The extension of the placement is possible depending  on the actual budget and the 12-month rule. The Erasmus grant does not cover all expenses, students should be prepared for partial  self-financing or looking for other sources.

Awarded Erasmus+ grant: 
The grant will be awarded for full months, but will be recalculated when the participant  makes a Grant Agreement with the university. The grant will be calculated for days and paid to the participant in 2 instalments:

For international students, the conditions of participation in this type of traineeship are not yet clarified. The questions of an extended residence permit in Hungary, as well as the possibility of making health, accident and liability insurance policies valid in foreign countries during the traineeship are not defined yet.

Mode of working:  due to and depending on the pandemic, host companies will offer different types of work: onsite/physical combined with  online, or exclusively online.  Blended mobility means the combination of working in physical presence and online. The concrete mode of working must be declared in the Letter of Acceptance, however it is advised to clarify the details again before the start of the traineeship. Later, even when the pandemic is over and life gets back to normal, blended mobility may remain the mode of working for the long run (depending on the profile of the company and the activities to be done by the trainee).

Consequences of giving  false information:
Submitting false data or documents in the application may lead to serious sanctions, even disqualification from the application round.

Both the application for the Erasmus grant and the arrangements with the host company  require serious  and thorough preparation. Students will face quite a big amount of administrative procedures. Please read and study all available information at the Erasmus homepage and keep permanent contact with the host company. The lack of information will make your preparation very hard.
