You can first refer to your home university in order to see whether there is an active and funded inter-institutional agreement with the HEI from Serbia. If there is an inter-institutional agreement, you can get relevant information and procedures on how to apply for bachelor, masters or PhD exchanges and which fields of study are supported. Furthermore, you can try finding information at the websites of the HEIs in Serbia – lots of them have some information available, together with direct contact of the International Relation Offices/Erasmus+ coordinators. Also, some of them have separate platforms, such as MobiON – the mobility platform of the University of Belgrade, where you can browse for the Erasmus+ opportunities at this university. You can check other useful sites, such as Study in Serbia portal, where you can search study programmes in English and other languages and available scholarships.
Fixed monthly allowance for studying in Serbia through the Erasmus+ programme is 650 EUR. With that amount, you will provide accommodation (private or in a dorm) and cover other costs you may have (food, health insurance etc.). Travel cost are separately refunded – in some cases, depending on your home university, you will get a paid return ticket. The other possibility is that they will refund travel costs to you afterwards. The maximum of travel cost allowance depends on the distance and is predefined by the Erasmus+ programme.
Prepare for your mobility
Study in Serbia portal can help you find the first information you need to know about visa requirements, studying and living in Serbia. Furthermore, you can use social networks and search for the groups of foreign students currently studying at your future host university – they will for sure offer you some useful advice and share their experiences with you.
Once you get here, the support is ready
Although Serbia may be quite new to you and you probably don’t speak the local language, don’t worry – the support you may need is always available. You can get it directly at your host faculty or university (Erasmus+ coordinators, International Relation Offices), students organizations (especially the ones dealing with foreign students such as local branches of the Erasmus Student Network) and other local organizations (such as Information Centre of the Foundation Tempus in Serbia, offering support and organizing workshops and info sessions available also to foreign students in Serbia).
