How to go abroad?

How long can a mobility last?

Students can spend between 3 and 12 months in a study mobility (including an internship / placement period, if planned). The same student can receive a grant for study or placement abroad for up to a maximum of 12 months for each study cycle: 

+ During the first study cycle (bachelor's degree or equivalent) ... 

+ During the second study cycle (master's degree or equivalent - EQF level 7) and 

+ During the third cycle of study as a doctoral candidate (doctoral level or EQF level 8) 


The duration of a placement for graduates is calculated up to a maximum of 12 months after the end of the university cycle in which they have a candidate.

What are the conditions?

Students must be enrolled in a form of higher education with studies leading to a university degree or other type of certification at tertiary level (including doctoral level).

Mobility can be carried out if there are inter-institutional agreements between the sending and the receiving institution. Both institutions must also hold an Erasmus University Charter.


What kind of preparatory activities are needed?

Before leaving, the Erasmus student will receive: 

+ A contract signed by the sending university and a student for the mobility period 

+ A study contract that regulates the study program to be assumed by the 3 parties: student, sending institution and receiving institution 

+ Erasmus student's letter establishing the student's rights and obligations related to his / her period of study abroad

After the mobility period:

+ The receiving institution must issue to the student the transcript confirming the completion of the study program as well as its results 

+ the sending institution must grant academic recognition to all activities completed during the mobility according to the study contract, by granting transferable credits (ECTS) or a equivalent system. The mobility period will also be included in the diploma supplement.

Will financial support be provided or will fees be charged?

Students can receive an Erasmus + grant to cover transport as well as subsistence costs during mobility. 

Erasmus students are exempt from paying tuition fees, enrollment, entrance exams in laboratories or in libraries and study areas, regardless of whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ grant.

How to apply?

Students will contact the International Relations Office of the referring institution. From here, they will be informed about study opportunities in another country as well as how to apply for an Erasmus + grant.
