HOW TO APPLY FOR A MOBILITY
Your first step is to find out if a public call for applications is currently open at UNS. You can do so by checking:
- The NEWS AND OPPORTUNITIES section which is regularly updated with the latest open calls;
- UNS website
Next, pinpoint the opportunities that are relevant for you – look for the list of mobilities available for students of Faculty of Sciences, your study field and planned level of study during mobility (BSc, MSc or PhD).
Then, read carefully Pravilnik o učešću UNSa u Erazmus+ projektima mobilnosti and Pravilnik o mobilnosti studenata i priznavanju perioda mobilnosti. Please follow all instructions of the call closely!
- Required documents: forms should be filled out electronically, printed out, signed, then scanned (where signatures are needed); documents that need translating (like your transcript of records) must be translated by a certified court interpreter.
- Applications are submitted by email, in the requested form. All documents should be in .pdf format, and sent in a single .zip file.
- Be aware of the deadline! Collecting the required documents may take some time, and late submissions won’t be considered.
You can apply for a maximum of two mobilities in one call, and only get selected for one!
In order to make the most of your mobility, it is important to compile a comprehensive learning agreement. First, go to the web site of the desired host university and look for the curriculum that corresponds most to your curriculum at Faculty of Sciences. Then, check what courses are available during the period you would spend at the host institution. Draw up a suggested list of courses that best match what you would be studying here. You can choose other courses too – any academic achievement during your mobility will be recognized and at least go into your diploma supplement.
After you have compiled a list of courses, get in touch with your departmental academic coordinator(s). They will give the final word and suggest any changes you should make for an optimal academic achievement.
Once the academic coordinator has approved your learning agreement, you are ready to apply for mobility. During the application stage, the learning agreement is considered to be a proposal. If you are selected, the proposed learning agreement becomes a valid document, and needs to be signed by all three parties before your mobility begins!
Changes to the learning agreement are possible during the mobility, if they are justified. Changes are entered into CHANGES DURING MOBILITY part of the form, and verified by academic coordinators’ signatures.
