In order for the mobilities to take place, a HEI in a Programme Country must sign an Inter-institutional Agreement with a HEI in a Partner Country. Under this Agreement, it can host students, doctoral candidates or staff from the Partner Country HEI, and can also send students, doctoral candidates or staff to the Partner-Country HEI. In the Agreement, the sending and receiving Institutions agree on the range of courses open to visiting students and on the options for staff mobility. These Agreements make sure that the sending Institution will recognize the credits gained by its students for successfully completed activities abroad, which will contribute to the student's degree once they return. Programme Country HEIs require an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education to apply and take part; by signing the Inter-institutional Agreement, Partner Country HEIs agree to adhere to these principles.

The sending institution is responsible for selecting participants and providing them with all necessary support including pre-departure preparation, monitoring during mobility, and formally recognizing the mobility period. The receiving institution offers participants a study programme, or a programme of staff training or teaching activities at their institution. The Inter-institutional Agreement details the obligations of each institution.

The selection criteria for participants are defined by their sending higher education institution, in agreement with the receiving institution. The first criterion should be academic merit, but with equivalent academic level, preference should be assigned to students from less advantaged socio-economic backgrounds.

Information on the mobility opportunities available and the selection procedure should be made public. The selection of participants, as well as the procedure for awarding them a grant, must be fair, transparent and documented and should be made available to all parties involved in the selection process.
