ŠKODA AUTO University has been a part of the ERASMUS programme since 2005. It is an EU programme focusing on mobility and cooperation in higher education in Europe. The programme also supports cooperation of higher education institutions with foreign companies. In 2014, ŠKODA AUTO University acquired the ERASMUS CHARTER FOR HIGHER EDUCATION 2014-2020.
Every year, thousands of students and academics join the programme. You can be one of them, too. General information about the programme can be found on the NAEP website. Detailed information about individual activities and opportunities for involvement in the programme can be found in the section for students travelling abroad or in person in room B113 in the International Office.
NATIONAL AGENCY FOR EUROPEAN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES (NAEP)
As a part of the Centre for International Services, NAEP coordinates educational programmes of international cooperation. The aim is to create an information system for EU educational programmes and other international activities. NAEP provides information and consulting services related to assigned programmes, organises national and international seminars and conferences, promotes Czech education abroad and publishes information materials.
The NAEP website has practical and up-to-date information about the programme.
ŠKODA AUTO University students can study one or two semesters abroad under the ERASMUS+ programme at one of over sixty partner universities across Europe. In addition to the European mobility programme, students can also travel beyond Europe to one of our partner universities in Asia.
Students who want to try working in other countries and improve their language skills can use internship options offered by ŠKODA AUTO University’s partner companies. The most popular companies from our wide selection include Bentley Motors in the UK or Porsche in Germany, but students can work in foreign companies even outside the automotive industry.
Ambitious students who are after more than one degree can consider the double degree programme, which is currently available in Seinäjoki in Finland and Steyr in Austria. After successful completion of all required courses on one of the universities and graduation, students receive two diplomas – both from their home university and from the partner university abroad.
ŠKODA AUTO University hosts about fifteen foreign students every semester from different universities around the world. Visiting students can choose from courses taught in English across all specialisations while exploring the mysteries of the Czech language. Visiting students can also attend different after-school activities focused on cultural exchange or travels around the Czech Republic.
