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.

  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 – download a file

    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 before departure and upon return is obliged to take an online language test in the European Commission’s Online Linguistic Support (OLS) system. Licences for the test are granted by the Erasmus+ Programme Coordinators. Students for whom the given language is the native language are exempt from the test. The result has no influence on the grant awarded. In addition, during the whole period of mobility, the student has the possibility of taking old language courses offered in the system at different levels completely free of charge. The course may be in the language of mobility, e.g. English, or in the native language of the receiving country (e.g. Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, etc.). The course licences are made available automatically by the OLS system after the student passes the first language test or by the Erasmus+ Programme Coordinators.
  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.
  6. A student who meets the requirements related to ‘Green Travel’ which stands for traveling by using lower carbon emission means of transport such as bus, train, ship or carpooling, is obliged to deliver a legibly signed statement referring to the ‘Green Travel’ – the statement should be obtained from the Erasmus+ Programme Coordinators.
  7. A student with citizenship other than one of a member state of the EU or European Economic Area should check on its own the rules of entering and legalising his/her stay on the territory of the receiving country as a participant of the Erasmus+ Programme.
  8. A student, before departure, is unconditionally obliged to sign a grant agreement in the Erasmus Office. Later on, the student receives 80% of the grant awarded. The remaining 20% are counted based on the Confirmation of stay and paid after the student’s arrival and full mobility recognition.

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 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:

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 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.
