Traineeship Programs:

You are supposed to prepare your traineeship programs with the mentor accepting you at Yildiz Technical University and the responsible person at your home university.  You should inform him/her about the details of traineeship required by your home university and accordingly s/he will accept or offers some changes so as to be in line with Yildiz Technical University.

 

Accommodation:

Unfortunately YTU does not provide accommodation at university dormitories. You can either search for private apartments, dormitories or share flats with other students. ESN YTU team will help you in finding accommodation.

 

Financial Aid: Students will not receive any economic compensation and will not be provided any kind of insurance at Yıldız Technical University and therefore must come approved as Erasmus+ Trainees from their home universities, receiving their grants and proper insurances (health, accident and liability) for this program.

 

Visa:

You are supposed to get in touch with Turkish Consulate at your home country to learn more about a proper visa for this program. Thanks to official regulations, you may have an opportunity to visit Turkey without a visa, but note that this opportunity is only valid for touristic vacations, therefore YTU refuses any responsibility caused by not having a valid visa. Moreover, in any case you are required to hold a valid passport (not a national ID) which will be valid for at least 6 months upon finishing traineeship program. It is highly recommended that your traineeship period will be not more than 90 days since you will be exposed to a long and tiring procedure of residence permit.
