Tenders in 2023/2024
A student who arranges a practical placement with a foreign coordinator should report this to the International Relations Department. He/she will then be given access to log in via the web application.
The student can access the application by entering his/her personal number (the eight-digit number on the student card – ISIC – under the photo) and the password assigned to him/her when the card is issued.
Unlike study placements, the selection of students is decided by the University abroad and its Erasmus Faculty Coordinator.
If the student receives a confirmed Training Agreement from the foreign university, he/she is eligible for financial support.
Traineeship work plan – Training agreement
The work plan for the placement abroad must correspond to the student’s study programme at the University. Only internships that have an equivalent within the UK study programme can be recognised.
The internship can be compulsory, optional or optional.
The specifics and content of the practical placement should be carefully listed on the web application. This will also complete the training agreement document, which is an integral part of the application form for the practical placement.
The information given here will also appear identically in the practical placement report document. The student prints this form using the online application and has it approved by the study programme guarantor and signed by the Vice-Dean for Student Affairs.
The Application form is automatically generated in .pdf format and can be printed directly from the web application once completed. As with study placements, it is essential to check the requirements of the partner institution, which may require its own forms, particularly regarding accommodation, orientation or language courses, etc.
ATTENTION Application deadlines at partner schools may differ from those at the University of Applied Sciences in Pilsen (!!!).
The partner institution (University) usually informs the student about the acceptance of the work placement by sending back a confirmed application form.
In addition to the signed Training Agreement, the student must submit a “letter of invitation” directly from the workplace where he/she will be doing the internship. Without these documents he/she cannot be granted financial support.
Dean’s decision on the award of a special purpose scholarship
Upon receipt of the application form confirmed by the partner institution and an acceptance letter from the foreign workplace, the student may be awarded a special purpose scholarship to support the placement abroad. The purpose-built scholarship is awarded to the student on the basis of the “Dean’s Decision”. The Faculty Coordinator will prepare a draft of the Dean’s Decision on the award of the special purpose scholarship.

Participation agreement for transferring the special purpose scholarship to the student’s account
The proper use of the scholarship awarded and the conditions for its payment are governed by the Participation Agreement in accordance with the Erasmus+ Qualification Conditions.
The student concludes the Participation Agreement with the UK through the European Office of the Department for International Relations of the RUK in Prague, Ovocný trh 3, 116 36 Prague 1
The contract will be ready for the student’s signature after the Dean’s Decision on the award of the special purpose scholarship is issued – no later than 10 working days before the planned departure for the internship.
In order to print the participation contract, it is necessary to have the EUR account number filled in the online application, where the scholarship will be subsequently transferred and also to have the personal document number indicated.
The student will be informed about the possibility of collecting the Participation Agreement by email to the address indicated in the web application.
As a condition for payment of the scholarship, the following must be submitted:
The decision of the Dean on the award of the special purpose scholarship
Confirmed application form ( Training agreement )
Acceptance letter from the partner institution ( workplace abroad )
Together with one original of the Participation Agreement, the student will also receive
- Confirmation of nomination to the Erasmus+ programme (Erasmus+ Nomination Letter) in English for the authorities (foreign police) abroad.
According to EU rules, it is the student’s obligation to register with the Foreign Police Department in the place where he/she will be studying within 30 days of his/her arrival.
Health and liability insurance
Czech citizens are entitled to health care in the EU and EEA countries according to the EEC Council Regulations 1408/71 and 574/72. However, in any EU country it is necessary to take into account the so-called patient’s deductible.
For these reasons, it is the student’s responsibility to take out insurance for all medical expenses valid for the destination country. Since 1 June 2004, an amendment to the above mentioned Regulations has been in force, which introduces the European Health Insurance Card as proof of entitlement to medical care in the EU and EEA countries.
In the context of a work placement abroad, the student will also take out liability insurance, which is valid for the foreign workplace.
