Recruitment for studies under the Erasmus+ Programme
Recruitment for studies is always held at the beginning of the spring-summer semester of the academic year preceding the trip. In the case of vacancies - supplementary recruitment for the second semester of the academic year takes place at the beginning of the autumn-winter semester.
The stay on study abroad under Erasmus+ cannot exceed one academic year. A scholarship that began in the summer semester of one year cannot be continued in the winter semester of the following academic year.
The period of study abroad is recognized by the home department and does not extend your time of study at ULS, provided that you complete the program of study (Learning Agreement for Studies) agreed upon prior to your departure, and complete any curriculum differences, which are determined by the ULS home department.

Erasmus+ Program Agreement
Erasmus+ Learning Agreement for Studies
Each person going to study abroad under the Erasmus+ program is required to sign a financial agreement of the program with ULS (at the Office of the University Erasmus+ Coordinator and no later than two weeks before the planned date of departure to the partner university).
A prerequisite for ULS to sign a financial agreement with a student is to have a study program - Learning Agreement for Studies - approved and signed at the Erasmus+ recruitment stage (by oneself, the host university and the sending university - the home department of ULS).
All expatriates are required to have insurance valid for the entire period of stay at the partner university (in the country of mobility):
- Personal accident insurance, covering at least damages caused by the grantee at the place of study,
- recommended by the University: liability insurance at the place of study, covering damage caused by the scholarship holder at the place of study,
- and mandatory medical-health insurance (e.g., a valid EHIC card - free confirmation of medical insurance).
Additional private medical insurance is recommended to scholarship recipients as useful in case of required medical treatment or in case they need to return to Poland for medical reasons.
In order to sign a financial agreement, each Erasmus+ grantee should also submit to the Office of International Academic Exchange a bank data form with information on the foreign currency bank account (account currency: EUR) to which the program's grant will be transferred:
The Office of International Academic Exchange also recommends that all scholarship recipients register before their trip with the "Odyseusz" service run by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Online Linguistic Support
Online Linguistic Support is a tool of the European Commission aimed at surveying the level of growth of language competencies of Program Participants, as well as developing these competencies through the language courses offered.
Each student going abroad for part of their studies or professional practice is required to take two tests in one foreign language of their choice, as appropriate:
- "pre-departure" test
- "upon return" test (not applicable to those who have achieved C2 level after the first language test).
The student takes tests in the foreign language in which classes will be taught at the foreign university or in the official language of the host country. The result of the tests is the determination of the level (A1-C2) in the total assessment of the 5 components tested: grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening, key communicative phrases.
