ERASMUS+ International Credit Mobility - STUDY STAYS

ERASMUS+ International Credit Mobility (E+ ICM) is a programme within the Erasmus+ framework promoting the exchange of students, academics, and non-academic staff with partner countries of the ERASMUS+ program (i.e. mostly non-EU and non-EFTA countries and non-candidate countries of the EU).

Mobilities are realized via specific projects with partner universities, the period of implementation is usually 3 years. Projects are submitted in a yearly call in February and the results are usually announced in following August.

  • The Faculty of Social Sciences receives funding for students' scholarships in accordance with budgets of the Czech Ministry of Education and EU, with their level being set by the Erasmus+ ICM program.
  • All regular Charles University students, regardless of their nationality and form of study (part-time and regular) are eligible for an Erasmus+ exchange.
  • In general, students may take part in exchanges abroad within both the Erasmus+ and Erasmus+ ICM programs in each study cycle (i.e. at Bachelor and Master levels and Doctoral candidates). The usual duration is one semester, in individual cases may last two. However, total time abroad (both study abroad and traineeships included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study (Thus, if being previously on Erasmus+ study stay/placement, the number of months must be counted together, the E+ and the E+ICM to not exceed the 12 months for one study cycle).
  • Since the academic year 2016/2017, it is not possible to request extra funding from the special purpose scholarship for an Erasmus+ exchange.
  • Students nominated by our Faculty may be rejected by the partner university if they do not fulfill their requirements.
  • Respective institutes of the Faculty select students on the basis of two criteria combined: the student´s quality (study achievements, language competence, and academic motivation) and suitability of chosen partner university.


Mobility Length:

  • The length depends on each particular project, the minimum stay is 3 months (90 days), the maximum is 12 months per study cycle. (If being previously on Erasmus+ study stay/training placement, the number of months on the E+ must be included in the sum of months and shall not exceed the 12 months for one study cycle).

Financial Conditions:

  • The financial support is composed of two parts, grant for living expenses (accommodation and other living costs) and travel allowance supporting the travel expenses.

Grant for Living Expenses:

  • Incoming Students: 800 EUR/month
  • Outgoing Students: 700 EUR/month.

Travel Allowance:

  • The amount depends on the distance between the home institution and the host institution.
  • To calculate the distance, use the official distance calculator.
