HOW TO APPLY FOR ERASMUS+ MOBILITY
About the Erasmus+ programme
As part of the Erasmus + programme, all SAN students, not only these with the highest marks, have the opportunity to go for studies or for an internship.
ERASMUS + STUDIES
Students who decide to go for STUDIES receive scholarships from 400-500 Euros per month which are tax-free. For example, a student going to Denmark for 5 months to study will receive approx. 2500 Euro for costs of living during studies at a partner university. Remember- it's always good to have additional money as well.
We strive to ensure that every student has the opportunity to go at least once during their studies. Each student has a total of 12 months of so-called "mobility capital" in first cycle studies (BACHELOR), and 12 months in the second degree studies (MASTER).
The student can spend this time by completing a part of the study program at a partner university abroad, and / or perform the internship.
The Erasmus period study lasts from 1 to 2 semesters, during which the students participate in the classes, collect materials for the written Bachelor's and Master's theses, meet new friends, etc. They improve their knowledge of the language, gain invaluable international experience and establish contacts both of a personal nature and related to their academic interests.

HOW TO START THE PREPARATIONS FOR ERASMUS INTERNSHIP
- When you decide to leave, it is a good idea to inform the Erasmus + Coordinator about your decision to inquire about funding availability or future funding by the University. If you would like to leave at an early stage, the university may report a higher funding requirement to the Erasmus National Agency.

You must also meet with the department coordinator in his department and find out what percentage of required internship can be confirmed as the internship performed abroad (?). You also need to find out which part of this internship (which has to be always consistent with your major) abroad will cover some or all of the compulsory internship you need to perform. Working on the merit of the exercise program together with the department's practice coordinator, in developing the Practical Education Agreement, will fully appreciate the achievement of mandatory practice.(?)
- After showing the signed exercise program, we will move on to the next stages of your travel preparation, ie finding accommodation, execution of OLS test, signing the financial agreement, transferring the scholarship, your departure and return details, presentation of the Certificate, completion of the OLS test, recognition of the University's internship and an entry in the Diploma Supplement.
