PARTNER UNIVERSITIES LIST

The Coventry University is only possible for double diploma students.  

Despite the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU on January 31, 2020, due to the conclusion of an agreement on the continuation of the participation of British institutions/organizations in projects approved for implementation in the current phase of the Erasmus+ program, the students' exchange mobility is possible in accordance with the arrangements with British partners.

Recruitment interview

The recruitment interview is aimed at checking your language skills and comprehensibility in English.

You will be invited for the recruitment interview by Institutional Erasmus+ Coordinator via email.

During the interview you will be asked about:

  • Erasmus+ program (main idea of Erasmus exchange, basic Erasmus documents),
  • Partner universities choice (reason of your choice, deadlines, semester dates, partner university-LU corresponding courses),
  • Motivation (prove that you are the one to be chosen).

You can keep your own notes during the interview.

If at a partner university you want to study in a language other than English, appropriate for the chosen destination country, you should provide a language certificate of this language at confirming your language proficiency at least at B2 level.

Documents you must collect

Before the Mobility

  • Learning Agreement Before the Mobility,
  • Letter of Acceptance,
  • ID Document,
  • Insurance,
  • Bank Account Statement,
  • Tuition Payment Confirmation;

Signing the financial agreement is possible only after providing all the above-mentioned documents.

 

During the Mobility

  • Boarding pass, 
  • Certificate of Arrival,
  • Learning Agreement During the Mobility;

After reaching the place of destination, the student is obliged to submit a confirmation of travel to the country of mobility (boarding pass, bus ticket).

 

After the Mobility

  • Boarding pass,
  • Learning Agreement After the Mobility,
  • Confirmation Letter - on its basis, the final grant amount is calculated,
  • Transcript of Records,
  • Syllabuses.

After returning from mobility, the student is required to send a confirmation of travel to Poland/home country (boarding pass, bus ticket).

After completing the mobility, each student receives a link to fill in an individual beneficiary report (EU Survey) by e-mail. Completion of the report is obligatory and it is filled in on-line. The student is also obliged to take the language test on the OLS platform (2nd OLS Assessment), to which the link will be sent by e-mail.

Money issues

The students will be exempt from paying tuition at the partner university.

Received academic, sports and social grants and scholarships (with the exception of the housing scholarship) in LU will remain in force also in the period of studying abroad.

The Erasmus+ grant is awarded to cover the difference between living costs in Poland and abroad.

In order to receive a scholarship, it is necessary to sign a grant agreement between the student and the Lazarski University before starting the mobility.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the change in the terms of the grant payment, the grant will be transferred after the boarding pass is submitted.

In order to formally recognize the mobility, it is necessary to obtain a document confirming the duration of stay, which is a mandatory document that must be submitted to the International Programs Office after returning from mobility. This document contains the date of the student's arrival and departure from the foreign university. On its basis, the final grant amount is calculated.

Countries Erasmus grant per month
Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Lichtenstein. Luxemburg, Norway, Sweden, Great Britain €520
Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, France, Greece, Spain, Holland, Malta, Germany, Portugal, Italy €500
Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Turkey €450

The way how your Erasmus grant will be transferred to your bank account:

  • 80% of the overall amount of grant before your mobility start,
  • 20% of the overall amount of grant after your mobility finishes and submitting all required documents.

In order to avoid the excessive bank provisions it is recommended to have a Euro bank account in one of the Polish banks.

Insurance & Visa issues

Each student is obliged to insure himself before the mobility.

For the insurance, under the Erasmus+ Program rules the following areas must be covered: 

  • wherever relevant, travel insurance (including damage or loss of luggage),
  • third party liability (including, wherever appropriate, professional indemnity or insurance for responsibility),
  • accident and serious illness (including permanent or temporary incapacity),
  • death (including repatriation in case of projects carried out abroad).

In European Union countries the basic health insurance is guaranteed by the European Health Insurance Card issued by the National Health Fund (EHIC). Remember that the card covers only part of the services related to the treatment, but does not include consequences of accidents or civil liability. Detailed information can be found on the NFZ websites.

Some foreign universities require Erasmus + students to purchase compulsory insurance on site. To avoid double expenses, find out beforehand what formalities you will need to complete at the host university.

Do not forget about baggage insurance for the travel period.

If you need any help with visa issues please contact Student Help Desk Officer Mr. Łukasz Wieczorek at l.wieczorek@lazarski.edu.pl.
