STUDENT EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES
Study periods abroad allow you to obtain a different cultural experience and add an international dimension to your curriculum vitae. Support and induction programs are available for all students going out on exchange and for students coming to study here with us.
MOBILITY FOR INTERNSHIP
Furthermore, Erasmus+ enables students and graduates to undertake internship in a company or organization abroad, with full recognition for the period of their work and lasting mobility of 2-12 months.
Students can use this feature from the first year of study, and graduates must complete mobility no later than one year after graduation.
Students who move to study at partner European Tertiary Education Institutions or organizations/ companies for academic or internship purposes via Erasmus+ programs, receive an amount as a travel allowance and a monthly subsidy depending on the cost of living in the host country.
