  11. The grantee should arrive and leave the host university on dates as close as possible to those stated mentioned in the Invitation Letter provided by the host university, within a margin of up to seven days before arrival and after departure (e.g. if the dates of the grantee’s mobility are from June 15th to December 15th, the grantee should not arrive at the host university before June 9th and should have left by December 22nd).

  12. 4.  Tuition fees
  13. Students will continue paying their tuition and/or registration fees in their home university but the host university must apply a fee waiver policy. In order to avoid double imposition of fees, in those cases where the host requires the payment of the registration/tuition fees, the students must not be charged the same fees by the home university. Fees cannot be charged to post-doctorate mobility for research purposes.
