1. What should I do if I am interested in studying as an exchange ERASMUS+ student at the University of Economics in Bratislava?
The first and important step in the entire registration process is an official nomination.
Contact your Erasmus coordinator and apply for the official approval based on a valid bilateral agreement.
The official nomination of a foreign student must include:
- Erasmus+ code of the university (only EU countries, including Turkey),
- Name and surname,
- Student nationality,
- Date of birth,
- E-mail address,
- Period of exchange (Summer/Winter).
The student's nomination must be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by the nomination deadline of the respective academic year.
This information also applies to students not involved in the Erasmus+ program.
2. How can I apply when I was nominated for an exchange semester abroad?
Foreign students of ERASMUS + are registered, i.e. they fill out the required application documents online via www.studyabroad.sk by the application deadline of the respective academic year. The online registration manual will be emailed to students after the official approval.
Foreign students outside the ERASMUS + programme will submit the required application documents by e-mail to email@example.com by the application deadline of the respective academic year.
3. Do I need to forward the application documents by post?
No, we do not require forwarding the required application documents by mail. We only accept online applications to make the process more effective.
4. How many credits can I obtain per semester or two-semester study?
The sending university will determine how many credits you need to obtain during your studies.
According to the general principles of Erasmus + (also for students outside Erasmus +):
1 semester = 30 credits
2 semesters = 60 credits
5. How can I enroll in the offered subjects?
Foreign students enroll in online courses through the Academic Information System (AIS).
The catalog of subjects offered in the winter and summer semesters of the respective academic year will be emailed to the students along with the online registration manual 1-2 weeks before the start of each round.
The schedule of individual online registration rounds:
1st round: May
2nd round: June
3rd round: 2 weeks from the official start of the semester
6. Can I combine a selection of subjects of different faculties and different languages of the lectures?
Information about the faculty and the language of the lectures is only supplementary information that serves for a better orientation of the foreign student in the list of subjects offered.
The student can combine subjects of other faculties, as well as of different languages of the lectures in the current list of subjects offered. (The current catalogue of subjectswill be sent to the students by email).
It is also important to consult the selection of subjects with the sending university.
7. How to proceed when a subject is already full?
Each subject has a maximum number (limit) of accepted students. The limits are set by the faculties of the University of Economics in Bratislava.
If the subject is full, it is necessary to replace it with another subject from the current list of subjects.
A consultation with the teacher is also possible, but it is not possible to guarantee that the student will be additionally accepted after the limits have been reached.
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?
The timetable is published 1 - 2 weeks before the official start of the semester and is forwarded to foreign students by e-mail.
10. How do I apply for an exam?
The teacher himself/herself will determine how to apply for the exam, either online (via AIS), or the the exam term will be announced to the student directly by the teacher with no need for an online registration.
In case it is necessary to register for the exam in the AIS system, please see the video manuals for further details.
11. Is attendance for lectures and seminars mandatory?
Attendance is mandatory, according to the fixed timetable. Information on attendance (attendance, absences), further exams, and final assessments are provided to students on the very first teaching day.
12. When I refuse to stay at STUDENT RESIDENCE INCHEBA, is there a possibility to stay at another dormitory of the University of Economics in Bratislava?
No, it is not possible. ERASMUS+ foreign students are offered accommodation at the private residence of STUDENT RESIDENCE INCHEBA.
The University of Economics in Bratislava does not guarantee the provision of additional accommodation to a foreign student in case that he/she rejects the offer.
13. How long does it take for an ISIC card to be issued?
If all required documents are forwarded by a student prior to his/her arrival, the card can be picked up immediately upon the arrival to the University.
If the required documents are forwarded by a student after their arrival, the waiting period is 5 to 7 days.
14. When will students receive the schedule of sports activities?
The schedule of sports activities (free of charge) is usually sent only after the compulsory registration of Slovak students, 3 to 4 weeks from the start of the semester.
According to the schedule, it is possible to attend the selected sports activities directly (without the need for additional registration) and at the same time, it is necessary to prove one of the identification cards (ISIC/STUDENT CARD) issued by the University of Economics in Bratislava.
15. How can I ask for my buddy?
Students can ask for a buddy via online registration. Each of the students can be provided with a buddy managed by the Erasmus Student Network EU Bratislava via online registration. In case of any doubts, do not hesitate to contact the ESN EU Bratislava by email.
16. Do I need to visit the International Mobility Department prior to my departure? If so, when?
Each foreign student is required to visit the International Mobility Department 4 to 5 days before the official departure date.
Based on the real departure date, the student will be handed a Letter of Confirmation on arrival and departure immediately upon request.
17. How will my University's Transcript of Records be sent to me?
The Transcript of Records is forwarded to the partner university (and the student as an attached copy) by e-mail, and then the original document is sent by mail after the semester has officially ended.

The required English level at our university is B2. We do not require any certificate, confirmation from your home university about the English level, confirmed by your coordinator is sufficient.
