4. How am I going to attend classes starting at 8.30 a.m. online? Will time difference be considered?

You need to adjust your schedule according to host university class hours; the important point is to create a platform where you take courses together with host university students.

6. How are EELISA Joint Catalogue Courses different from Erasmus? 

Erasmus exchange activities may require additional financing and consequently they may not be preferred by students. As all the catalogue courses are planned to be conducted in hybrid mode, they are considered as low-cost exchange activities for students. Additionally, Erasmus students are subject to student adjustment procedures and the students select their courses accordingly. However, student adjustment is not considered preferential; courses are evaluated individually in EELISA.
