Short-term Study Programme

A short-term study programme is an alternative to an exchange programme and is usually a 1-2 week trip to a foreign school. This form of mobility usually combines studying with opportunities to getting to know the school and the area. The Faculty of Management recognises and supports two types of stays in this category: (a) EUROMATES trip, (b) summer school trip.

EUROMATES Programme

This programme is an official short-term study mobility of the Faculty of Management, in which the faculty cooperates with its partner faculties. The core of the programme is a one-week trip during the semester where students have the opportunity to complete one intensive course and also get to know the partner faculty and the city or town where the school is located.

More information can be found on the programme website.

Summer school

Summer schools are organised by universities around the world during the summer holidays. The content is very different and varies considerably in the amount of the participation fee so it is advisable to choose carefully. Summer school is a form of individual student mobility, where everything is arranged by the student, i.e. the student chooses the summer school, communicates with the organisers and fully ensures the organisation of their trip.

The Faculty of Management supports students with the scholarship fund although limits the number of supported students to a maximum of four per academic year. However, when deemed reasonable, the FM also has the right to increase the number of supported students in an academic year. Students of the combined form of study may also apply for financial support.
