The guide provides complex information for mobility learners, as well as useful information regarding all three stages (preparation, implementation and follow up), but it is recommended that the guide is read / followed as early as the training stage, for a proper organization and an overall accurate picture of mobility.
1. Strengths
- The guide comprises useful information for incoming mobility learners.
- It is written in English (a great strong point, especially since it addresses potential international students / staff.)
- Mobility learners have access to student organizations, sorted based on the desired faculty’s profile. These organizations can be a good starting point in identifying / joining a social circle.
- In the guide you will find information about legal days off, the national scoring system, the organization of the institution and the contact person at the Erasmus mobility office.
- You can find useful information about the steps necessary for applying for an Erasmus mobility, required documents, visa, medical insurance and language requirements.
- Useful information about accommodation options and cost of living can be found in the guide - these details are of major importance, especially in mobilites longer than 1-2 weeks.
- Orientation days are organized for mobility learners
- The formalities for obtaining the right of residence are specified, both for EU / EEA Member countries and for non EU / EEA countries.
- Mobility learners can find, at the end of the guide, related information and a to-do list that they must tick, to make sure they did not forget anything before returning to their home country ( on the list are the following: working transcript of records, transcript of records, student ID, certificate of attendance, Hall of residence, library)

2. Weaknesses
- An updated version is not available on the institution's website, this is for the academic year 2012.
- The method of dissemination of the experience of mobility is not specified in this procedure: how information / cognitive acquisitions (and not only) reach colleagues who have not had the chance to participate in the mobility (considering that the number of those who benefit from such an experience is quite small, this component is crucial).
- Online registering for orientation days is not available
- The information specific to the implementation phase is more concerned with the social aspects of mobility (cultural events, music festivals, displays, museums), but the presence of a monitoring tool is not specified

The document discussed has potential for transferability, and can be used as a model in preparing the mobility; the model can be taken and adapted to institutional needs.
