Scoring Criteria

The scoring criteria for participation of undergraduate, postgraduate students and PhD candidates in the Erasmus programme are the following:

A. Undergraduate students

  1. Applicants must have citizenship of a country participating in the program and be enrolled at the Department of Tourism of Ionian University.
  2. First-year undergraduate students are not eligible, but they can apply for mobility during the second year of their studies.
  3. Regarding language proficiency, the language (s) required and the level of qualification in that language (s) shall be at least B1 in the languages required by the host institution, unless otherwise specified by the institution.
  4. Candidates have to demonstrate high motivation to participate in the Program.
  5. Applications from students participating for the first time in the programme, applying for mobility in the second year of their studies are prioritized. Subsequently, the applications of students who participate for the first time in the program and apply for mobility during the third year of their studies are examined. Then, the applicants for mobility during the fourth year of study that apply for the first time are examined.
  6. Special provisions will apply per year of study.

Scoring criteria for undergraduate students

A. Performance criteria

  • Average grade of course performance multiplied by ten (10).
  • Total ECTS credits of successfully passed courses multiplied by 1.

B. Language proficiency criteria

  • Foreign languages: level of language proficiency as defined by the Council of Europe. More specifically:
    • Level B1: 10 credits
    • Level B2: 15 credits
    • Level C1: 20 credits
    • Level C2: 25 credits

         Only certificates recognised by the Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection (ASEP) are accepted.

C. Motivation

  • Motives for participation in the programme (motivation letter) and justification - maximum 5 credits.
  • Interview (maximum 5 credits). The interview will be conducted by the Erasmus Committee of the Department of Tourism.

The total credits for the ranking are derived from the sum of A+B+C.

B. Postgraduate students

Postgraduate students choose workload in ECTS credits that corresponds to their dissertation or part of it. Alternatively, workload in ECTS credits corresponding to courses of the Master's Degree Programme they attend may be selected. For any of the above two options, a relevant certificate should be issued upon the initial completion of LA by the Director of the Postgraduate Studies Program. The Director's certificate must state that the student's transfer abroad under the Erasmus programme is approved and that the programme to be followed by the candidate will be part of the postgraduate programme (with the exact number of ECTS credits) and will count to the total time of his/her studies. The selection of candidates is based on their ranking of admission to the Postgraduate Program. The knowledge of foreign languages provides the same credits as those provided in the mobility of undergraduate students.

Therefore, the criteria apply as follows:

B1. Performance criteria

  • Total credits/score of admission assessment

Β2. B. Language proficiency criteria

  • Foreign languages: level of language proficiency as defined by the Council of Europe (only certificates recognised by the Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection (ASEP) are accepted). More specifically:
    • Level B1: 10 credits
    • Level B2: 15 credits
    • Level C1: 20 credits
    • Level C2: 25 credits

The total credits for the ranking are derived from the sum of B1+B2

C. PhD Candidates

  • PhD candidates of the Department have the opportunity to go abroad under Erasmus programme in order to carry out part of their research work.
  • It is necessary that the PhD Candidate submits a certificate by the supervising Professor, which will state the subject of the thesis and the approval of the Supervisory Committee for the mobility of the PhD candidate abroad within the framework of the Program. It shall be stated in the Supervisor's Certificate that the program to be followed by the PhD candidate will be part of his/her research work (without ECTS credits) for the completion of the doctoral thesis and will be counted to the total time of his/her studies.
  • The last evaluation report on the progress of the PhD candidate submitted by the three-member PhD Thesis Supervisory Committee is taken into account for the selection of the candidates.
  • In case there are more candidates for a particular host institution, priority will be given to the candidate who have made more progress in his/her research, has not exceeded three years since the start of the PhD research, and has submitted his/her annual reports regularly.
  • The evaluation is carried out by the ERASMUS Committee of the Department of Tourism.
