Qualification prerequisites for Erasmus+ (in Czech)

Repeated student mobility under Erasmus+ Programme:

The European Commission set the following rules for repeated student mobility within Erasmus+:

  • Each student may participate in a study period and/or traineeship repeatedly in each study cycle up to the total length of 12 months.
  • Previous mobilities (study periods and work placements together) are added up in the study cycle concerned including mobilities realized within LLP Erasmus 2007-2013 and Erasmus Mundus.

Although repeated study periods of students within Erasmus+ are possible, applications to such stays may be assessed on the basis of preferences announced in the selection procedure, due to the limited financial means assigned to this activity.
