During the mobility period abroad students are registered students of the University of Debrecen with full rights. Stipends, social contributions and loans that students are eligible for at the University of Debrecen will continue to be transferred to them during their period of study abroad. If they are tuition-paying students at the University of Debrecen, they will have to fulfil this requirement for the period spent abroad as well.
