*Regulations for 2021/22*

Dear Students, Colleagues and Partners,

We kindly inform you that Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is accepting students and staff (including teachers and researchers as well) for incoming mobility for the 2021/22 Academic Year.

The University intends to start the 2021/22 Academic Year with personal attendance. While maintaining the priority of personal knowledge transfer, the University intends to preserve some of the well-established forms of digital education and bring online and hybrid solutions developed during the pandemic into normal operation.

ELTE university strongly recommends for all University Citizens to take the opportunity to be vaccinated. In the next 2021/22 Academic Year, no one can plead to the absence of their vaccination in order to be exempted from the general presence regulations or internships bound to immunity due to occupational safety measures; additionally, all university events can be attended only with proof of immunity.

Attention! Based on the latest regulations of the Hungarian National Agency in February 2021, in addition to physical exchange, virtual and hybrid (blended) incoming mobilities are also supported in the Autumn Semester of 2021/22.
  • Physical: physical mobility always has priority, if necessary, mobilities can be postponed until 31 August 2022.
  • Virtual: If physical mobility is not possible due to entry or institutional regulations, the exchange can be implemented in virtual form. In the case of virtual exchange, the scholarship holder can implement the professional program detailed in the application without physical mobility, that is, without travelling to the host country. For the virtual period the scholarship holder is entitled for a reduced amount of the physical grant. It is subject to the prior declaration of the host ELTE faculty / department that the professional program can be completed in virtual form.
  • Hybrid: in the case of hybrid (blended) mobility, the mobility can be implemented partly in physical form and partly in virtual form (e.g. the mobility can be started in virtual form and then if the conditions allow it can be continued in physical form or vice versa). Please consult your host ELTE faculty/department if they can host you in the tendered period for hybrid mobility.
  • More information about the available exchange types: English

While planning your mobility, please pay attention to the information issued on the website of WHO:

Greetings to all prospective mobility students and staff,

Department of Erasmus+ and International Programmes


CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) is an exchange academic programme in the fields of education and research which involves 15+ Central-European countries, that offers both teachers and students opportunities to spend a study or teaching period abroad at the partner universities of CEEPUS Member Countries, including participation in special courses and summer universities. CEEPUS scholarship holders are granted exemption of tuition fees at the host institutions.

CEEPUS Member Countries: Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, North Macedonia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Poland, Prishtina/Kosovo, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Hungary

The main activity of CEEPUS is university networks - created by minimum 3 universities from 3 different countries - operating joint programs on special subject fields. CEEPUS offers mobility grants for students and teachers in this framework. It is a unique opportunity to share knowledge and experiences among countries with a common cultural heritage and a strong background of academic cooperation.

ELTE is a member of 12 networks in 2020/21, and 13 networks in 2021/22.

If your home institution is not part of a CEEPUS network that has a relevant scientific topic for you, you can choose to submit a Freemover application. Freemover applications can be financed only when the CEEPUS networks did not use their quota and there are still free scholarship months. Therefore, this option is usually available for the second semester. For the first semester, a limited number of Freemover scholarships are usually available of which the National CEEPUS Office publishes information on their website at the beginning of summer.

You can find the current call for applications here and detailed information regarding contacts, mobility grants and application requirements here, please read them carefully before you apply.

Further information via CEEPUS website and Tempus Public Foundation website.

With general questions regarding Eötvös Loránd University and CEEPUS Grant payment procedure, please contact Ms Orsolya Pósch at erasmus@elte.hu. Educational/academic issues are to be discussed with the faculty or Network/Academic Coordinators.
