The grant is for students who have completed at least one year of their studies and is paid by student home university. The foreign university must have an bilateral agreement with FI MU, check that at international office of your home university. If you were selected by your home university for Erasmus studies, please look at the webpage of our Office for International Cooperation for more information about the application process.

This initiative enables non-European students to undertake study, research stays and internships at selected European universities. Students from Western Balkans, South and East Mediterranean countries, Africa, Asia, North America or Latin America can spend either one or two semesters at Masaryk University.
