Erasmus+ faculty competition for academic year 2024/2025 - application period prolonged to 16th February 2024

Erasmus + faculty competition

The whole administrative procedure for the preparation of both types of Erasmus+ student exchange stays (Study stays and Traineeships) is described on the Rectorate UK website. You can also check the document Erasmus in 10 steps. Please read the following instructions carefully.

The first step is to fill in the Erasmus+ application (please fill it on a computer, not by hand):

The audition for the academic year 2024/2025 will take place on 29th of February 2024 in the auditoriums (doors 2109 and 2111) of the Deanery of LF1 (entrance to the building from Na Bojišti street):

  • at 13:30 for students of general medicine and dentistry

You will receive the exact time of your interview by email approximately one week before the audition.

You can apply for a study stay or a traineeship or take advantage of both offers. 

Partner Universities:

The number of months indicated is the maximum length of stay, the minimum length is 2 months (60 days). Please check carefully the website of the university you are interested in to see if their course offer match your requirements/ideas (the specific semester, not just the academic year, also plays a role).

It is now also possible to go on a traineeship to institutions with which we do not have a bilateral agreement, i.e. any institution within the European Union, with the exception of institutions directly funded by the EU (e.g. the European Parliament). Traineeship is understood as a work placement/work for a foreign university or other institution (company, organization, self-employed person, etc.) related to the field of study at LF1. You should work at least 30-40 hours per week on a traineeship. A student can go abroad for a traineesship for at least 2 months and for a maximum of 12 months.

If applying for a traineeship at a "non-partner" university, you should have the traineeship already pre-arranged at the time of the faculty competition and provide a preliminary email consent with the application.

You can search for traineeships here: ERASMUSINTERN |


The application form signed by the student should be submitted to the International Office of LF1 in person (2nd floor, door 2057) or by email to

- Applications should be submitted from 4th December 2023 to 16th February 2024


Please do not forget to include mandatory language certificates.

Before handing in the application, please check carefully the foreign university's website for requirements on language certificates. In case of applying for the winter semester of the academic year 2024/2025, the certificate will be a compulsory part of the application for the audition. For the summer semester, mandatory certificates must be delivered by the 31st May 2024 to the International Office.

Up to three foreign universities in the preferred order may be included in the application. You can apply for the winter or summer semester, or the whole academic year (if a bilateral agreement allows). 

The Committee of LF1 evaluates applicants according to the following criteria:


Academic average (50% of the evaluation):

For general and dental medicine students the academic average in the last two completed years of study.

Language and professional level at interview (25%):

The interview is carried in the language of instruction of your first preferred university.

Professional activities beyond the study requirements (25%):

In case of a combination of several activities, the highest ranked activity will be counted, the other activities will be applied with a reduced coefficient:

· Scientific activity linked to the presentation of results, scientific activity not yet concluded with the presentation of results, lecturing or demonstrator activity within the faculty

· Activity in the Faculty's organisational units (Academic Senate, Dean's Collegium, contribution to the writing of the Wikiskript)


· Active participation in interest groups of individual disciplines, main coordinating activity in student associations and organizations

Forms for confirmation of professional activities:

The results of the audition will be published on the faculty's website in the News and „Erasmus+ News and Events“ section several days after the audition. Each student must confirm (by email to his/her approval with the study stay/traineeship together with the chosen semester within one week from the result of the audition.

Only after you have received an email confirmation that your nomination has been sent to the foreign university, you should create your application in the online application of Charles University (webapps) -and then follow the steps described on the website of the European Office of the Rectorate of Charles University.


If the candidate is unable to attend the audition due to serious, especially health reasons, his/her inability to attend the audition must be specifically certified. In such cases the candidate will be allowed to attend an individual interview on an alternative date.

Repeated foreign stays within the Erasmus+ programme are possible. 

The maximum lengths allowed for Erasmus stays are:

  • 12 months at each level of study in the case of study programs divided into three cycles (Bc., Mgr., Ph.D.)
  • 24 months in the case of long master study programs for 5 or 6 years, but at the level of Ph.D. it's only 12 months.

Erasmus for PhD students

Ph.D. students go on Erasmus mostly for traineeship at a university/workplace they find on their own or in cooperation with their supervisor.

PhD students can also apply for Erasmus+ traineeship abroad later in the year, after the faculty audition itself, if funds are available and if the deadlines of the respective foreign university allow.

In addition to the traditional Erasmus traineeship of at least 60 days (2 months), PhD students can now also apply for short-term Erasmus mobility of 5-30 days if the host institution agrees to a short-term placement. The financial support is EUR 70/day for days 1-14 of mobility and EUR 50/day for days 15-30 of mobility.

The Erasmus PhD application form is available here.
