Erasmus+ for studies

(grants for a semester or year abroad)

Dear students, we kindly ask you to first read the following below, as it takes only a few minutes and it contains all the important details.

For further clarifications, we will gladly receive your inquiries via email or you can visit us at our office (working hours and contact details at the end of this page).

Application criteria

Notice: Each year, there are two online selections for study mobilities. Both are done in the academic year before the mobility actually takes place. (click here to check the calendar of the selections).

  • First selection (February-March): you can apply for all types of mobilities (first semester, second semester or the whole year), according to the destinations offer published here right before the selection starts;
  • Second selection (June-July): you can only apply for a mobility in the second semester, according to the updated offer with the remaining places after the first selection.
  • Bachelor, Master, PhD* students from all faculties are eligible, but also each program is limited to certain options from the destinations offer;
  • students in their last year** are eligible if they upload the Declaration/pledge to apply to the next cycle for a program in ASE (click here to download the declaration);
  • ID-IFR students are not eligible.

*Notice for PhD students: we suggest you apply for Erasmus+ for placements as it provides more flexibility in regards to your doctoral research (click here to be redirected to placement opportunities).

**Notice for students in the last year: you can apply now and go in the mobility during the first year of your next cycle of studies (examples: 3rd year of Bachelor can apply for 1st year of Master / 2nd year of Master can apply for the 1st year of PhD). If the student is selected to go in an Erasmus mobility for the 1st year of the next cycle, this does not automatically mean that they are accepted to continue their studies in ASE. The student is required to also pass the admission for their next cycle of studies. If the student does not succed in being admitted to the next cycle of studies in ASE, then the planned mobility will simply be cancelled, meaning that there are no further obligations.

Notice: The minimum number of ECTS credits required for Bachelor and Master is 70% and for PhD students is 100%. The number is calculated for all previous years exams, including the exams from the last winter session of the ongoing year.

  • Bachelor students:
    • First year: min. 21 ECTS;
    • Second year: min. 63 ECTS;
    • Third year: min. 105 ECTS;
    • Additional third year: min. 126 ECTS.
  • Master students:
    • First year: min. 21 ECTS;
    • Second year: min. 63 ECTS;

  • PhD students: 100% ECTS required.

Application procedure

Application file:

  • Letter of intent, in the language of the same space, stating the reason for applying for an Erasmus+ for studies mobility (around one page);
