Employ­ees of which high­er edu­ca­tion schools and which coun­tries can par­tic­i­pate in the Eras­mus pro­gram­me?
Uni­ver­si­ty employ­ees enti­tled to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram­me are the cit­i­zens of the above men­tioned coun­tries, as well as per­sons who have the per­ma­nent res­i­dence card or the refugee sta­tus in one of the­se coun­tries.
An aca­d­e­mic teacher may use the pos­si­bil­i­ties the Eras­mus pro­gram­me gives if the uni­ver­si­ty employ­ing him/her par­tic­i­pates in this pro­gram­me, i.e. holds the Eras­mus Uni­ver­si­ty Chart, obtained from the Euro­pean Com­mit­tee, and it signed an agree­ment with the Nation­al Agen­cy for employ­ee exchange in a given aca­d­e­mic year.
More infor­ma­tion about the rules of the Eras­mus pro­gram­me and pos­si­bil­i­ties offered to dif­fer­ent groups of recip­i­ents you can find at:, click “eras­mus”, sec­tion “Infor­ma­c­je dla uczel­ni” (infor­ma­tion for uni­ver­si­ties), or at the Euro­pean Com­mit­tee web­site.

Aca­d­e­mic teacher exchange with for­eign uni­ver­si­ties or oth­er insti­tu­tions
The Eras­mus exchange is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to check and devel­op one’s com­pe­ten­cies, allows to make new con­tacts with aca­d­e­mic char­ac­ter and to ini­ti­ate an inter­est­ing coop­er­a­tion with for­eign uni­ver­si­ties or oth­er insti­tu­tions where aca­d­e­mic teach­ers go.
Aca­d­e­mic teach­ers can go abroad to the uni­ver­si­ties, with which their moth­er uni­ver­si­ties (fac­ul­ties) have signed the aca­d­e­mic teacher exchange agree­ments, being part of the Eras­mus pro­gram­me, in order to con­duct class­es for stu­dents (lec­tures, sem­i­nars, work­shop).
The stay at a for­eign uni­ver­si­ty may last from a few days to 6 weeks. If the stay lasts one week or short­er, the teacher is oblig­ed to con­duct at least 5 hours of class­es.
Before leav­ing for the exchange, the teacher is oblig­ed to spec­i­fy the planned Teach­ing Pro­gram­me for the for­eign uni­ver­si­ty, which must be accept­ed by the moth­er and host uni­ver­si­ties.

What cri­te­ria should be met?
While qual­i­fy­ing the can­di­dates for the exchange the uni­ver­si­ties are oblig­ed to take two cri­te­ria into con­sid­er­a­tion:

The can­di­da­cies of the employ­ees who apply for the exchange for the first time or of the per­son­nel with short­er pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence should be treat­ed as pri­or­i­ties. The uni­ver­si­ties may use addi­tion­al cri­te­ria con­gru­ent with the adapt­ed employ­ee pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment pol­i­cy.

Where to apply for the Eras­mus exchange?
You can apply for the Eras­mus exchange only in the place of employ­ment. It is the high­er edu­ca­tion schools that put for­ward a motion for funds for the exchange for the employ­ees, qual­i­fy the can­di­dates, spec­i­fy the amount of the schol­ar­ships and pay the schol­ar­ships. The recruit­ment of the can­di­dates takes place in the aca­d­e­mic year pre­ced­ing the exchange, usu­al­ly ear­ly spring.
The detailed infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty to par­tic­i­pate in the Eras­mus pro­gram­me and the coop­er­a­tion with part­ners in dif­fer­ent coun­tries offered by your uni­ver­si­ty you can obtain from the uni­ver­si­ty (fac­ul­ty) Eras­mus coor­di­na­tor or the for­eign office employ­ees.

What are the finan­cial con­di­tions of the exchange?
The schol­ar­ship paid from the Eras­mus pro­gram­me bud­get allows to cov­er part of the costs con­nect­ed with the trav­el and liv­ing abroad. The amount of the mon­ey for stay­ing abroad as part of the Eras­mus pro­gram­me depends on the length of the stay and is cal­cu­lat­ed on the basis of the speci­fic dai­ly and week­ly sums refer­ring to the costs of liv­ing in the sep­a­rate coun­tries.
The rates of The Life­long Learn­ing Pro­gram­me are given at the Foun­da­tion for the Devel­op­ment of the Edu­ca­tion Sys­tem web­site in the doc­u­ment “Zaprosze­nie do składa­nia wniosków w roku 2007” (Invi­ta­tion to apply in 2007), part 2 (table 5a, p. 26).
Costs of trav­el: with the Eras­mus pro­gram­me you can cov­er the real costs of trav­el to the max­i­mum amount spec­i­fied in the doc­u­ment given above.
Costs of liv­ing (and insur­ance) can­not be high­er than the max­i­mum rates from the pro­gram­me.
Per­sons with a high dis­abil­i­ty degree may apply for addi­tion­al means for the exchange from the spe­cial Eras­mus pro­gram­me fund for dis­abled per­sons.
