Opportunities for STUDENTS to learn abroad

Study Mobility

How long can students go abroad?

Students can go abroad for 3 to 12 months (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned). The same student may receive grants for studying or being trained abroad totalling up to 12 months maximum per each cycle of study:

– During the first study cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) including the short-cycle (EQF levels 5 and 6)

– During the second study cycle (Master or equivalent – EQF level 7)

The duration of a traineeship by recent graduates counts towards the 12 months maximum of the cycle during which they apply for the traineeship.

What are the conditions?

Students must be registered in a higher education institution and enrolled in studies leading to a recognised degree or other recognised tertiary level qualification (up to and including the level of doctorate). The students who want to study abroad must be enrolled at least in the second year of higher education studies!

The mobility is carried out in the framework of prior “inter-institutional agreements” between the sending and receiving institutions, both of which must be holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (if located in a Programme country)

Will financial support be provided or fees charged?

Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad

Erasmus+ students – whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ EU grant – are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution

The payment of any national grant to outgoing students should be maintained during the study period abroad.

Traineeships

What are the conditions?
