Erasmus+ exchange students coming to UiA must use the Online Learning Agreement (OLA).
How to prepare and approve your OLA
Prepare your OLA after you have been accepted as a student at UiA and we have published the courses you get admitted to on Søknadsweb (by 1 June for Autumn semester and 1 November for Spring semester).
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.
Processing time of your OLA
Approximately 2 weeks
Summer holiday (1 July - 31 July)
No OLAs will be processed
Christmas holiday (19 December - 2 January)
No OLAs will be processed
You must complete your Online Learning Agreement (OLA) after you have been accepted as a student at UiA and we have published the courses you have been admitted to your ApplicationWeb. All Erasmus+ exchange students coming to UiA must use OLA.
If your home university requires to have the Learning Agreement as a PDF/in paper version, you can download a PDF of the OLA after it has been signed by all parties and give to your home university.
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 chose Edit. You can delete courses you will not be attending and add new courses. Once you have made the changes to OLA you will need to sign again and the OLA will be sent to the Responsible Person at Sending Institution (your home univeristy) for approval. Once approved by your home university, it will be sent to Responsible Person at Receiving Institution.
All Erasmus students must use the Online Learning Agreement (OLA) system
All incoming and outgoing Erasmus students at UiA, must use the OLA system. We will no longer sign paper versions of the Learning Agreement.
We will not sign OLAs until the students have received their Acceptance Letter from UiA.
The student starts the process by creating a learning agreement in the OLA system and signing it online. Be sure to provide your students with the correct name and email for the responsible person at your institution (responsible for signing the Learning Agreement).
Learn more about the OLA
We consider the OLA as a major step forward towards a paperless Erasmus. More than 700 universities are registered users of the OLA tool and 22 000 OLAs have been downloaded. Our experience so far is that both students and university coordinators consider the OLA an easy and more efficient way of signing the Learning Agreement.
If you have your own electronic system for Learning Agreements, you can contact email@example.com to find out how to connect your system to this tool.
