Erasmus+ Learning Agreement

Students coming via the Erasmus+ program to NIH must complete the Online Learning Agreement (OLA), which is a part of the Erasmus Without Papers (EWP) project.

Normal service: Approx. 1 week

Summer holiday: Approx. 2 weeks

Christmas holiday (Dec 22 - Jan 2) : No OLAs will be processed

If your home university requires to have the Learning Agreement as a PDF/ paper version, download a PDF of the OLA after it has been signed by all parties and give to your home university.

Your university may use a different system than the Online Learning Agreement, but that is connected to the Erasmus Without Papers (EWP) project. You will then need to use that system, which is connected to the OLA.

How to prepare and approve your OLA

  • Prepare your OLA after you have been accepted as a student at NIH and received information regarding what courses you will take (late May or early June/ late October or early November).  
  • You fill out your OLA and sign it online
    • After your email is verified when you register, use the link above again to access your profile
    • Choose "Create new" to start the process of completing the OLA
  • Your home university will automatically receive a notification by e-mail to sign your OLA once you have signed it.
  • NIH will automatically receive a notification by e-mail to sign your OLA once your home university has signed it.
  • Once NIH has signed it, your OLA is complete.

Download the Erasmus+ App to track your OLA and other useful information.

It is important that the online learning agreement is correct and that it is amended should any changes be made to the course selection. This will speed up the recognition process upon your return and ensures that your studies will be transferred back.

Step 1: Student information

  • Academic year of the exchange: 2022/2023

Step 3: Receiving institution

  • Planned end of the mobility:
    • 22.12.2022 (fall semester)

Step 5: Commitment

Make sure that you sign your OLA. It is only when you have signed it that the coordinator at your home university will be able to sign it. The signature field works best on touch screen, but you can also sign your OLA using a regular computer and pointer/mouse. Your home university will then receive your OLA by email from the Erasmus Dashboard.

During mobility

It is also possible to adjust the OLA during the mobility period if your home university requires this. Sign in to the OLA system and fill out the section under New learning agreement with changes.

This section can only be filled out if your original OLA (Before the mobility) is complete and signed by you, your home university and NIH.
