Study Agreement - Learning Agreement

The Learning Agreement corresponds to the study program that you will undertake during your mobility period. The study agreement defines the curricular units and ECTS credits that you will take at the host institution and that will be subsequently recognized through equivalence to curricular units in the study program at Universidade Lusófona. You should, whenever possible, find a correspondence in ECTS between the curricular units to be completed in mobility and which you want to correspond to in your home course.

How many ECTS should I take during mobility?

The limit number of credits to be taken under the long-term Erasmus + Mobility for Studies (SMS) program is 30 ECTS. For short-term mobility programs (BIPs) the minimum number of ECTS is 3.
