TOTAL SCHOLARSHIP AMOUNT

Standard semester mobility contracts are signed for a period of 5 months, and whole year mobility contracts - for 10 months.

The total amount of the scholarship can be calculated by multiplying the monthly rate of the selected country by the number of months included in the contract. The student may report a different duration of mobility in order to extend the financing period. Details in the Duration of mobility tab.

The due scholarship is calculated with one day accuracy based on the Confirmation of Stay document.
If the actual duration of mobility turns out to be shorter than the financing period specified in the contract, the amount corresponding to the number of missing days will be deducted from the total amount of the scholarship during the settlement process. If the Student has previously received a higher amount, International Students Office will issue a request for refund the difference. Details in the Settlement tab.

LOWER CHANCES ALLOWANCE

An increase in the monthly scholarship rate by EUR 250 for Erasmus+ Studies mobilities in the 2023/2024 academic year is available to persons who received a social scholarship in any semester of the 2022/2023 academic year and to persons with a certificate of disability.

The scholarship decision or disability certificate must be delivered to International Students Office - it may be a scan of the document sent by e-mail.

GREEN TRAVEL ALLOWANCE

Student can receive a one-off allowance for carrying out low-impact travel to and from exchnage destination. To obtain the allowance of EUR 50, you must prove that most of the trip in both ways was covered by low-emission means of transport, i.e. train, bus, car with more than 1 person in the car in the case of traveling to the same place, for the same purpose - the so-called carpooling. Travel by plane, solo car or by car in any other way than the so-called carpooling disqualifies from the allowance. 

Additional financing is also available for up to 2 days of one-way travel not covered by double financing (not coinciding with the dates on Confirmation of Stay).

The condition for receiving the allowance is to submit a Green Travel declaration after the end of mobility together with other documents required for settlement.

Travel by bus and train must be documented with tickets. If they are missing, you are not entitled to the Green Travel allowance.

The trip cannot take place longer than 30 days before the start and 30 days after the end of the mobility.

REGISTRATION AT THE HOST UNIVERSITY

After completing the recruitment for the Erasmus+ Studies Programme, International Students Office sends the nominations of studetns to the host universities. Then, host universities contact the Students directly by e-mail with further instructions on application process (approx. 2-3 months before the start of mobility). The Student is obliged to complete the application procedure independently. If he/she does not complete all formalities within the deadline set by the host university, the university has the right to refuse to admit the Student.

SIGNING THE FINANCIAL AGREEMENT

Before starting mobility, the Student is obliged to sign a financial contract at the International Students Offic, which specifies the duration of mobility and the amount of the scholarship. Information about the date of signing contracts is sent by e-mail approximately 2 months before the start of mobility. You must take your student ID with you to sign the contract.

In justified cases (e.g. absence from Poland), it is possible to sign the contract by correspondence. The contract is shared with the Student online to print in two copies, sign and send back to International Students Office via traditional mail.

Contracts for semester mobilities are usually prepared for a period of 5 months (150 days), and contracts for whole year mobilities - for 10 months (300 days). The student may report a different duration of mobility: shorter - to maintain the right to use the flexibility principle - or longer - to extend the financing period. Then the contract is prepared for the period declared by the Student, and if he has already signed the standard contract - it is annexed. Details in the Duration of Mobility tab.

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

The set of three required documents can be submit while signing the financial contract or delivered by e-mail at a later date. The only consequence of late submission of documents is a delay in the disbursement of the scholarship.

  • LEARNING AGREEMENT (Before the Mobility part) signed by the Student and Coordinators of both universities. In case of program differences, an annex to the LAS is also required. The document can be submitted in paper or online form (OLA/EWP LA) in USOSweb. People who complete OLA in USOSweb do not complete the paper version of the document.
    Changes to the LAS can be reported in the During the Mobility table signed by the Student and both Coordinators.
    OLA/EWP LA procedure in USOSweb:
    The Student applies to the Coordinator of his/her unit with a request to open OLA in USOSweb → The Coordinator must create it → The Student fills the form out  and accepts it → The Coordinator accepts it or reverts for correction and re-approval by the Student → after the Coordinator's approval, the system automatically sends OLA to the host university and then we wait for the final approval.
  • BANK DETAILS FORM completed on computer, printed and signed by handYou must provide only one account number and confirm that it is in EURO.
  • SMS STATEMENT - The student declares in it:
    • ​having an EKUZ card valid for the entire period of the Erasmus+ Study mobility stay (applies only to Polish citizens and people insured under the NFZ). Having an EKUZ card is optional for mobilities in countries that are not part of the EU and do not accept the EKUZ card (e.g. Turkey).
    • having additional insurance: medical costs (KL) and accidents (NNW), which is valid for the entire period of stay in the country where Erasmus+ mobility will be carried out
    • registration of the trip on the Odyseusz portal (applies only to Polish citizens).
    • taking an OLS language test on knowledge of the language in which the mobility will be carried out on the EU Academy OLS platform.
      Instructions on how to do it can be found here:
      EU Academy How to create an EU Login
      EU Academy OLS
    • familiarizing yourself with the Erasmus+ Student Card
    • used mobility capital of the Erasmus+ Program (you are entitled to 12 months on the first, second and third cycle of studies or 24 months on long-cycle master's studies)

​​The first installment of the scholarship will be paid approximately two weeks before the planned start of mobility - provided that the Student completes all formalities:

  • signing the financial agreement
  • submitting a complete set of documents
  • inform International Students Office about obtaining registration for the next academic year

The Erasmus+ Studies program allows you to travel for one semester (winter or summer) or for the entire academic year (depending on the conditions of cooperation with a specific university).

