The mobility is completed during the studies.
During the mobility period students have active student status at Eötvös Loránd University.


(The student status lasts until the last day of the examination period of the last semester. For doctoral studies, the semester is from 1 September to 31 January and from 1 February to 31 August each year. So the mobility can last until then, but the recognition of the mobility must take place before graduation. It is the student's responsibility to initiate the mobility recognition process.)

Students can apply until the end of the last active semester (the last day of the exam period). For doctoral studies, the semester is from 1 September to 31 January and from 1 February to 31 August each year.

The traineeship starts after graduation / absolutorium and end no later than 1 year (360 days) from the date of graduation / absolutorium.

It is especially recommended for those who do not have compulsory traineeship in their curriculum or would find it difficult to implement during their studies.


Students choose from the higher education institutions (so-called partner universities) available to them.

Students independently seek an internship (no university partnership required). Applications may be submitted to any organization or institution located in an Erasmus + program country (see the list of countries in the detailed call for applications), with the exception of the institutions and bodies of the European Union.


During the traineeship, you must work full-time hours per week in accordance with the labor regulations of the host country, which is usually 35-40 hours per week, but a minimum of 30 hours.

Applications for Erasmus+ mobility in the UK can be submitted in the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility call.

It is no longer possible to carry out an Erasmus Traineeship in the UK.

Attention! For information regarding mobility opportunities in Switzerland, please check section X.: „Mobility opportunities in Switzerland”

Indicative list of the Erasmus+ partner institutions is available here. The list is constantly updated!


Please note that from the academic year 2023/24 onwards, study abroad mobility will only be possible at partner universities for which a credit recognition tool (mobility window/equivalence database) is available in the respective subject field - these tools are currently being developed.


Swiss partner universities are marked blue in the list. Please check section X.: „Mobility opportunities in Switzerland”.


If you have any questions about the availability of a partner university from the list above, please contact Krisztina Milovszky at erasmus.iia@dep.elte.hu.


For more information about the application process contact your Faculty/Academic international coordinator.


Students participating in one-cycle teacher training programme can choose from which major they apply to the mobility, depending on whether the partner institution offers suitable courses for the training.

Help on how to find a traineeship:

1. List about institutions and companies with established dialogue (where previous ELTE students have worked and further ELTE students are welcome). 
(Please pay attention to the column called "Year of the traineeship". This indicates the year when an ELTE student proceeded internship at the host institution. The earliest the year the more likely that the contact person and the contact details ar outdated. Should you be interested in any of the institutions, please always check their current contact information.)

VI. More help

VII. Practical matters

Students must obtain all the relevant information on the partner university’s webpage about the offered courses on specific study level and language.
You can get more information about this call, the partner institutions’ study programmes and courses from your Faculty/Academic international coordinator.   

Scandinavian universities typically work with an early nomination deadline, so if you want to apply to this country, you should apply as soon as possible. Contact your Faculty/Academic international coordinator for exact nomination deadlines for each university. You can read more about the nomination in the "Nomination" menu item at the bottom of the page.

You can read about the recognition of studies abroad/traineeship at Planning your studies:
- general rules for the recognition of studies abroad and the tools (mobility window and equivalence database) that ELTE uses from the 2021/22 academic year to support students in ensuring that as many subjects completed abroad are recognised as compulsory courses as possible, so that the student would finish their studies on time without the need of an extra semester (Section I),
- the credit recognition procedure and the administrative tasks and deadlines involving the process, which are mandatory for all outgoing students (Section II), and
- FAQ in the topic (Section III).

VIII. Evaluation of the applications

Submitted applications are evaluated by a professional board, stood up by the Institute/Department.
The evaluation criteria are published in the call.
The student might be required to participate at a personal interview after receiving the written evaluation.

General criteria of the evaluation (the list is not in a priority order, there might be other aspects as well according to differing Faculty regulations):

  • Language proficiency at the study field,
  • Academic achievement,
  • Professional awareness,
  • Academic excellence or other significant professional achievement,
  • Participation in Student Union activities or others at related organizations,
  • Participation in a Student Mentor/Buddy System, supporting students.

Those students who have never participated in the Erasmus+ Programme have priority during the evaluation process, however, we strongly encourage the re-application of former Erasmus + students too.

Based on the above points, the Institutes/Departments nominate students to the Erasmus Board (for study tours, internships and financial grants).

Attention! If you have simultaneously submitted other applications in the framework of the following calls: Erasmus+ study abroad program within the framework of agreements for all subject fields or outside Europe, and one of them will be awarded, your mobility application for the same mobility period will be considered cancelled.

