Financial Support – Overseas

Basic Information

The exchange of students between VSE and its partner universities overseas is not realized in the frame of some international programme but is based solely on individual agreements between universities. Based on these agreements, students do not pay tuition fees at VSE partner universities. In addition, they receive a grant for study abroad from VSE. Scholarship is not claimable.

Grant for study abroad

VSE provides the grant for a study abroad overseas from the Scholarship fund of VSE, eventually from other resources, in the following amount:

  • 10 000 CZK for each month of stay (the length of the mobility is calculated taking into account every ½ month of the academic calendar of the partner university)
  • plus 10 000 CZK as a one-off grant for air ticket/visa.

Students who were selected to spend a semester abroad at a partner university overseas will receive this grant automatically.

 Payment of the scholarship

  • The grant is transferred to the bank account stated in InSIS. The bank account must be of a Czech financial institution.
  • Currency in which scholarship is paid: CZK.
  • The bank account information in InSIS (Student’s portal ->  Bank accounts).
    • Select Purpose of bank account: For trip abroad benefit pay-outs. Fill in all information including the name and address of the bank account owner.
  • The grant is paid in a single payment before/at the beginning of the mobility.
  • Payment of the scholarship is conditioned by:
    • The completion of all the administrative steps before the mobility.
    • If you study at VSE a programme taught in a foreign language, for which tuition fee is required, the payment of the scholarship is conditioned by VSE having obtained the tuition fee for the corresponding semester/academic year. The payment of the tuition fee does not have to be proved to the International Office as the coordinators at the International Office do have this information in InSIS.

Some students will receive the grant other way and from other resources – these students will be informed by their coordinator.

Some VSE faculties provide a supplementary grant from their faculty scholarship fund for students who were selected to spend a semester abroad.

Other funding options

  • Students might gain an additional scholarship directly from their VSE faculty, depending on the study abroad destination. (Up-to-date information is to be found on the website of the specific faculty and/or at the Vice-deans for academic affairs and international relations.)
  • Sometimes, it is possible to get funding directly from the host university, from the embassy of the host country in the Czech Republic or on the respective portal “Study in…”.
  • Additional funding might be also gained from some organization/institution/fund/foundation supporting study abroad (some tips can be found here).
