Inter-university agreements signed by Charles University provide a basis not only for traditional one-semester or one-year periods of study abroad, but also for short-term placements and summer language courses. If you want to go to a foreign university under one of these agreements, you should first check whether Charles University’s agreement with the partner university provides for student mobility and whether your field of study is taught there.
For a list of partner universities which have student mobility arrangements with Charles University, see here.
Submit your application and other necessary documents to the international office of your faculty by the deadline set by the faculty.
The faculties pre-select and nominate their candidates for the selection procedure conducted by the International Relations Office at Rectorate.
The final selection is made by the Vice-Rector for International Relations and Mobility considering study results, degree programme (Bachelor's, Master's or doctoral), letter of motivation and language skills.
To learn more, you can also contact the staff of the International Relations Office at the Charles University Rectorate (each member of staff is responsible for particular countries).
Tuition fees waiver
Other fees may be required (various semester fees, deposits etc.)
Insurance to cover medical costs, required especially by non-European countries/universities
The costliest aspects of staying abroad are generally travel and the cost of living (accommodation, everyday expenses etc.).
The websites of our partner universities usually offer current information about living costs in the given country. This and other useful information on the practical aspects of studying abroad can also be found in the final reports written by students who have already returned from similar stays.
Some study periods based on inter-university agreements are financially supported: participants in the exchange receive a scholarship from the partner university. The current list of available study periods at partner universities abroad always includes information on whether a scholarship is offered. If no scholarship is offered, you can apply for financial support from your faculty or from the University (Mobility Fund), or you can take advantage of various foundations, grant agencies or other institutions providing financial support for student mobility.
