Foreign students who want to add an international dimension to their degrees can apply to undertake a short-term stay for studies (a semester or an academic year), research or traineeship at the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice (UPJŠ), also as free movers – i.e. independently, without being part of a specific scholarship/exchange programme (e.g. Erasmus+, National Scholarship Programme, International Visegrad Fund, CEEPUS etc.)
Free movers do not get any scholarship/grant from the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice does not require any tuition fees from free movers.
Free movers must be officially enrolled in a degree program at their home university during the application procedure and during the whole period of their free mover stay at our university.
We prefer students from member countries of the European Higher Education Area.
