Financial Support at CU

As an international full degree student, you are eligible for the scholarships mentioned below. These scholarships are intended to support international mobility and cover some of the financial costs of study-abroad stays.

  • Mobility Fund - mostly for longer study stays (e.g. through bilateral university agreements)

  • POINT - short stays (e.g. summer schools)

Please note that eligibility for each scholarship is subject to different conditions. If you are going on Erasmus, you are not eligible for any additional scholarships apart from the original Erasmus scholarship awarded to you.

Mobility Fund

The objective of MF CU for students is to provide financial support, particularly for:

  • studies at a university abroad for a period of one to two semesters (based on inter-university agreements; or as "free movers" for MA and PhD students; or within joint doctoral programs and cotutelle)

  • short-term scientific or research stays abroad (trips to conferences, seminars, congresses, etc. are not supported); these stays are intended mainly for students of PhD study programmes for the purpose of research work.

FM CU's Priorities are announced annually. The full text of the Priorities for 2023 is available here.

Support from MF CU funds can be provided to:

  • students in full-time study

    When assessing applications for a financial contribution, the previous length of the study period will also be taken into account; applicants should be in the standard period of study.

  • students who fulfill their study plan in timely manner (not lacking behind compulsory courses, recommended number of ECTS etc.)

When submitting an application and implementing mobility, it is necessary to follow the detailed Methodological guidelines and other important documents of FM CU, which can be found on the rectorate website of FM UK.
