Application documents for Erasmus+ student exchange and Erasmus+ traineeship should be submitted via email ( and in person (except for Portfolio) between February 26th and March 1st, 2024.


General Principles

1. In the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, it is possible to spend a semester abroad at a partner school with which the Magdalena Abakanowicz University of the Arts Poznan has signed an inter-institutional agreement.

The list of partner schools is available online and regularly updated. It is possible to apply for the exchange at a school that has not signed any agreement, however such agreement must be signed with the help of the UAP International Office.

The International Office does not guarantee that the school the applicant is interested in will be willing to cooperate.

2. Both first- (BA) and second-cycle degree (MA) students are eligible to apply. Students are obliged to pay the tuition fee to UAP for the semester they spend abroad.

3. Student mobility cannot take place in the diploma semester.

4. Applications may be submitted by students who in the academic year 2023/2024 are not on dean’s leave.

5. Student mobility for studies should last no longer than 1 semester (at least 2 months). It is possible to extend your stay for an additional semester (only when you start your mobility in the winter semester).

6. In February 2023, candidates can apply for mobilities in the winter and the summer semester of the academic year 2024/2025.

7. Students may apply for an Erasmus mobility more than once at a given level of study, provided that the total duration of mobilities does not exceed the mobility capital of 12 months per level of study.

8. A semester passed at the receiving institution will be recognised at UAP provided that students obtain at least 30 ECTS (unless the study plan for the given semester specifies a different number of mandatory ECTS). Students of semester five at the first-cycle studies and students of semester three at the second-cycle studies who are accepted to the exchange have to enrol at the diploma studio.

9. Participants of Student Mobility for Studies are obliged to carry out a study programme as close as possible to their major at UAP.

10. Students qualified for the mobility who attend Diploma Seminar are obliged to present a written permission of their promoter before starting their mobility.

11. Students qualified for the exchange who decide not to participate are obliged to inform the International Office about their resignation as soon as possible.
