Financial Support

Students applying for the Erasmus+ scholarship may stay abroad for winter or summer semester of the next academic year. They receive a scholarship for the entire period of stay confirmed by the host university in an official document and according to the rates applicable in the given country.

Students may extend their stay at the partner university by another semester within one academic year, i.e. from winter semester only to the full academic year, but with no guarantee of receiving an Erasmus+ scholarship for the summer semester.

Mobility Capital:

  • Within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme students may realize their mobilities several times, for a total of 12 months at each level of study.
  • Mobilities for studies and traineeship add up, e.g., a student previously completed a 5-month stay for studies or traineeship during the bachelor degree studies, he/she can still stay abroad for a maximum of 7 months within the same cycle of studies. During the master degree  studies he/she can stay abroad again for  maximum of 12 months.
  • Scholarships realized earlier within the LLP-Erasmus and FSS program are included in the "mobility capital".
