The Erasmus+ programme allows students to travel to foreign universities for part of their studies and internship. AGH UST cooperates with numerous universities from around the world.
Students interested in coming within the Erasmus+ programme should make sure that a bilateral agreement on cooperation concerning the program has been signed between AGH UST and the student's home university. All interested candidates are asked to contact the Erasmus+ coordinator at their home university.
Recruitment for Erasmus+ studies is conducted via an online platform. Nominated students should register and create an account, fill in the application form and attach all required documents.
The application platform is available here:
A correctly completed application should contain the following documents:
transcript of records from subjects completed at the home university in previous years confirmed by the sending university,
a scan of passport page or other identity document with a photo and personal data,
a certificate confirming knowledge of English at the minimum level of B2 (according to the Council of Europe scale) or a certificate confirming knowledge of Polish - depending on the language in which the classes are conducted; we also accept a certificate confirming language competences issued by the home university of an international student,
an official photo (passport format).
Students can take advantage of the opportunity of foreign exchange within the Erasmus+ Partner Countries programme (KA171). It is a development of the European Union's Erasmus+ educational programme.
Until now, students from Albania, China, Kazakhstan, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and Vietnam have come to AGH UST within the Erasmus+ KA171 programme.
Information related to new and existing agreements, as well as the payment of a scholarship for students is provided by the Centre for International Affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org
Citizens of EU countries can cross the Polish border on the basis of a valid travel document (passport / identity document).
Non-EU citizens must have a valid visa. Detailed information on visa requirements is provided by Polish diplomatic missions located in the country of residence.
AGH UST does not provide insurance for students coming as part of exchange programmes.
International students are required to purchase the appropriate insurance policy before coming to Poland.
Citizens of EU countries can have a valid EHIC card.
Non-EU citizens should purchase health insurance before coming to Poland. Detailed information is available from Polish diplomatic missions located in the student's country of residence.
Upon arrival in Poland, non-EU nationals can purchase an insurance package directly with the insurer (e.g. at the National Health Fund - http://www.nfz.gov.pl/).
The Learning Agreement (LA) is a document containing a list of courses followed by a student at the University. The LA must be approved by all parties to the contract (student, coordinator from the home university, coordinator at AGH UST) before arrival.
The LA should only contain subjects from the list of courses available in the AGH UST International Courses (UBPO) database for which the student has registered. Registration on the platform is carried out in real time. The number of places on some courses, especially in laboratory classes, is limited. The order of applications applies. If the limit of places is reached, registration for a given course is not possible.
When choosing subjects, please pay attention to the class schedule.
After arriving in Krakow, you can make changes in the LA.
Students must first change online courses within 14 days of the start of the semester.
The changed LA or the so-called During Mobility must be approved and presented to the Department for International Students during the first month of stay.
Employees of the Department for International Students are not authorized to sign the LA. Students are asked to contact the academic supervisor directly.
