Individual research stay
If you would like to undertake exchange studies at the Jagiellonian University but your home university does not have any partnership agreements with us, then you may apply for an individual research stay.
Students/ PhD candidates who are not entitled to apply for the Erasmus+ programme (for example if they have already used their mobility capital) may apply for an individual research stay.
The duration and programme of the research stay is always agreed upon individually with the applicant on the basis of their specific needs and interests.
An individual research stay is not a scholarship programme, therefore participants will not receive any allowance from the Jagiellonian University. Moreover, if they plan to take part in courses, then they might be obliged to pay tuition fees.
Students/ PhD candidates carrying out individual research stays at the Jagiellonian University are not granted student’s status. They are treated as researchers at our institution.
A successful application should include the following documents:
- written request to the head of the desired institute stating the precise time of the planned stay and motivation
- research plan/study plan
- curriculum vitae
- letter of recommendation from home university
- signed legal notice of data security for admission
These documents should be sent via e-mail, not later than 2 months before the start of the planned research stay to the following mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org
All applicants will be informed about the outcome of their application via e-mail.
The tuition fee for an individual research stay is determined by the Rector on a case by case basis.
Tuition fees should be transferred to the University bank account after the candidates have received a confirmation of admission from the International Students Mobility Office.
The fee does not cover accommodation or board costs.
