Who provides support and funding?

International mobility at the level of the University of Economics is under the patronage of the Foreign Relations Department. You can find information on all forms of mobility on their website. However, they are mainly tasked with the ERASMUS exchange programmes, which are governed by unified rules. The department provides administrative and information support for this type of stay as well as financing from the ERASMUS programme funds or from the University of Economics funds.

The decisions on other forms of trips, the setting of rules and funding are within the full responsibility of the faculties of the University of Economics. The Vice-Dean for Development and External Relations at the Faculty of Management is responsible for the foreign stays agenda. The International mobility coordinator is tasked with related organizational and administrative matters and provides information support to students.

Also involved to a limited extent is the Vice-Dean for Educational Activities, who decides on the eligibility of enrolled subjects related to student mobility (exchange study trips, Freemover, and Summer school), and who signs the so-called Learning Agreement (exchange study stay). In the case of a professional internship, the student deals with organizational issues, including drafting contracts with the guarantor of the 61PXE0 and the 62PXE0 modules.

Where can I find more information?

The main source of information is the website of the VŠE International Office. All relevant information can be found on this website including the funding rules valid for the Faculty of Management. Students who have already taken a trip abroad will share with you their experiences gained abroad at the annual International Days.
