In order to be enrolled in the Erasmus+ programme for study purposes, students must have a student status at the time of enrolment, and be at least at the second year of studies in their basic study programmes.

Students can stay under an exchange programme for at least 3 months and at most of 12 months during one academic year.
A student enrolled in the Erasmus+ exchange programme can receive financial assistance in order to cover the costs of leaving in a foreign country. In the 2017/2018 academic year, the minimum monthly allowance amounted to € 370 for the countries with the lowest living expenses and € 520 for the countries with the highest living expenses. The amount of such scholarships depends on the home university and the country of exchange. The financial assistance is only valid for the duration of regular studies according to the academic calendar of a partner university.
