Most institutions accept the university language test as proof of English proficiency. However, some universities accept only TOEFL, CAE and IELTS.

You need to register and take TOEFL, CAE or IELTS tests during or after the exchange selection individually.
Important! For those applying for Erasmus+ traineeship, it is not mandatory to submit English language proficiency certificate.
The candidate students shall be informed about the selection results individually within 5 working days after the selection meeting.
Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover travel and subsistence expenses incurred in connection with their study period abroad. The amounts of the grant are defined by the National Agency. You can find more information about the exact amounts here.
The minimum amount of months that Erasmus+ scholarship can be awarded is three months.
The final amount for the mobility period is determined by multiplying the number of months of the mobility with the rate applicable per month for the receiving country. In the case of incomplete months, the financial support is calculated by multiplying the number of days in the incomplete month with 1/30 of the unit cost per month.
Erasmus+ scholarship is transferred to student‘s personal bank account. 90% of the determined amount is transferred before departure to the partner university, the rest of the scholarship is paid after returning and submitting all the required documents.
Students with special needs can request additional grant support. In preparation of your Erasmus+ mobility, you should indicate your needs and foreseen extra costs linked to your physical, mental or health-related conditions, in order to apply for the Erasmus+ special needs support grant. Areas that could be eligible for support linked to your Erasmus+ mobility, according to individual needs, include but are not limited to: adapted accommodation, travel assistance, medical attendance, supportive equipment, adaption of learning material, an accompanying person, etc.
