We kindly invite you to take part in the Erasmus+ competition for exchange studies abroad during the 2023/2024 academic year. You can choose to apply during the Autumn or Spring semester or the full academic year.
All BA, MA, and PhD students are welcome to apply. If you are interested, please fill in this application form before the 28th of February.
In order to submit an online application, please make sure you are using your VDA email account. Once you submit your application successfully, you should receive a confirmation upon successful submission. In case you do not get such confirmation, please contact the VDA International Office prior to the application deadline. Late applications will not be accepted.
You can choose the host university for your Erasmus+ exchange from the list of VDA partner universities (you can access the partner list only via your VDA account).
The selection will be done by the VDA Internationalisation Group.
The competition score (CS) is calculated by using the below formula:
CS = academic performance *0.7 + motivation *0.3.
The competition score is comprised of:
academic performance during the previous semester (grade * 0.7);
student’s motivation to study abroad (maximum score for 2 motivational questions – 10) (total grade*0.3);
students who are participating in the Erasmus+ programme for the first time under this study cycle will get additional 0.3 point to their score;
students who are participating in international student mentorship programmes will get additional 0.1 point to their final score.
All applicants are obliged to have the minimum B2 level in English (or another language of instruction of the host university).
Erasmus grant amount is allocated depending on the host country:
