Basic information about the Institutional Plan for International Student Mobility – “Free Movers”

The financial contribution from the faculty part of the Institutional Plan for the Support of International Mobility of Students of the Second Faculty of Medicine for the years 2019–2020 (hereinafter referred to as “IP”) may be used only for the realization of study stays, international scientific, research or other activities within approved projects and programs  of the Second Faculty of Medicine, Charles University (hereinafter referred to as “Second Faculty of Medicine”) or Charles University.

One of the main objectives of the IP is to support student exchange and participation of students of the Second Medical Faculty of Charles University in international study and professional events.

Therefore, it is important to point out that financial support from the IP cannot be used for the given event in parallel with another scholarship or financial contribution in which the MEYS also participates! This eliminates, for example, the possibility of co-financing the costs associated with participating in Erasmus + programs or the already allocated Mobility Fund of Charles University.
