If you are considering a period of study abroad and have not chosen any of the foreign universities or other educational institutions involved in the established Charles University mobility programmes, you can try a number of other schemes: this page contains a regularly updated list of international offers. The stays listed below are organized by foreign universities or research institutions, educational foundations, institutions with links to foreign embassies, non-profit NGOs etc. Some of the stays are partly or wholly funded by the host institution; in other cases, however, the applicants are expected to cover the cost themselves.

4th School of Law and Economy of China - University of Warsaw

The organizers of the 4th edition of  School of Law and Economy of China would like to offer a special 4EU+ Alliance discount for students that wish to participate. The 4EU+ discount is valid until 26 September. See more information in the brochure.

The school is a unique one-year program organised by the Polish Research Centre for Law and Economy of China (Faculty of Law and Administration, University of Warsaw). Our goal is to equip participants of the School with comprehensive knowledge about Chinese law, economy and business aspects (with some focus on socio-cultural issues too). The Saturday classes (in English) are held on Zoom and they are delivered by the world-class scholars (Peking University, China University of Political Science and Law, University of Oxford, University of Melbourne, Leiden University, University of Cologne etc.) and experts (Google, Clifford Chance law firm, ministries, think-tanks and public institutions etc.). The range of topics is really wide and perfectly suited to a diverse group of participants. Our course might be especially interesting for students of law, international relations, economy, Chinese studies and some other social sciences faculties).
