Before mobility & grant amounts

AFTER ACCEPTANCE BY THE FOREIGN ORGANISATION

Acceptance by the foreign organisation means obtaining a signed and approved Learning Agreement for a Traineeship.

The student further arranges his/her stay in terms of organisation (accommodation, visa – information: SAAIC, MFA SR, as visa-free travel is in principle only up to 90 days).

At least 6 weeks before departure, the student will upload the following documents into Mobility Online:

  1. Learning agreement for traineeship (the document is downloadable in Mobility Online) – once downloaded, the document will be checked, filled in and then signed by all parties and uploaded into the system (we also accept electronic signatures).
  2. Confirmation of enrolment for the academic year of the mobility
  3. Confirmation of the date of the state final examination (only final year students on mobility in the summer semester).
  4. Copy of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) valid during the mobility
  5. A copy of commercial insurance (for example Erapo insurance for Erasmus+ students) (must include all necessary insurances for the whole mobility period), in case of extension of the traineeship it is necessary to extend the commercial insurance for the new mobility period:
  • Medical expenses insurance
  • Liability insurance (covers damage caused by participants)
  • Accident, death and disability insurance
  • Legal expenses insurance

Once all documents have been uploaded and you have filled in your personal and other details in Mobility Online, you will receive a Grant Agreement to the university email. The student is obliged to read the agreement, print it twice and send both copies to the rectorate Erasmus Office (OPE), to Ms Tamara Žiak. Signed agreement can be delivered to OPE by post (Oddelenie programu Erasmus+, Univerzita Komenského, Šafárikovo námestie 6, P.O.BOX 440, 814 99 Bratislava 1), or through the registry office of the faculty where you are studying, or through university registry office at Šafárikovo námestie 6.

If the student needs an Erasmus student status confirmation from abroad, he/she downloads the form “Erasmus student status confirmation” – the document can be downloaded in the Mobility online system.

Once the agreement has been signed by the Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator, we will send you one copy to the address you provided in your mobility application form.

WARNING: If a student travels without a properly concluded agreement (signed by the Institutional Coordinator), he/she cannot claim the grant.

Based on the recommendation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic, students are advised to register on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic before travelling on mobility for assistance in case of emergency situations. REGISTER HERE

GRANT AMOUNTS

The allocated grant represents net income for the student and is not subject to taxation. It is only a support grant, so it cannot be expected to cover all the costs associated with a student's stay abroad. Therefore, it is necessary for the student to count on his financial participation. It is recommended that the student, when negotiating the terms of the internship, insist on a financial reward/bonus from the receiving institution (accommodation, food, ...).

The calculation of the grant for the mobility period is determined by multiplying the number of days and 1/30 of the monthly grant intended for the respective receiving country. Conditions of the grant are specified in the Grant agreement signed between the Comenius University (represented by the Institutional Coordinator) and the student.

The allowance for travel costs is allocated to the participant based on the distance from Bratislava/Martin to the place of activity and back. 

Example for the academic year 2024/2025: A student travels for an internship to Poland (Krakow) for the period from 01.10.2024 - 30.11.2024 (2 months/60 days*).

The grant is calculated as follows, other than green travel: Poland belongs to 3 groups, the monthly grant is €700, €700/30 days * 60 days = €1,400 + distance 295.73km (distance up to 499km ) = €1,400 + €211=€1,611

The grant is calculated as follows, green travel: Poland belongs to 3 groups, the monthly grant is €700, €700/30 days * 60 days = €1,400 + distance 295.73km (distance up to 499km) = €1,400 + €285 = €1,685

Green travel is defined as travel in which low-emission means of transport, such as buses or trains, are used for the main part of the journey there and back, respectively. ecological method of transport, e.g. shared journey in one car (car-pooling).

Partner countries in regions 1 - 12700 €/month, partner countries in regions 13 and 14: 824 €/month.
