If you are interested in spending a semester or two as an exchange student at the University of Ostrava, first you should contact the Erasmus Coordinator at your home institution. There needs to be a bilateral agreement between your home university and a faculty of the University of Ostrava under the Erasmus+ Programme.
Kindly note that the application procedure must be completed before the deadlines listed below. Unfortunately placement in the programme and accommodation cannot be guaranteed after these deadlines:
You will receive the confirmed documents and you will be provided with other relevant information concerning your studies, including detailed information on your chosen courses.
The International Student Club of the University of Ostrava runs a Buddy Programme; this means that a Buddy student will be arranged for you. He/she will try to make your arrival in Ostrava and your settling-in period as easy as possible. It is important to inform the International Student Club in advance about your exact arrival time in Ostrava, so that the details about your pick-up can be specified. It is recommended to come to Ostrava on a weekday (Monday to Friday). A week before the beginning of the semester there is always an Orientation Week for Erasmus students organized by our International Student Club. For detailed information about the club, please click isc.osu.eu.
On your arrival day you will be met by your Buddy. He/she will help you to reach your accommodation and deal with the very first formalities required in the student halls of residence. He/she will help you find your way to the faculty building and the International Relations Office, and he/she will familiarise you with your new academic environment. He/she will also provide you with further instructions on how to get a Student Identification Card, access to the University Library, dining halls, computer rooms etc.
