ERASMUS+ for STUDIES

Dear International Students,

The information below is intended to lead you through the application process and help you prepare for an Erasmus stay at the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin.

 

STEP 1. – CHECK THE STUDYING POSSIBILITIES

If you would like to spend a semester or an academic year in West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, Poland, please make sure that your home university has signed an Erasmus bilateral agreement with us. This information is usually provided by the Erasmus coordinator at your home university (central and/or faculty level). Please check also the areas of study for which the agreement is valid – generally student flows are realised within the areas specified in the agreement. However, if you are interested in courses in a study area not included in the agreement, we will try to do our best to make your stay possible. In that case you can send your inquiry to the International Mobility Office, e-mail: incoming@zut.edu.pl

Before you submit your application, please check the availability of courses taught in English at the hosting faculty. Should you have any doubts or questions, please contact our faculty coordinators.

The on-line application deadlines are as follows:
•    31 May – for winter semester or full academic year
•    30 November – for summer semester

 

STEP 2. – PREPARE YOUR ONLINE LEARNING AGREEMENT

There are three ways to prepare LA:

1.       You will receive a link to a prefilled OLA. This will already contain basic info, such as the email addresses of your coordinator and the coordinator from the host university.

2.       Start creating OLA by yourself. Go to https://learning-agreement.eu/   Here you will find instruction how to creating a OLA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paIKpHJvTlg

3.       Traditional paper version of LA. Use the LA template (format:  docx, rozmiar:  77 KB). After completion, the document should be signed by the student and the responsible person from sending university. The signed document should be attached in the IRK system (tab "required documents").

At a later date (2 weeks before your arrival at the latest) you will be notified about the address of your dormitory and contact details of your student buddy. Accomodation letter for non EU students will be send with Acceptance letter.
Student buddies are local students registered at the host faculty (if possible) ready to offer you their assistance upon arrival. You can ask them to pick you up from the station, show you around the hosting faculty, university and town, help with necessary formalities etc. They will also answer any questions about studying conditions and student life that may arise before your arrival.
