The programme for Freemovers is intended for students who themselves arrange a study or work placement at a foreign university outside of any kind of Masaryk University exchange programme (e.g. Erasmus+), or outside any intergovernmental, interuniversity or interfaculty agreement.

Freemovers can choose from universities around the world, however their home faculty/department and the foreign university must consent. Each foreign university has its rules for the acceptance of Freemovers – some do not accept them at all, others require them to pay tuition fees and others openly welcome Freemovers.

Information on the experiences of students who have made use of the grants for Freemovers to study at a wide range of foreign universities can be found here here (only in Czech).
