Study abroad is at the Faculty of International Relations an integral part of the study, both at the bachelor and master level. A wide variety of partner universities along with a high number of outgoing students create a unique position within the Czech educational system. The Faculty supports outgoing students organizationally, as well as financially.
Majority of all semesters abroad is based on the exchange system. Its idea is an exchange of students between partner universities. When e.g. Prague University of Economics and Business sends 5 of its students to Copenhagen Business School, the partner institution in Copenhagen sends 5 students to Prague.
There are two ways of financing:
- Through Erasmus+ funds (students get a scholarship from the EU) – exchange program within Europe
- Through the Scholarship fund of VŠE (students get a scholarship from the University) – exchange program outside of Europe
