FROM PLANNING TO FINISHING MOBILITY

Planning your mobility semester (courses, projects, learning contract, learning agreement)

Projects
For info on mobility projects/topics at University of Ljubljana see mobility projects/topics.

If students encounter problems regarding projects and supervision, they can turn to our research projects coordinator, Anka Slana Ozimič, or to the local coordinator Toma Strle.

Courses (special topic of interest / elective courses)
- Courses carried out specifically for the MEi:CogSci students
Two to three special topic of interest / elective courses are offered specifically for the MEi:CogSci mobility students each year. These courses are presented at the welcome meeting and students then have a couple of days time to write to the teacher to express their attendance decision (otherwise, no additional application procedures are required). The schedule of these courses is known at the end of September (see: Schedule of MEi:CogSci courses and contacts of teachers).
- Courses in English offered by the University of Ljubljana for exchange students
University of Ljubljana list of courses in English for exchange students can be found at University of Ljubljana list of courses. Students should inquire about the possibility of attending these courses at the international offices of the respective faculties (the number of places might be limited so students should not wait until the last moment). If it is possible to attend a course, students should apply at the international office of the respective faculty, CC the international office of Faculty of Education (MEi:CogSci students' Erasmus+ coordinator at the University of Ljubljana), where students should request their enrolment data to be sent to the faculty where they wish to attend the course.

Erasmus+ Learning Agreement
In the Erasmus+ learning agreement (note this is not the MEi:CogSci learning contract) students state the following official third semester courses of the cognitive science programme at University of Ljubljana (they will also be stated on the transcript of records students obtain at the end of semester):
- Trends in Cognitive Science (10 ECTS)
[lecture, seminar, journal club]
- Interdisciplinary approach to a cognitive phenomenon 1 (10 ECTS) 
[cognitive science courses and/or electives and/or research project, depending on how students structure their 3rd semester curriculum].
- Interdisciplinary approach to a cognitive phenomenon 2 (10 ECTS)
[research project]

The content of these courses will be specified in more detail in the MEi:CogSci learning contract.

In case of extending mobility, state changes in the same learning agreement.

MEi:CogSci learning contract
- In the learning contract, students define the structure of their mobility semester (courses and project work).
- Students are required to submit an e-version of the semester contract (part 2 of the learning contract) to the local coordinator (Toma Strle; toma.strle@pef.uni-lj.si) at the latest until the 24th of October.
- Students are required to submit the final e-version of the learning contract to the local and home coordinators and CC project supervisor (see also instructions in the learning contract) at the latest (!) until the 31st of October. The final version must, among other obligatory elements, include a project plan as structured in part 3 of the learning contract and as agreed upon with a supervisor.
- The supervisor has to confirm that she/he agrees with student's project plan via email which students have to, when submitting the learning contract, forward to the home and host university coordinators.
- You can find the learning contract form here.
- If students have further questions they are welcome to consultation hrs of Toma Strle.

Finishing your mobility

In order to get the learning contract signed by the local coordinator at host university, students need the following:
a) Project (S-I-PJ Special Topic of Interest (Project) Module):
- Project report (description and results) should be included in the learning contract.
- Stamp, signature and grade of project supervisor.

b) Courses (S-I Special Topic of Interest Module and W-D-C Elective Module):
- For courses, not done specifically for the MEi:CogSci students, students need a confirmation that they passed them. Students must provide a transcript of records from the respective faculty or fill in this form (for each course holder a separate document).

c) Trends in cognitive science (S-I-CS New Trends in Cognitive Science Module):
- Students do not need any additional documents besides the learning contract.

Students must fill in all the required data on the learning contract (including, for instance, host and home grades, if applicable) and arrange the signature of their supervisor and stamp of the respective institution (for project work) for themselves. Note that learning contracts with missing elements, information, etc. will not be processed.

Students then have two options.

Option 1: Students can send a scan (that should be of proper quality) of the learning contract with all the necessary elements (and additional documents, if required: see above) to the local coordinator (toma.strle@pef.uni-lj.si). If this option is chosen, student's project supervisor has to send a confirmation of the project grade to the local coordinator via e-mail. Alternatively, the learning contract can be sent to the local coordinator by the project supervisor.

The learning contract will be signed, stamped and, together with a transcript of records, sent to student's home institution via email (CC student) (note that this might take a couple of days) by the Office for international cooperation at Faculty of Education.

Option 2: Students can, alternatively, decide to bring the original learning contract with all the necessary elements (and additional documents, if required: see above) to consultation hrs of Toma Strle in order to obtain the signature of the local coordinator at the host university. After they obtain the signature, Igor Repac at the Office for international cooperation at the Faculty of Education (room no. 034; see link for office hrs) will stamp the learning contract and issue a transcript of records (note that this might take a couple of days).

Students can then pick up the documents (learning contract and transcript of records) at the Faculty of Education Office for International Cooperation (room 034). In case students are not in Slovenia anymore (and will hence not be able to pick up the documents), they have to provide Igor Repac (international@pef.uni-lj.si) with an address and request the respective documents (learning contract, transcript of records) to be sent to the provided address.

Students should finish their mobility semeter till the end of march (i.e., submit the final version fo their learning contract). After the end of the academic year, in which students did their mobility (end Sept.), students cannot get a transcript of records anymore.
