Erasmus+ student mobility
Erasmus+ program is the largest exchange student program in the EU. Erasmus students can apply for study and traineeship to 32 countries of Europe and spend a maximum of 12 months abroad per each cycle of study: they spend 3-12 months abroad as a student at a host university or spend 2-12 months as a professional trainee at a private or public organization active in the labour market.
Additional grants are available for students with disabilities.
Being awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020, ELTE actively participates in the Erasmus+ program and holds nearly 800 Erasmus+ agreements with Erasmus partner institutions.
Benefits for Erasmus students
- Students get the same right as of the host university’s students.
- Students will not be charged tuition fees.
- Courses successfully completed at the host university are recognized at the home university of the Erasmus students on their return.
Who are eligible to apply?
- Students must carry out their mobility activity in a Programme Country different from the country of the sending organisation and the country where the student has his/her accommodation during his/her studies.

Special needs support
If you are a student with special needs (in such an individual physical, mental or health-related situation that your participation in the mobility would not be possible without extra financial support), you can apply for additional grant support to the National Agency in your country in order to cover the supplementary costs for your participation in the mobility activities.
As regards the accompanying persons for students with special needs, they are entitled to receive a contribution based on real cost.
Please ask your Erasmus coordinator at your home university how you can request such additional support at the National Agency in your country.
For ELTE students
If you are a full-time international student already enrolled for a full-degree program at ELTE and would like to study as an Erasmus student at one of our Erasmus partner universities, read about the application procedures and contact your Faculty Erasmus Coordinator for additional details. More information about the Erasmus student mobility is also available in Hungarian.
Calls are published on the university website around February each academic year.
