Check whether your university has an Inter-institutional agreement (IIA) with your chosen faculty of Comenius University. Partner institutions of your university should be published at the website of your university; or ask the mobility administrator at your home university.

Under normal circumstances, you can apply to Družba(students of Law, Natural Sciences and Medicine), Mlyny (other faculties located in Bratislava) and dormitories of Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin.
Slovak language courses are available for all incoming students. You will be informed about the deadline for registration in advance. These courses are not mandatory. You can choose Survival Slovak during the Welcome Week and/or Slovak for beginners during the semester.
