Study mobility (SMS)
Long-term study mobility programmes for students are mobility opportunities, which are based on inter-institutional agreements, are carried out at specific target countries with a purpose of acquiring ECTS credit points and have a duration of minimum 2, maximum 12 months
Traineeship and traineeship for recent graduates
Traineeships are either curricular or elective mobility opportunities that are carried out at a foreign destination country and have a duration of minimum 2, maximum 12 months.
The submission of the documents, as well as the selection of the students have to be completed during the last academic year of the students when they still have an active student status. The mobility has to be fulfilled within one year following the pre-degree certificate stating that all course-units have been completed. In the case of a traineeship for recent graduates, the sending institution is exempted from the consequences of credit recognition.
Mobility for research
The mobility for research is a new element among the offered mobility opportunities, which aims to support the scientific development of students attending higher-education institutions.
It is possible to apply for a research mobility as Master and PhD students, as well as as students participating in the undivided programme. In the case of the undivided programme, the student must have completed minimum 7 semesters at the time of the application.
The following criteria have to be be met in the case of a research mobility as Master and PhD students, as well as as students participating in the undivided programme:
- In order to be able to apply for a research mobility, the student needs to submit a statement of support signed by the supervisor.
- After the mobility period, the student has to prepare a research report that contains the activities and results of the mobility. The report is approved by the student’s supervisor and the department/institute head.
- It is necessary to indicate the planned activities and planned results in the agreement signed for the mobility research.
- The student participating in a research mobility should also benefit from the opportunity of credit recognition, therefore the research mobility should be built up in a way that it could be linked to the student’s curriculum structure so that the mobility does not cause any delay in the academic progress.
