Basic information about ERASMUSERASMUS programme (subprogramme of Life-Long Learning Programme of European Commission) is by far the most popular exchange scheme within European countries.
The Faculty of Social Studies, Masaryk University has signed more than 130 exchange agreements with specific institutions of higher education in 23 countries - our students and employees can use them to study and work abroad. Incoming students and colleagues are equally welcome - a good thing to know: International Student Club at Masaryk University (ISC MU) was awarded the STARlight prize for the most active section at the international level, out of 343 sections in 33 countries.
If you want to come for exchange to Brno, you must be selected by your home university first, on the basis of the agreements signed for a particular number of exchanged students in the concrete field of study.
At Masaryk University, ERASMUS is coordinated at the level of departments and faculties, but centrally, it is administered at the level of whole-university Office for International Studies. If you are a student of FSS MU, first, you will have to get a nomination from your departmental coordinator. Both whole-university and faculty/departmental coordinators are listed below.
