  • Hungarian citizenship or a residence permit in Hungary. The applicant must be registered at the University of Debrecen and enrolled in a degree programme leading to a recognized degree or other recognised tertiary level qualification in full-or part-time.
  • Newly graduated students can also participate in the Erasmus+ student mobility for traineeship within 12 months after their graduation (in this case student have to submit their applications before obtaining their certificate/degree and in case of successful application they have to sign the contract before graduation.)

  • The applicant must have finished at least 2 semesters of university studies at the time of applying (for Master or Doctoral students the semesters from their previous studies can be taken into account).
  • Positive departmental/institutional assessment of the application is one of the prerequisites of the mobility for placement.
  • A study period can be combined with a complementary traineeship. The combination of the two periods means that the traineeship should be done under the supervision of the same host higher education institution where the student carries out his/her studies. The two activities must take place sequentially. Grant amounts for the "combined period" are the same as that of the study period. Grant for the combined mobility will be available in autumn. 
  • Students may receive grants for mobility totalling up to 12 months (studies and traineeship) per each cycle of study, independently from the number and type of mobility activities (zero grant is also included in the mobility period).

  • Students enrolled in single cycle (one–tier) training programs may receive grants for mobility periods totalling up to 2*12 =24 months.

  • The receiving institution must issue a certificate of the results achieved by the student upon completing the internship at the receiving institution/enterprise.
  • The training period at the host institution/company must be fully recognised by the University of Debrecen in accordance with the terms laid down in the Learning Agreement for Traineeships. (Except in the case of mobility for traineeships fulfilled after the graduation)
  • During the mobility students stay registered at the University of Debrecen. They are considered full students of the UD and are fully entitled for the stipends and student loans. Stipends and social contributions that students are eligible for at the University of Debrecen will continue to be transferred to them during their period of study abroad.
  • In case of fulfilling the internship at a Higher Education Institution ERASMUS+ students do not have to pay tuition fee to the host university, but if they are fee paying students at the University of Debrecen, they will have to fulfil this requirement during the period spent abroad as well. 
  • The applicant must possess the required language knowledge (language requirements of the host institution/enterprise) and confirm it credibly at the assessment of the application.
  • The location (host country) of the ERASMUS+ student placement cannot be the student’s country of nationality/residence.
