The call for CEEPUS network mobility applications for the upcoming academic 2021-2022 year is now open. CEEPUS provides students and academic staff from eligible universities and colleges with the opportunity to apply for a university exchange abroad.
National CEEPUS Office in Serbia invites interested students and teaching staff from the CEEPUS participating countries to apply for a CEEPUS mobility in Serbia. Furthermore, international students and academic staff who are not citizens of a CEEPUS member country, currently studying or working at public higher education institutions in Serbia, are also welcomed to apply for mobility at a CEEPUS member state. However, before applying, those candidates will need to obtain a document called the “Equal status” document. More information can be found on the CEEPUS website. The deadlines for application are June 15 for network mobility in the first/winter semester and October 31 for network mobility in the second/summer semester.
There are three types of CEEPUS student mobility:
- Student: credit mobility for students who have completed at least two semesters of studies. The minimum length of this mobility type is three months;
- Short-term student: for students working on their thesis/dissertation, allows stays shorter than three months;
- Short-term excursion: for participants of short group mobilities such as CEEPUS summer or winter schools, the maximum length is six days.
Scholarships are also available for teaching staff employed at higher education institutions, which take part in the CEEPUS networks. Teachers can undertake a teaching period at another network university or college in the minimum length of 5 working days. During that period, the teaching staff is requested to have six teachings/supervising hours per working week. Academic staff always choose the Teacher category when applying, regardless of the duration of mobility. electronically
Applications should be submitted online through the CEEPUS platform. Before applying, candidates browse the list of CEEPUS networks and search for an appropriate one. To apply for network mobility, the candidate’s home and host institution must be part of the same network. The complete list of CEEPUS networks for 2020-2021 and its participating institutions is available here.
Since each participating country provides grants for its incoming candidates, the amount and the scope of the scholarship awarded can vary depending on the country. Therefore, it is recommended that candidates get familiar with the terms and conditions before applying. More information about the scholarship rates and contact details of all NCOs are available here.
