Selection of students for ERASMUS+ study stays - HOW IT WORKS STEP BY STEP?  

  • search on the universities which you are interested in, from our PARTNERS LIST (Excel sheet at the bottom of the page) and check what classes/courses they offer and how well they would  reinforce your degree
  • choose your TOP 2 universities and apply for ERASMUS+ mobility by the deadline at Department of International Relations, usualy till the end of each year
  • take part on our "selection interview" in English /or other study language/  usualy in the middle of January - cancelled for this time
  • once you were recommended after interview, you will be nominated by e mail to apply for partner university, usualy by the end of March

We kindly ask  ERASMUS + potencial applicants  not to submit applications if:

- they can not study at EF succesfully because ERASMUS + is an opportunity for those "ambitious and most dilligent".
- also do not plan your  mobility if you have any doubts about your language knowledge, traveling alone, handling abroad, financial backing to co-finance your stay ...
- or if you have any health, personal or family issues

Afeter summbitting your Application steps:

  1. We send a list of applied students to Rectorate, based on this we will wait for the budget for your Faculty.
  2. The budget is normally confirmedy during May-June.
  3. In the meantime we  send  so called Nomination e mails to the partner Universities = only to the partner which you have chosen as your No-1 choice in your Application form.
  4. For applications for WS 2021/22 we send this e mail usually at the end of March and with  this e mail we inform the partner that you are interested to study within ERASMUS+ . For applications for SS 2021/22 we do this nomination at the end of September.
  5. After NOMINATION e mail you will probably receive instructions from partner university what to send them and what are the deadlines. You need to follow their instructions.
  6. After the nomination e  mail we send you further instructions in which we  explain what kind of documents we need from you.
  7. The rest of detailed information for ERASMUS + before departure to your destination country is always available for students at https://www.ef.umb.sk/index.asp?uid=540 and English version at https://www.ef.umb.sk/index_e.asp?uid=1575
  8. At the beginning of the application procedure the partner university usually requires following, but it can vary too: 


  • LA document with selected courses based on their Offer of courses
  • Various Application cdocuments, sometimes on line sometimes via e mail scanned, very seldom originals
  • Health Insurance (HI Card + Commercial Insurance in case of non-EU students)

+ If someone of you will need to change partner University, you can do it but inform me about it till the March 15th  every year.

+ if you want to cancel your interest, inform me about it as soon as you are sure about it!

+ if you will not be a student of EF UMB for the AY 2021/22, you do not have the right to do ERASMUS+ any more.