Those students, who were nominated by the host university but were not granted financial support by the Erasmus Board, might also travel to participate in the Erasmus programme, but they need to fully cover their costs. These students are named “zero grant students”. Thanks to this status, students are free from any payment at the host university, i.e. zero grant students do not need to pay tuition fee and any costs of registration, exams, laboratory and library.

The full list of the accepted students will be approved by the Students and Staff Mobility Committee expectedly in the first half of April 2024.
Supported students will be informed via Neptun message and via their e-mail found in Neptun no later than 1 week after the Committee’s decision.
(To see the result you have to login to Neptun.)
All the applications for internships submitted later will be approved by Students and Staff Mobility Committee within two months of submission (the evaluation time might be extended during the summer and winter holidays), thus it is still possible to apply for Erasmus+ traineeships after 26 February 2024. Supported students will be informed by e-mail no later than 1 week after the Committee’s decision.

IX. Nomination

Students who have applied for study abroad mobility are nominated to the partner institution by the departmental/faculty coordinators. The nomination deadlines vary from institution to institution, so you might be conditionally nominated by your departmental/faculty coordinator before you are officially informed of the outcome of your application. The host institution always confirms whether or not they can receive you for the semester and the programme that you have applied for, so you might be contacted by the host institution before the official notification of your application result. We would like to remind you that any nomination sent before the Students and Staff Mobility Committee’s decision on your Erasmus+ application is always conditional and will only become final once your Erasmus+ status has been granted.

X. Mobility opportunities in Switzerland

Two applications are available to universities in Switzerland:

1. „Swiss-European Mobility Programme” (SEMP)

Since 2014, Switzerland does not participate in the Erasmus+ program, in its place the „Swiss-European Mobility Programme” (SEMP) was implemented by the Swiss government, which allows ELTE students to participate in a study abroad program at Swiss partner universities. ELTE's SEMP partner universities where you can apply to in this call are listed in section I.

You can apply to these partners in Neptun as detailed in section IV-V, but following the nomination (section IX) you receive your scholarship from the Swiss host institution, not ELTE. The average scholarship rate per semester is 2300 CHF (approx. 2443 EUR). The duration of the SEMP mobility is min. 91 days, max. 12 months and students can altogether can participate in a SEMP mobility (similarly to the regulation of the Erasmus+ program) up to 12 months per study cycle (e.g. 2 x 6 months mobility). Please note that you cannot apply for Erasmus+ additional support with SEMP mobility.

Awarded SEMP students prepare their mobility and scholarship documentation based on the instructions of the host institution.

Awarded students send the following documents to their faculty international coordinator for registering ther mobility in Neptun and for credit recognition:

  • before the mobility: Learning Agreement (LA) before mobility, in which the student agrees with their sending international coordinator and the receiving institution on the study plan to be undertaken abroad.
  • during the mobility:
    • Certificate of Arrival/Registration: (signed by the receiving faculty coordinator/supervisor), within 30 days after arrival.
    • Learrning Agreement (LA) during the mobility. The “During the Mobility” section of the LA must be handed in by everyone who has made changes to the courses listed in the “Before the Mobility” section of the LA by the deadline set in the general credit recognition procedure. Only deleted or added courses should be indicated in the document.
  • closing the mobility:
    • Certificate of Attendance
    • Transcript of Records: there is no form for this document, it is issued by the host institution, contains all the courses completed and their credit value.

2. Partner universities in Switzerland with Erasmus+ scholarship

From 2022, the following Erasmus+ mobility opportunities are available to certain Swiss partners as well:

  • Long-term study abroad mobility
  • Short-term doctoral mobility

You can apply to these partners as detailed in the call for application of the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility program. With that application you apply for SEMP and Erasmus+ scholarship at the same time. Submitting an SEMP application (via Neptun) is not necessary in the case of these partners!

Awarded students can receive SEMP and Erasmus+ scholarship at the same time. Awarded Erasmus+ students can apply for Erasmus+ additional support as well.

For more information regarding this application, please check the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility program website.

XI. Intercultural preparation

The intercultural preparation course prepares students for the cultural, intercultural challenges may occure during their mobility period with the help of professors of the Institute of Intercultural Psychology and Education. Read more about the course.

XII. Force majeure

If your mobility fails due to the COVID-19 epidemiological situation or serious illness and costs associated with mobility (booking / insurance / flight ticket) have already been incurred an individual equity claim (force majeure) can be submitted to cover them.

If you have to interrupt the physical part of your mobility due to changes in the COVID-19 epidemiological situation or serious illness, you can also submit the individual equity claim (force majeure) to request to your proportional scholarship for the period spent physically abroad and reimburse your extra costs occured due to the interruption. Please note that the monthly scholarship is granted only for the period spent physically abroad.
