1. What should I do if I am interested in studying at the University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA) as an Erasmus+ exchange student?

Students who wish to study at EUBA within the Erasmus+ framework must be officially nominated by their home university.

The departmental coordinator or the International Office of your home university are responsible for nominating students for exchange at EUBA. Please contact them for more information.

The official nomination of a foreign student must include:

  • Erasmus+ code of the sending university (applicable to EU, EEA, Switzerland and Turkey)
  • Full name

  • E-mail address
  • Period of exchange (Summer/Winter)

The nomination must be submitted via e-mail to incoming@euba.sk by the following deadlines:

  • 15 May for the winter semester
  • 30 September for the summer semester

This nominating process is also applicable to students from other bilateral/partnership agreement programs.

2. What comes next if my home university has nominated me for exchange at EUBA?

As soon as your home university nominates you, our International Mobility Department will send you information regarding how to file an application.

Incoming Erasmus+ students from the EU (including Turkey) should apply online via www.studyabroad.sk before the application deadline stated as follows. An online registration manual will be sent to you by e-mail to guide you through this process. Students OUT of EU will send mentioned documents (Filled application form, Learning Agreement, Confirmation of language proficiency) to incoming@euba.sk by the application deadline of the respective academic year.

No. To facilitate the application process, the entire application will be conducted and reviewed digitally. It is therefore not necessary to send us any hard copies by mail.

4. How many credits should I obtain?

Please ask your home university how many credit points you have to gain during your stay at EUBA. Generally speaking, exchange students are expected to attend a full course load at the host university, i.e. 30 ECTS per semester. It is mandatory by EUBA to have at least 3 courses registered in your AIS system, no matter the faculty, degree or credits.   

5. How do I register for my courses?

Exchange students register for the courses they have selected via the Academic Information System (AIS). You will receive the List of courses along with the online registration manual 1 –2 weeks before the start of each registration period.

    2nd round: June

    3rd round: the first two weeks of the semester

6. Can I take courses in different subject areas and of different languages?

Yes. You are allowed to select courses in different subject areas and of different languages, however, only from our List of courses. It is important that you consult with your home university about your course selection and only register for courses that are listed in your Online Learning Agreement (OLA)/Learning Agreement.

7. What if the course of my choice is FULL?

Each course at EUBA has a limited number of places available for registration. This number is determined by the respective faculty.

If a maximum number of students has been reached, you can either select another course or contact the respective teacher to request permission to enroll. Please note that there is no guarantee that you will be given an additional place.

8. How to proceed when subjects overlap (lessons at the same time)?

In such a case, it is necessary to replace the subject with another one.

A consultation with the teacher is also possible, but there is no guarantee that the teacher will be able to change the timetable and/or accept you to the course without any supplementary work.9. When will the course schedule be published?

Course schedule is published 1 – 2 weeks before the official start of the semester. You will receive it by e-mail.

10. How do I sign up for an exam?

The exam registration procedure varies from one course to another. You can register for an exam online via the AIS platform, in person, or without doing anything (in this case you will be automatically registered), depending on your teacher’s requirements.

11. Is attendance mandatory at EUBA?

Yes. You are expected to be regular and punctual in class attendance and to fully participate in the course. Information about minimum attendance requirements and related issues will be available at the beginning of the semester and provided by the teacher.

You can apply for a buddy by ticking the corresponding box in your online application. You will be assigned a buddy by the Erasmus Student Network EU Bratislava. Do not hesitate to contact them by e-mail if you have questions about the buddy program. More information can be found here.

16. Do I need to visit the International Mobility Department prior to my departure? If so, when?
