Wed – internal focus day
Fri, 10:00-14:00 hrs
We encourage students to participate in visits at foreign universities offered by the Erasmus programme. Students with disabilities who apply for project participation are subject to the same recruitment principles as all other students.
Successful candidates who become Erasmus participants can request co-financial assistance from a fund for students with disabilities. Such additional bursaries are designed to cover extraordinary expenses related to the specific needs of disabled persons.
The National Agency of the programme can grant an additional bursary to persons holding a certificate confirming their mild or moderate disability in the form of compensation up to a ceiling specified for a given country for the scheduled period of the student's stay abroad. On top of that, the National Agency may grant to those with certified considerable disability an additional amount to pursue a precisely defined objective. Co-funding decisions concerning disabled bursary holders shall be taken on a case-by-case basis.
Students requesting a bursary must complete a relevant application form which must be then signed by the university Erasmus programme coordinator (at the International Students Office DOSZ) and the University Disability Officer (at the DSS).
