Reasons to apply?

  • International student life – Learn what it means to be a student in another European country. You will find that there are similar things to your ASE experience, but also many differences that will surprise you. The experience will give you a new perspective on your studies and will offer you the opportunity to experience other styles of teaching and learning.
  • More independence – The experience of studying and living in another country will be a challenge: you have to deal with new and unfamiliar situations, to manage your time and budget, to learn to adapt to a new culture. Moreover, you have more freedom in choosing the courses you want to study.
  • Powerful knowledge – Student life in a foreign country will give you an entirely different perspective than the one you acquire as a tourist. You will discover and understand what daily life means in the host country and you will learn to communicate with people from different cultures.
  • Personal and professional achievements – Such experiences are not always easy, but once you overcome the initial difficulties, you will discover that in addition to studies, you can travel, have fun, meet many interesting people and to grow as a person. Besides, it will make a great addition to your future professional profile.

Selection Guide

  • When does the mobility take place?

The selection for Erasmus+ studies is done one academic year before the mobility actually takes place. The departure will take place in the next academic year, as planned with your coordinators.

  • How many selections are there?

There are two selections, but the destinations greatly differ. The first selection starts around January and it contains the complete list with the next year’s destinations (duration: 1st/2nd semester or the whole academic year). The second selection starts around May and it is only for what destinations have remained after the first selection was completed (being also limited to the duration of the 2nd semester).

  • I am a student in my final year, can I apply for Erasmus+?

Yes, you can be an Erasmus student during the 1st year of your next level of study (1st year of Master or PhD), only as long as you will enroll and pass the admission at one of our university’s Master or PhD programs. Or, if you don’t plan to apply for a Master or PhD, you can apply for an Erasmus+ internship, but the application can be done only while you are still a student, even if you depart after you finish your studies. 

  • How long does the mobility last?

The minimum duration is 2 months for internships or 3 months to study mobility. You can benefit from 12 months of mobility in a university course or within one academic year or cumulate several periods of mobility.
