ERASMUS+ KA1 International Credit Mobility for students

(Studying abroad – short mobility)


By studying abroad with Erasmus+, you can improve your communication, language, and inter-cultural skills and gain soft skills highly valued by future employers.

Opportunities are available for students at Bachelor, Master or Doctoral levels.



Your study period abroad can last from a minimum of 3 months (or 1 academic term or trimester) to a maximum of 12 months.

You can benefit from an exchange abroad with Erasmus+ multiple times, either as a student or as a trainee, but your total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle (BA, MA, or PhD) study.



To study abroad with Erasmus+, you must be registered in a higher education institution in Kosovo. For students in the first cycle (Bachelor), you need to be at least in the second year of your studies.

Your home institution and the receiving institution must have an inter-institutional agreement between them for you to study there with Erasmus+.


Academic recognition

Before the study abroad period:

  1. You, your sending and receiving higher education institutions must sign a Learning Agreement for Studies to ensure a transparent and efficient preparation of the exchange abroad, as well as to agree on how activities successfully completed abroad will be recognized.
  2. You will receive the Erasmus+ Student Charter, explaining your rights and obligations with respect to your period of study abroad.


After the study abroad period:

  1. The receiving higher education institution must provide you and your sending institution with a transcript of records confirming that the agreed programme has been completed and acknowledge the results
  2. Your higher education institution must recognize the credits (using ECTS credits or an equivalent system) as agreed in the Learning Agreement before the mobility and count them towards your degree, without any further requirements


Financial support

You may receive an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to your travel and subsistence costs. It may vary according to differences in living costs between Kosovo and the destination country, the number of students applying for a grant, the distance between countries and the availability of other grants.

Grant levels and fixed rates for exchanges between Programme and Partner countries are published in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.


How to apply

You can apply through the international or Erasmus+ office of your higher education institution in Kosovo.

You should be selected by your sending higher education institution in a fair and transparent way.

Students with physical, mental or health-related conditions may apply for additional funding after they have been selected for a mobility period.
