Partner universities are on 3 separate sheets in the table: Erasmus+ EU partners, partner universities outside EU and partner universities in Switzerland.
We have funding for exchange studies in EU partner institutions. Switzerland offers scholarship for incoming students. Outside EU scholarships depend on the project result* – EKA is applying for funding this spring and the results will be announced in the beginning of June.
*Currently we have 2 grants to offer for exchange studies in Israel.
You may sort the partners list according to your faculty and study level. Please turn to you department to receive suggestions on which universities to select.
NB! Due to the COVID-19 our partner universities may have set restrictions for accepting new incoming exchange students or even cancelled it. For finding out the exact requirements set by your selected university, please check the information in section „Erasmus+“ or „incoming exchange“ on their website.
Erasmus + mobility: language preparation
Online language test is compulsory before mobility, unless your exchange studies or traineeship is carried out in your native language. The second test, after mobility, is voluntary.
There might be a possibility to get a voucher for online language course. This is in the case when student’s language is below the level requested by the host institution.
The language test result does not affect your possibilities of getting accepted by the partner school (the test will be taken after you have been accepted by the host institution).
