The Erasmus+ ICM program allows students to study at universities in Erasmus+ partner countries—a broad selection of countries that are not in the regular Erasmus+ program. The list of participating universities changes every year depending the evaluation of Masaryk University's application for funding.
Candidates for study at these universities must first undergo a selection procedure at the Centre for International Cooperation, which will then send nominations to the partner universities. Nomination does not in and of itself, however, mean automatic acceptance. The student must also fulfil conditions set by the host university. Because of this, the selection procedure may take longer than those of other programs.

In general, the program is open to students at all levels of study at MU, but care must be taken to ensure what levels of study are offered at the university of interest.
The program is open to students who will have completed at least two semesters of work at MU by the time they leave.
Students who participate in the mobility program must remain active students of MU for the entire time they are abroad, either full-time or combined.
Students must be capable of study at their university of choice (note the language of instruction and the subjects on offer). The host school may have other requirements that selected students must fulfil.
Within the programme students cannot study at a university in their country of citizenship —for example, a student with Israeli citizenship cannot apply to study in Israel under Erasmus+ ICM.
- A grant of €650/month
- In addition to the contribution for accommodation, there is a travel allowance whose amount depends on the distance between the home institution and the institution abroad (the maximum being the actual distance).
Grant is in three instalments via the MU Information System on the basis of complete documentation as follows:
- 50% of the amount is paid upon arrival at the host institution. The transaction takes place on the basis of a signed Confirmation of Arrival at the host institution, with the relevant boarding pass uploaded to the appropriate section of the application.
- 30% of the amount is paid at the midpoint of the mobility program on the basis of completed documentation (such as the Learning Agreement, including any confirmed changes)
- 20% of the total amount is paid on the basis of a completed electronic report, the so-called EU Survey.
An application for up to two universities may be submitted only in electronic form using the special ISOIS interface.
The application includes the following documents (please save all documents in PDF format):
- The application form: see the online application (choose one or two universities)
- Transcript of Records in English from your studies at MU (issued by the Registrar's Office of your home faculty), or a diploma supplement showing the level achieved either at MU or outside the university.
- The Learning Agreement (a sample document is available for download as part of the online application) with the signatures of the student and the home university subject coordinator (the remaining signatures will be required only if the application is positively evaluated)
- A letter of motivation in English: the letter should always be written in English, even if study will be in another language. Each university should receive an independent letter.
Evidence of knowledge of the language of instruction. Any documenting of knowledge of the given language will do, but it is an advantage to have a language certificate, or for those applying to non-English-speaking countries previous taking of CIC language test from English.
For each university applied to, doctoral students have to provide:
- Preacceptance letter (from the host university)
- Research plan
Before they depart, students have to arrange a Learning Agreement. For each semester of study, the student must obtain 20 ECTS or their equivalent at the host university.
Before leaving, the student has to register the study stay in the IS MU (in the Personal Administration – Personal Data section) and upload the signed Learning Agreement (signed at least by an authorized MU representative) to the IS MU system.
Before leaving, students must come in person to the Centre to sign the following documents:
- Grant agreement
- Application for Grant
Working together with the Centre and the coordinator at the host university, the student must arrange a visa, flight tickets, accommodation, and other essentials.
After arriving at the host institution, the student completes the selection of subjects for study, recording any modifications in the Changes to Learning Agreement form, which then has to be signed once again by the host institution, the student, and the authorized representative of MU.
For each semester of study, the student must obtain 20 ECTS or their equivalent at the host university.
Before the end of their mobility program, the student has to fill out the EU Survey, which will be e-mailed automatically by the European Commission.
The student has to:
- submit a copy of the Confirmation of Arrival and Departure to the Centre within 10 days of the end of the study stay
- within 5 weeks of the publication of exam results, submit a copy of the transcript from the foreign university of subjects taken and credit obtained (the Transcript of Records)
- within 30 days of receiving an email request to do so, fill out the final report (the EU Survey) online
The student may either submit the documents in person or send copies of them by e-mail.
Recognition of foreign studies:
recognition of subjects and credit is completely at the discretion of the individual faculty/department/institute or subject coordinator
- information on the recognition procedure for credits and subjects may be gotten from the foreign studies department/registrar of your faculty
- the rules governing recognition may be found here.
Please fill out all documentation on a computer.
