3. A Transcript of Records will be issued by the receiving institution no later than 5 weeks after the
assessment period has finished at the receiving HEI. [It should normally not exceed five weeks
according to the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education guidelines]
4. Termination of the agreement
This agreement will take effect in the 2014 academic year being valid for a period of 7 years, and will
be tacitly renewed for further identical periods.
The above mentioned parties agree to cooperate in the following activities under the terms and
conditions of the Erasmus+ Programme. Both parties agree to abide by the principles and conditions
set out in the Erasmus+ Guidelines for Applicants and – if the application is successful – the financial
agreement, and will work according to the principles of the Erasmus University Charter. Both parties
undertake to abide by the bilaterally agreed terms of this co-operation agreement and will endeavour
to carry out the agreement to the best of their abilities.
Either institution is free to terminate the present agreement. In order to do so, the institution wishing
to terminate the agreement must:
I. Notify the other institution in writing of its intention, by giving at least a 12 months’ notice, stating
the date on which it intends to make the termination effective. That is to say, a unilateral decision
to discontinue the exchanges notified to the other party by 1 September 20XX will only take effect
as of 1 September 20XX+1. In consequence, any students who have started their exchange
experience at either university at the date of termination may complete their stay. If an imbalance
exists in the number of terms/semesters where exchanges have taken place, the deficit institution
will be entitled to further exchanges until the imbalance is eliminated.
II. Termination of the agreement will not be penalised.
"Neither the European Commission nor the National Agencies can be held responsible in case of a
conflict."
