Exchange student program

The Medical University of Warsaw works with 62 foreign universities within the LLP-Erasmus program and with 15 foreign universities within the CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies). Participation in these projects gives students the chance to gain new European experience and prepare better for their future careers.

 

The main objective of the LLP-Erasmus program is to create an "open space" between European universities, to allow free exchange of students and teachers as well as research and teaching experience. LLP-Erasmus is also an opportunity to experience new environments, to start cooperation within the framework of the European Union and to improve knowledge of foreign languages. Students going to partner universities follow a program of study  appropriate to their home institution established on the basis of the "Learning Agreement" (the officially approved plan of study) approved by a Coordinator of the LLP-Erasmus. The approved plan becomes mandatory for a semester or a year. Missing subjects are made up

for after returning from scholarship. Examinations, practical classes and courses done abroad are valued according to the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). Obtaining 30 or 60 points is equivalent to obtaining a credit for the semester.

 

Additional offer for undergraduate and graduate students of the Medical University of Warsaw is a 3-month international practice within the Erasmus Program. The practice can be done in foreign academic and non-academic institutions (hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, etc.) in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and the countries of the European Union. Since 2012, the practice can also be done in Switzerland and Malta.

 

The aim of the CEEPUS program is to help students of the cooperating universities in the implementation of joint research projects, research for master's theses and doctoral research or to complete student’s research during clerkship. Within the project "Developing a network for monitoring the impact of environmental and nutritional factors on fertility and neonatal health" future doctors have the possibility to stay in the medical schools in Albania (Tirana), Bulgaria (Varna), Croatia (Rijeka), Czech Republic (Ostrava, Prague), Romania (Brasov, Constanta, Bucharest), Serbia (Novi Sad), Slovakia (Nitra), Slovenia (Ljubljana) and Hungary (Pecs).


Apart from participation in LLP-Erasmus and CEEPUS programs, the International Relations Office helps students and young researchers get scholarships from other organizations:
