Gaining competencies through international exchange is one of the most important advantages of studies at UEM (WSEiZ). Thanks to foreign studies or traineeships you have a chance to develop language as well as practical skills comprehensively. Moreover, the environment you go to will positively influence the development of your competencies expected in the labour market.
The recruitment deadline is announced to the public (usually September/October for summer semester mobility and February/March for winter semester mobility).
Application forms submitted after the deadline won’t be considered.
The evaluation and selection of candidates for mobility within the Erasmus+ Programme are performed by the Recruitment Committee consisting of the Institutional Erasmus+ Coordinator, Departmental Erasmus+ Coordinators, and a representative of the Student Council.
Any full-time or part-time WSEiZ student (regardless of citizenship) who meets all the following conditions may apply for the mobility:
is at least on the second year of first-cycle studies or is on the first year of second-cycle studies;
at the moment of the recruitment and departure to a mobility under the Erasmus+ Programme, student is not on dean’s leave and won’t be on the leave during the mobility;
has no financial obligations towards WSEiZ;
correctly filled in and submitted the application form and the required attachments by the deadline.
average grades from the last two semesters of studies already completed, and in case of students in the first semester of second-cycle studies average of grades obtained in the last two semesters of first-cycle studies;
the level of documented knowledge of a foreign language spoken at a receiving university, which enables the student to complete the studies (copies of certificates, diplomas, or a certificate from a foreign language teacher at WSEiZ). If the knowledge of a foreign language is not documented, the Recruitment Committee may conduct a language test.
the level of involvement in activities at WSEiZ (membership in scientific organisations, participation in scientific conferences, etc.);
the level of activity outside the University (e.g. in non-governmental organisations).
The Erasmus+ programme enables international exchange between partner universities located in the European Union and beyond. Through participation in the Programme it is possible to co-finance student mobility for exchange studies and traineeships, as well as University staff mobility in order to improve their professional competences.

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.
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.
For the sake of safety during the mobility abroad, we recommend registering your stay in the Odyseusz portal (only for students with Polish citizenship) created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Republic of Poland (MFA).
Thanks to the registration:
in case of emergencies abroad, the MFA will be able to contact you,
provide you with necessary information and assistance through the appropriate diplomatic and consular post,
if you wish – you will be informed about the possibility of registering to participate in elections abroad.
you will find current restrictions related to the COVID-19,
you will find verified information for travellers to all countries of the world,
you will find contacts to Polish posts abroad.
A confirmation from the partner university stating the actual duration of your stay on the mobility, including start and end date of the mobility.
Transcript of Records obtained from the partner university.
A confirmation from the receiving institution stating the completion of the traineeships programme with its evaluation, and the actual duration of your stay (start and end date of the mobility).
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 2021/2022 within KA103/2020 and KA131/2021 projects are exempt from 70% 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 KA131/2021 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 who participates in the Erasmus+ mobility under the KA131/2021 project is entitled to receive additional funds to cover costs directly related to the disability and without which the mobility would not have been possible (other than standard costs connected with travel and living abroad). Each additional cost will require a detailed justification, specifying the amount of the expected expenses and providing the source on which the expected expenses have been calculated. The number of additional funds will be specified based on the application submitted to Fundacja Rozwoju Systemu Edukacji (Foundation for the Development of the Education System)– National Agency for the Erasmus+ Programme. The calculation of additional costs will be a settlement of real costs.
In case of students and graduates ‘with fewer opportunities’ to:
– short-term mobility to programme and partner countries (exempt countries from regions 5 and 14),
– long-term mobility to partner countries (exempt countries from regions 5 and 14), the participant gains also funds to cover travel expenses calculated on the basis of the distance calculator according to the table below:
|DISTANCE||LUMP SUM||,,Green Travel”|
|from 10 to 99 km||23 EUR||–|
|from 100 to 499 km||180 EUR||210 EUR|
|from 500 to 1999 km||275 EUR||320 EUR|
|from 2000 to 2999 km||360 EUR||410 EUR|
|from 3000 to 3999 km||530 EUR||610 EUR|
|from 4000 to 7999 km||820 EUR||–|
|from 8000 km or more||1500 EUR||–|
‘Green Travel’ is a journey using lower carbon emission means of transport such as bus, train, bike or carpooling. Students who don’t receive standardised lump sum for travel can receive 50 EUR for complying with ‘green travel’ requirements.
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.
