Students who initiate agreements with additional partner universities will be given priority if demand for places exceeds the number partner institutions are ready to accept.

Recently, students through their own contacts have been able to establish agreements

covering their own visits with Freie Universität Berlin and the University of Gothenburg.

 

Applicants will be selected by GSSR (you need also to be accepted by the host university-check their web pages for deadlines) on the basis of:

  • Relevant linguistic ability
  • Description of planned studies
  • The grades you have already obtained for courses at GSSR
  • The relevance of the proposed visit to your studies at GSSR (you should supply written confirmation from your supervisor).

Selection will be made by the Director of the GSSR and a representative of the Samorząd. Any appeals arising from the selection procedure will be decided by the Director of the Institute.

Deadlines

Calls for application with relevant deadlines will be sent to all students using your School e-mail addresses.

Information meetings

Information meetings will be held for those interested in applying for the programme, and later for students selected for participation. Check your school e-mail for details.

Recognition of studies

Participation in the Erasmus programme guarantees full recognition of your studies abroad (using ECTS).

Level of grants

Erasmus mobility grants make a contribution to the costs of a stay at a partner university. Stays can be from a minimum stay of 3 months up to one academic year. The National agencies set grant levels for individual countries. In 2017/18 These have been set for students from Polish institutions as follows:

Group 1: Denmark, Finland, Iceland,  Ireland,  Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, UK

€500 per month

Group 2:  Austria, Belgium,  Cyprus, France,  Germany, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain

€450 per month

Group 3: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, FYROM, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey

€ 400 per month

Additional funds are available for disabled students and students receiving social stipends.

Zero grants

Students may also participate in mobility and enjoy the full benefits of mobility whilst receiving zero funding from the scheme . If you plan zero grant mobility, please make this clear when applying.

 

Award of funding

Permissible levels of grants must be taken into account when students are accepted for funded mobility. If insufficient funds are awarded to GSSR to satisfy all applicants, selection of applicants will take place using a ranking list based on the criteria above. Funds will be distributed among those selected to ensure that students are funded for  periods of equal duration.

Please note too that amounts may be adjusted during the year if extra funds become available eg following the withdrawal of one or more students.
