The Erasmus+ Programme is the new European student exchange programme which offers university students a possibility of studying or working abroad in another European country for a period of at least 3 months and a maximum of 12 months for each cycle of study (undergraduate courses, postgraduate master’s degree courses and PhD, specialization courses). Each student receives a grant which partly covers the costs of the stay abroad. Students going on exchange under the ERASMUS+ programme do not pay any university fees in the host university.
Students in disadvantaged economic situations as well as students with disabilities will receive additional contributions.
When you are going abroad through the new Erasmus+ programme, you are eligible to receive an Erasmus grant to assist you with the additional expenditure that you have when living abroad. The amount of the grant is different for studies and traineeships and depends on the destination country.
One of the basic rights each exchange student has is the home university’s full recognition of courses passed successfully abroad. Before leaving the home university, the participating student signs the Learning Agreement – a document that describes the programme of studies followed in the host university. At the end of the stay, the host university should provide the student with a document called Transcript of Records which confirms the completed study programme and the results.
Every year the Faculty publishes a competition notice about Erasmus+.
The Erasmus+ programme of the Faculty concerns two areas: Medicine and Health Professions  - go to page and the Psychology, Pedagogy and Social Work Area - go to page.
