START DATE: first day the student has been present at the receiving institution, for example, for the first course or for a welcoming event.
END DATE: the last day the student has been present at the receiving institution (the end of exams period, courses or mandatory sitting period) and not his actual date of departure.
ADVANCE PAYMENT: if and when funds will be available and ideally by the beginning of your exchange semester, you will receive an amount of money corresponding to 2 months (60 days).
