GENERAL INFORMATION ON OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF STAFF AND STUDENTS OF BELGRADE UNIVERSITY
Belgrade University offers its students and staff a number of possibilities for temporary academic and professional development abroad through various forms of academic mobility. Student mobility involves a period of study abroad which can last for either one or two semesters during one level of studies. During this period, students remain enrolled in Belgrade University, where they resume their studies after the period of mobility, after which they obtain the diploma of Belgrade University. The ECTS credits earned abroad are recognized by Belgrade University after the student returns, in accordance with The Rulebook of Mobility, particular rules of the exchange, and with complete and appropriate documentation (e.g., learning agreement written and signed before mobility, transcript of grades issued by the partner university after the mobility has been successfully completed).
Teaching staff are offered opportunities for shorter stays for teaching activities, and there are also professional development opportunities for administration staff.
Important: Each candidate is responsible for getting informed about the rules of the specific form or program of mobility, application requirements, general mobility rules of both universities, all in accordance with their status. Each scholarship holder is required to take care of their status during mobility and obtain consent from the school of Belgrade University they attend in accordance with that specific form of mobility.
The three most common forms of mobility for candidates from Belgrade University are bilateral agreement mobility, CEEPUS program mobility, and certainly the most popular one – Erasmus+ program.

CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) is the program of academic exchange of students and teachers among countries of Central and East Europe based on the international agreement signed by Austria, Albania, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Croatia, North Macedonia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia.
Student exchange is realized within university networks, each of which focuses on a certain number of subject areas. Cooperation is based on the correspondence between institutes and schools/faculties of universities active in the same subject area.
Student scholarships mean that students are exempt from paying tuition fees and they receive a certain amount for subsistence expenses. The amount depends on the country to which the student travels.
Important: Applications are submitted exclusively through the official internet platform. Before applying, students and teachers should contact the national CEEPUS office and program coordinators at their institution of Belgrade University. More information on the program, the list of national CEEPUS offices, and instructions for application can be found on the official internet platform of CEEPUS: www.ceepus.info

This form of cooperation is based on agreements between Belgrade University and partner universities from other countries. There are various agreements but they all usually exempt students from paying tuition fees without other expenses being covered. Nevertheless, all candidates who would like to apply for this kind of mobility are expected to first get informed about specific conditions of cooperation defined by a particular agreement.
Students and staff can apply for mobility based on bilateral cooperation at the latest at the beginning of one semester for the next semester at their institution of Belgrade University, with permission of the ECTS coordinator of their institution.
Important: Each candidate is required to get informed on the application requirements and mobility based on the specific agreement before they apply for the specific program.
