Study abroad at foreign higher education institution

  • The study stay abroad can last 3 to 12 months in the period from June 1 to September 30 of the following year.
  • The stay must be realized on the basis of a bilateral agreement concluded between a home and a foreign host institution.
  • Students of all study programs and forms of study enrolled at SU SBA, who have completed at least the first semester of studies at the time of departure and completed the selection procedure successfully, can take part in a scholarship stay abroad. 
  • The student may not interrupt or terminate his / her studies before or during his / her stay abroad.
  • Studying abroad is fully recognized within the study program at the home institution - the student will receive credits for courses completed abroad.
  • The student does not pay any tuition fees, enrollment fees, exam fees neither entry fees to laboratories nor libraries at host foreign institutions.
  • The participant of a study stay abroad remains a student of SU SBA and all the rights and duties related to his / her status remain the same (including the duty of paying the tuition fee to the home institution).
  • The student will receive a scholarship from the home institution in the form of a lump sum per month differentiated according to the host country. The student can also go abroad as a zero-grant-student, i.e. without receiving a scholarship, but with all the other benefits (no tuition fees at the foreign host institution, recognition of studies, etc.) that the Erasmus+ program guarantees. Both options can also be combined (i.e. e.g. for a 6-month stay abroad 5 months scholarship + 1 month as a zero-grant-student).
  • The total amount of the scholarship is being calculated in accordance with the grant agreement.
  • Students with special needs or those coming from disadvantaged socio-economic environment have the opportunity to obtain an extra scholarship, which they must apply for according to the instructions of the Institutional Coordinator of the Erasmus+ program.
  • The student must keep and submit necessary documentation associated with his / her study stay abroad.
  • The student is obliged to carry out a study stay within the term agreed in the grant agreement. Early return may lead to returning part of the awarded scholarship.
  • The right to an additional extension of the length of stay abroad does not arise automatically. A request can be submitted to the Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator, who will decide on the extension.
  • Other useful information about the Erasmus+ program can be found on the website of Erasmus Student Network or at the official Erasmus+ program website.
