Study mobilities:

  • Recommended duration: one semester
  • Host university: study mobilities can only take place at universities with which UPT has signed agreements in the field of study of the applicant. The main criteria for choosing the host university should be the compatibility between the curricula at UPT and the academic offer of the partner universities.

  • How to find placements: see the links from this section.

Special needs support:

A person with special needs is a potential participant whose individual physical, mental or health-related situation is such that his/her participation in the project / mobility Action would not be possible without extra financial support. Higher education institutions that have selected students and/or staff with special needs can apply for additional grant support to the National Agency in order to cover the supplementary costs for their participation in the mobility activities. The additional costs covered should be directly related to participants with disabilities and accompanying persons(including costs related to travel and subsistence, if justified and as long as a grant for these participants is not requested through budget categories "travel" and "individual support"). For persons with special needs, the grant support may therefore be higher than the maximum individual grant amounts set out above. As regards the accompanying persons for students and staff with special needs, they are entitled to receive a contribution as foreseen for the mobility of staff (if the total duration of the stay abroad of the accompanying person is up to 60 days) or as foreseen for the mobility of students (if the total duration of the stay abroad is above 60 days). For more details, we advise you to contact DRI.

Selection criteria:

  • Academic results (0-30 points)
  • Language abilities (10 points for mobilities taking place in the language of the host country. Up to 20 points according to the language certificate included in the application file, as follows: A1 - 10 points, A2 - 12 points, B1 - 14 points, B2 - 16 points, C1 - 18 points, C2 - 20 points).
