Erasmus+ is an exchange programme of the European Union which makes it possible for Masaryk University students to study or carry out a traineeship at a wide range of European universities and institutions.
One of the novelties introduced in the new Erasmus+ programme is the possibility of realising short-term blended mobilities, which combine online activity with a short period of physical mobility. Short-term blended mobilities are open to students who meet the participation conditions of the Erasmus+ programme.
Study placements can take place only in countries included in the Erasmus+ programme (further only programme countries). These are the following countries:
- the twenty-seven member states of the European Union (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden)
- the countries of the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein)
- also Turkey, North Macedonia, Serbia, Switzerland
- placements in the United Kingdom: If the department/faculty has a valid inter-institutional agreement with a university in the UK, it is possible to go on an Erasmus+ study placement in the following years.
The ERASMUS ID code of Masaryk University is CZ BRNO05
The Erasmus+ study placement is open to a student who:
- is enrolled on an accredited bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral study programme at MU – full-time, combined or distance forms of studies
- is a citizen of one of the programme countries or is a citizen of another country but is studying in the programme country in an accredited programme of study, in any year
- throughout the period of their placement is enrolled in studies at the faculty/department through which the placement was organised, and the studies may not be ended or interrupted.
- has been selected in a duly announced selection procedure
- fulfils the Qualification Conditions of the Erasmus+ Programme (which you can find in the Documents section)
- wishes the study placement to be in their Country of Origin receives the lowest priority during the selection procedure and is given the status of a zero-grant student, i.e. is not entitled to receive the financial support
- is not travelling to their Country of Residence
- not studying in the Czech Republic under the Erasmus+ / Erasmus Mundus / Erasmus+ ICM programme
Participation conditions of BIP mobilities:
- A MU faculty/department can send its students on a short-term blended mobility only if this faculty/department is involved in implementing a specific Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) approved in advance by the national agency in the country of the institution coordinating this BIP. You can obtain further information about the BIP cooperation of your faculty/department from the departmental/faculty coordinator (which you can find in the Documents section).
- a study placement can take place only based on a valid inter-institutional agreement between the relevant faculty/department of MU and the host institution. The inter-institutional agreement can only be signed based on a pre-approved application for a grant for a BIP organisation submitted by the coordinating institution.
- The duration of the physical activity is between 5 and 30 days, while that of the virtual activity is not defined (however, it has to be realised).
- a condition for the successful completion of the short-term blended mobility is the gaining of at least 3 ECTS credits for mobility at the host institution.
Repeated departures for mobilities within the Erasmus+ programme:
- Short-term mobilities within the Erasmus+ programme are added up with study stays and traineeships through other Erasmus programmes (Erasmus+ Europe, Erasmus+ ICM, Erasmus Mundus) when calculating the maximum subsidy in one study cycle.
- Through Erasmus+ programmes the student can have study stays or traineeships abroad of a total length of a maximum of 12 months per study cycle (bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral).
- For long-cycle (for example five-year) master’s programmes the maximum subsidy for a study stay/traineeship is 24 months.