Contracts for semester mobilities are signed for a standard period of 5 months (150 days).
Contracts for whole year mobilities are signed for a standard period of 10 months (300 days).
The Student may report a different duration of mobility - then the contract is prepared for this period, and if the Student has already signed the standard contract, an annex is prepared.

In Erasmus+ Prgramme 1 month is understood as 30 days.

MOBILITY CAPITAL

The mobility capital is 12 months for first/second/third cycle studies and 24 months for long-cycle master's studies.
You cannot go for the Erasmus+ Program after using the Mobility Capital allocated for a given degree of study.

EXTENSION OF SEMESTER MOBILITY TO WHOLE YEAR MOBILITY

The desire to extend mobility must be reported to International Students Office no later than within 4 months from the start of mobility, by sending the Extension form signed by the Coordinators of both universities. Extension for another semester is possible only within one academic year, i.e. from the winter semester to the entire academic year.

EXTENSION OF THE FINANCING PERIOD

If the period of planned mobility is longer than the financing period indicated in the financial agreement, this fact must be reported to International Students Office no later than 30 days before the end of the financing period. After receiving this information, International Students Office will prepare an annex to the contract to extend the financing period.

THE PRINCIPLE OF FLEXIBILITY

The student has the right to retain the full scholarship for a period of up to 5 days shorter than that indicated in the contract. For example, in the case of a 5-month contract, you will retain the full scholarship corresponding to 150 days of mobility for the period of 145 to 150 days shown in the Confirmation of Stay.

SHORTENING THE MOBILITY PERIOD

It is possible to shorten the mobility granted for the whole year to one semester. For this purpose, a declaration of resignation from one semester must be submitted no later than 30 days before the start of the next semester at the host university.

RESIGNATION

In order to completely resign from the mobility granted, a declaration of resignation must be submitted.
Please inform us of your cancellation as soon as possible so that other students have a chance to take your place.

Settlement is due within 30 days after the end of mobility. The Student settles accounts independently in the International Students Office and in his/her unit by contacting the Faculty/Institute Coordinator. After submitting the complete set of required documents to International Students Office, payment of the last installment of the scholarship is ordered in the amount corresponding to the actual duration of mobility. The due scholarship is calculated with one day accuracy based on the Confirmation of Stay document. If the Student has previously received a higher amount, International Students Office will issue a request for refund the difference.

In the case of mobility for one semester, the scholarship is paid in 2 installments:

  • The first installment is paid before departure and constitutes 80% of the entire scholarship.
    In the case of a standard contract (5 months), its amount corresponds to 120 days of mobility.
  • The second installment is paid after submitting a complete set of documents for settlement and constitutes 20% of the entire scholarship.
    If the Confirmation of Stay shows a shorter actual duration of mobility than the financing period included in the contract, this installment will be reduced by the equivalent of the missing days. In case of stay shorter than 120 days, International Studens Office will issue a request for partial refund of the scholarship.

In the case of mobility for the whole academic year, the scholarship is paid in 3 installments:

  • The first installment is paid before departure and constitutes 50% of the entire scholarship.
    In the case of a standard contract (10 months), its amount corresponds to 150 days of mobility.
  • The second installment is paid before the beginning of the summer semester and constitutes 40% of the entire scholarship.
    Its amount corresponds to the next 120 days of mobility.
  • The third installment is paid after submitting all the documents for settlement and constitutes 10% of the entire scholarship.
    If the Confirmation of Stay shows a shorter actual duration of mobility than the financing period included in the contract, this installment will be reduced by the equivalent of the missing days. In case of stay shorter than 270 days, International Studens Office will issue a request for partial refund of the scholarship.

EXTENSION OF THE FINANCING PERIOD

If, during the mobility period, the Student realizes that it may last longer than originally planned, it is possible to extend the financing period beyond the period specified in the contract. Details in the Duration of mobility tab.

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

  • Confirmation of Stay - a document confirming the dates of arrival and departure from a foreign university, which is the basis for calculating the actual duration of mobility, and therefore the total scholarship due to the Student. Document templates from other universities are accepted.
  • Learning Agreement for Studies (LAS) - part After the mobility, consisting of table C, in which the Coordinator of the partner university confirms the subjects completed by the Student, and table D, in which the Coordinator of the Jagiellonian University decides how to transfer the subjects from the partner university to the Jagiellonian University and how many ECTS points are awarded for them. If changes have been made to the Before the mobility section, the During the Mobility section must be submitted if it has not been submitted previously. The documents must have a complete set of signatures.
  • Transcript of Records (ToR) - a document issued by a foreign university to confirm that the subjects have been passed.
    ToR is equivalent to Table C in After the Mobility - you just need to submit one of these documents.
  • After submitting the above documents, the Student is created a profile on the Beneficiary Module portal, which automatically generates and sends a Participant Survey to the Student's e-mail address. The survey should be completed and sent in PDF format to  International Students Office e-mail address.
