The EEA Grants Programme offers support to students from WUT’s partner universities in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein to pursue a study mobility in Timisoara. This is possible through mobility projects implemented between any higher education institutions in the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, namely Donor Countries) and their partners in Beneficiary Countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia).
The International Office at your home university has all the information you need regarding: available opportunities/subject areas for mobilities, selection process and grant value.
Your grant will consist of: subsistence component + travel component
Subsistence (for students) for mobilities from Donor States to RO
1000 EUR/month (for incomplete months the grant will be calculated by multiplying the number of days from that specific month with 1/30 of the monthly grant- 33 EUR/day)
The study mobility can vary from 3 to 12 months/cycle of study, but we reccommend you pursue a mobility of one semester or one academic year.
Courses succesfully followed at WUT will be recognized by your university based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
