  2. At the time of departure, the student should be at least in the second year of first-cycle studies (undergraduate/engineering);
  3. During the scholarship period, the student must not be on dean's leave or any other form of leave;
  4. The student must possess proficiency in the foreign language in which the classes will be conducted at the host university, at a level determined by the respective foreign university.

  • application form [PL] [EN]

After completing the recruitment process, the Erasmus+ Qualification Committee will prepare a list of students qualified for the study mobility. Based on the Commission's protocol, all students participating in the recruitment process will be informed by e-mail about the recruitment results.The decision may be appealed against within 7 calendar days of receiving the information electronically.

5. Nomination and application to the partner university

Nomination is the official notification of the host university about the student's arrival. The nominations are made by the Internationa Office (KBU).

After nomination, the student is obliged to check on the website of the partner university or directly with the Erasmus program coordinator of the partner university all available information regarding the organization of the stay under the Erasmus Program (application procedure, application deadlines, program offer, accommodation, academic year schedule, etc.)

6. Preparation of the Online Learning Agreement (OLA) for Studies

OLA is an agreement between the student, the home university and the host (partner) university, specifying the program of classes that the student is to participate in at the partner university and the number of ECTS points that will be awarded for completing them. The agreement is the basis for recognizing the period of study completed at a foreign university. This document must be signed by all three parties before the student's departure.

The student agrees on the OLA together with the Dean of a given faculty and with the help of the Erasmus+ Coordinator

Polish citizens do not require visas when traveling to European Union and European Economic Area countries.

After confirming the changes, complete the DURING THE MOBILITY section, making appropriate changes by listing the deleted and added courses.
