Application

1. Find a traineeship place

Look for an traineeship place and if you find one,ask for an informal letter/email regarding that the company/placement you chose is willing to accept you as an intern for at least 2 months.

2. Contact the faculty Erasmus coordinator

Contact your coordinator after you have a traineeship place or informal letter/email! They will inform you regarding application documents.

3. Evaluation (Professional)

In case of a positive evaluation of your application professionally, the faculty coordinator contacts the Erasmus center (otugoing@uni-obuda.hu). After this, they contact you regarding next steps and they start to evaluate your application formally, too.

What does a positive professional evaluation mean? It means that your application has been approved professionally and you have the temporary Erasmus status.

4. Erasmus status certificate

The Erasmus center can create this kind of certificate. If you need this for your Visa, please contact the International Office via email after the faculty coordinator contacts the Erasmus center and you received the positive evaluation of your application: otugoing@uni-obuda.hu

Important: the certificate does not mean that your application is approved and you will get the scholarship, but you can start to organise your internship and visa. The scholarship will be awarded only after your application is approved formally, too. Your application is closed when it meets the criteria of the Erasmus program formally and professionally.

5. Evaluation (Formally)

After you receive the positive professional evaluation from your faculty Erasmus coordinator he/she will send us the result of your application too. After that we will contact you to begin with the formal evaluation.

What does a formal evaluation mean? It means that the International Office will check if your application complies with Rrasmus rules.

After you receive the positive evaluation you will receive further information about concluding the contract.
