document is an agreement between incoming students and the host institution. Students select the subjects they wish to study in consultation with their academic advisor at their home institution. The draft proposal is then uploaded to the online application. The options the student has selected are then considered by the University of Erzincan on the basis of availability and the candidate’s ability and academic background. A decision is then forwarded to the candidate and, if both sides are in agreement, the document is considered as a contract. However, departments do have the right to withdraw their courses at any time before the study period begins.

The Transcript of Records

This document has two functions. Firstly, it is used by departments to make decisions about a candidate’s suitability based on the information supplied on the transcript of records. The transcript functions as a formalized curriculum vitae or resume. The certificate presented to students upon the completion of their studies in Erzincan is also known as a transcript. It out – lines the courses taken and the grades achieved.

The Erzincan University does not provide or guarantee accommodation. However, there are some options that you can use to find your own accommodation: – to rent a private room or flat; check the local newspapers and real-estate agencies; – to rent a room managed by student residence halls (very limited number of beds!) The International Office can help you with providing rooms in student residence halls, but due to shortage of rooms we cannot guarantee you that you will really get a bed. All rooms in student residence halls are double rooms. They are furnished and have a shared kitchen and bathroom. We strongly advise our students to book some temporary accommodation for the first few weeks of their stay in Erzincan and then look for a private accommodation.
