Erasmus+ Europe

Erasmus+ is a European Union programme focused on higher education and vocational education at the tertiary level. The programme supports the foreign mobility of higher education students, teachers and employees of higher education institutions, as well as trainers from various enterprises and other entities.

The aim of the programme is to support relations and cooperation between higher education institutions within the European space, to improve the level of transparency and compatibility of higher education qualifications in Europe, to improve language teaching, to provide information on educational systems in various countries and to give education a European dimension.

A basic condition for the inclusion of a higher education institution into the Erasmus+ programme is the awarding of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) from the European Commission. Masaryk University has been awarded an ECHE for the period 2014–2020.

  • The ERASMUS ID code of Masaryk University is CZ BRNO05

Study stays can take place only in countries included in the Erasmus+ programme (further only programme countries). These are the following countries:

  • the twenty-eight 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, Sweden and the United Kingdom)
  • the countries of the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein)
  • also Turkey and Macedonia.
  • Mobility to Switzerland is not possible via the Erasmus+ programme.

Participation Conditions

  • A study stay can take place only on the basis of a valid inter-institutional agreement between the relevant faculty/department of MU and the foreign institution. The length of the study stay is a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 12 months.
  • The student is selected in a duly announced call for applications and at the time of departure must be enrolled at least in the second year of bachelor’s or five-year master’s studies in full-time, combined or distance forms of study.
  • The student is enrolled on an accredited bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral study programme at a higher education institution that is part of the Erasmus+ programme.
  • Throughout the period of their stay the student must be normally enrolled in studies at the faculty/department through which the stay was organised, and the studies may not be ended or interrupted.
  • A condition for the successful completion of the foreign study stay is the gaining of at least 20 ECTS credits for a semester of study at the host institution.
  • A student wishing to travel on a study stay to his/her country of origin will have the lowest priority in the call for applications and will be given the status of a zero grant student, i.e. without the right to provision of financial support.
  • The student may not undertake the study stay in their country of residence.
  • Each applicant must fulfil the Qualification Conditions of the Erasmus+ Programme (which you can find in the Documents section)
  • This programme is not intended for students who are studying at MU with financial support from the Erasmus+ programme.

 

Repeated Trips on Study Stays within the Erasmus+ Programme

A student can undertake a study stay or internship abroad with a total length of a maximum of 12 months per study cycle (bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral). Thus it is possible to complete a 6-month study stay and a 6-month internship, or for example a whole 12-month study stay, always however there is a 12-month limit in one study cycle.

For multi-annual (e.g. five-year) master’s programmes the maximum subsidy for a study stay/internship is for 24 months. Months completed under the preceding Lifelong Learning Programme/Erasmus in the same study cycle are counted into this period.

While repeated study stays by students as part of the Erasmus+ programme are possible, given the limited funds allocated for this activity by the European Commission they can be assessed on the basis of preferences announced in the call for applications, which are fully within the competence of individual faculties/departments.
