  1. A student is obliged to prepare, before departure, in cooperation with the relevant Departmental Erasmus+ Coordinator and the partner university/receiving institution:
    For studies:

    recognition table, which includes a list of courses taken at the partner university and their equivalents from the educational programme at UEM – download a file

    fill in online Learning Agreement Student Mobility for Studies – via the website

    For traineeships:

    fill in Learning Agreement Student Mobility for Traineeships– download a file

  2. A student is obliged to read the Erasmus Student Charter.
  3. A student is obliged to deliver to the Erasmus Office insurance covering the period of the mobility.
    Insurance information

    Each student is responsible for insuring himself/herself before departure.
    The insurance covering the duration of stay at the receiving institution MUST include:

    health insurance and insurance against accidents for a duration of travel and stay at the receiving institution, including the costs of transportation to the home country;

    liability insurance covering at least damages caused by the participant at the place of studies/traineeships.

    IMPORTANT! The insurance must cover the costs of a body’s transportation to its home country in case of death.

    The insurance is for a mobility participant and the participant will take advantage of the insurance abroad if necessary. The University doesn’t insure the mobility participants in any additional way.
    It is the participant’s decision about the scope and amount of the insurance and the above-mentioned are the minimum requirements imposed by the Erasmus+ Programme.

    if the participant is insured in the National Health Fund (NFZ), the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued by the NFZ guarantees the insurance of treatment costs and the right to receive healthcare on the territory of the EU and countries participating in the Erasmus+ Programme. Details at the NFZ website;

    insurance against accidents and liability insurance is available at any insurance company;

    some foreign universities require incoming Erasmus+ students to buy compulsory insurance. To avoid double expenses, find out before departure what formalities you will have to complete at the receiving university;

    insurance is also offered by common student cards. The cards are one of the most popular forms of insurance chosen by the students going on Erasmus. The EURO26 or ISIC card is not only an insurance policy ensuring insurance outside Poland but it is also a kind of international student status certificate and a pass to discounts.

  4. A student qualified for studies or traineeships is oblidged, before departure and upon return, to complete a mandatory online language proficiency test in the language of mobility, in the European Commission’s “Online Language Support – OLS” system at the EU Academy ( podlinkować EU Academy: https://academy.europa.eu/) and to use the resources of the platform, which allows for the improvement of 29 languages: English, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, Icelandic, Macedonian, Norwegian, Serbian and Turkish. The result of the language test does not affect the award of the scholarship. Those for whom the language of mobility is their native language are exempt from the test. Licenses for students to take the language proficiency test and the online language course will be made available automatically by the OLS system or by WSEiZ.
  5. A student must submit to the Erasmus Office a legibly signed statement concerning payment of the Erasmus+ Programme grant, in which a number of a bank account in EUR currency should be given to which the grant will be transferred – download a file.

Funding from the Erasmus+ Programme

For studies or traineeship mobility students receive a grant awarded under the Erasmus+ Programme. The grant doesn’t provide full coverage of costs related to staying abroad but only covers the difference between the costs of living in Poland and those in the host country. The Committee qualifying students may decide to send a student to the mobility for studies/traineeships under the Erasmus+ Programme without financial support (grant).

The financing duration of the mobility (i.e. grant payment) depends on the number of funds granted to the University of Ecology and Management in Warsaw by the National Agency for the Erasmus+ Programme:

for studies (SMS) – minimum 2 months (60 days), maximum 5 months (150 days) – check the grant value,

for traineeships (SMP) – minimum 2 months (60 days), maximum 3 months (90 days) – check the grant value.

Attention! WSEiZ students in the academic year 2023/2024 within KA131/2023 project are exempt from 30% of the WSEiZ tuition fee for the time of their STUDIES abroad under the Erasmus+ Programme. The total amount of tuition fee exemption and other discounts can’t exceed 15% of the due tuition fee for a study cycle.

Under the KA131/2023 project ‘participants with fewer opportunities’, to whom belong students with disabilities (with documented recognised disability) and those from disadvantaged backgrounds (who are entitled to a social grant at the moment of the recruitment) will receive an allowance of 250 EUR per month.

A student with a disability pursuing mobility is entitled to receive additional funds under the “participant inclusion” support to cover costs directly related to the disability, without which the implementation of the trip would not be possible (other than standard costs related to travel and subsistence during the stay abroad), which exceed the amount of the supplementary payment to the individual support rate for participants with fewer opportunities, without which the implementation of the mobility would not be possible. The amount of the additional amount will be determined on the basis of a special application, prepared by the student and submitted through WSEiZ to the National Agency of the Erasmus+ Program (NA). The template of the application submitted to the NA is available on the website of the National Agency of the Erasmus+ Program: erasmusplus.org.pl. The application must be sent to the NA immediately after the student’s eligibility for the mobility and no later than 5 weeks before the student’s departure on the scholarship. In the special application for additional costs directly related to the disability, the student must specify in detail the needs arising from the disability, other than standard travel and living expenses while abroad. Each additional cost will require a detailed justification, an indication of the amount of the anticipated expenses, and a statement of the source from which the anticipated amount of expenses was calculated. Each request will be considered individually by the NA. The settlement of additional costs will be a settlement of actual costs. Detailed information on the terms and conditions of the grant has been published in the NA announcement available at: erasmusplus.org.pl.

In case of students and graduates ‘with fewer opportunities’ to:
– short-term mobility to programme and partner countries (exempt countries from regions 13 and 14),
– long-term mobility to partner countries (exempt countries from regions 13 and 14), the participant gains also funds to cover travel expenses calculated on the basis of the distance calculator according to the table below:

LUMP SUM ,,Green Travel”
23 EUR
180 EUR 210 EUR
275 EUR 320 EUR
360 EUR 410 EUR
530 EUR 610 EUR
820 EUR
1500 EUR

“Green Travel” is defined as green travel using low-emission, sustainable means of transportation such as bus, train, bicycle, carpooling – a joint trip by people on the same route, for the same destination, in the car of one of the co-passengers. The method of documenting the implementation of travel by low-carbon means of transport will be indicated in a separate communication.

Students and graduates who do not receive a standard travel lump sum and meet the requirements related to “green travel”, in case the round trip is made by low-carbon, sustainable means of transport, will receive a one-time support of 50 euros, in addition to individual support.

In the case of meeting the travel conditions specified as “green travel”, students and graduates participating in mobility are entitled to receive up to 1 additional day for living expenses during travel as part of individual support.

Payment of domestic grants (e.g. social grant, Rector’s grant) to which the student was entitled before the departure will continue during the student’s mobility abroad.
