  • The financial support consists of a travel grant based on the distance between the university and the guest’s workplace and an individual support (grant category for Slovakia).

  • The invited guest prepares his/her Mobility Agreement Staff Mobility For Teaching in co-operation with the inviting workplace, ensures the necessary signature at his/her workplace and sends the document to the International Relations Office.

Agreement on Providing Financial Support (Financial Agreement)

  • The invited guest will be contacted by the International Relations Office before the mobility, and will be asked to provide the exact dates of travel and mobility activity, and his/her bank account details. 
  • The IRO prepares the guest’s financial agreement only when:

    • the guest announces the exact dates of his/her mobility
  • The financial agreement is signed after the arrival of the guest, and 100% of the grant will be transferred to the guest, or he/she will be able to receive his/her grant in cash at the cash desk of the university as soon as s/he signs the financial agreement.
