Yes, you can apply. Of course, you will only be able to go abroad if you are accepted to the master’s programme at Corvinus.
Students are required to finance their studies at Corvinus during their exchange studies abroad if they are self-financed. In addition, the general university application conditions apply, no further conditions apply. However, applicants should be aware that the scholarship will most likely cover only part of the actual costs incurred, the difference being financed by the student.
For the first five places, you must choose only the field corresponding to your study programme, for the other five places you can choose from other fields of study, according to the fields of study indicated in MOBility Manager. Any field that is included in your studies can be taken into account, i.e. you can also look for a place that is not fully related to yours but there are compulsory, recommended, or elective subjects in that area which can be can be included in your main training programme. It is recommended that you include as many relevant subjects as possible in your study plan for your semester abroad. With this you can make sure you can finish your studies according to the original curriculum.
Make sure to set up your preference list that comprises maximum 10 universities.
Once the application has been submitted, the preference list cannot be changed. The applicant must accept the higher education institution that has been selected for them based on their score. If you do not wish to do so, you may withdraw from the mobility. This way you will be able to re-apply in the next application period only. It is possible to change the order only before the student clicks on the “Submit my application” button.
Write a cover letter only to the first 3 universities you included in your preference list.
The cover letter must be written in the language of your studies abroad. You may choose a German university, but if the language of instruction is English, the cover letter should also be written in English. The document should also include specific details regarding why you have chosen the university and what subjects you will be able to take there that fit into your original programme of study.
No. The cover letter must be attached to the application. It will be assessed by the relevant Corvinus supervisors, not by the partner university.
This is thoroughly explained in the call for applications.
The points are calculated based on the cumulative grade point average weighted by the number of credits exported from Neptun. The grade point average in the semester of application is also included.
Frequented places require a higher score. The number of applications to a particular university and the number of places available determine the entry point threshold for a university, so this varies from year to year.
In the comment column of the partner list. A B2 level complex (intermediate written and oral) language proficiency exam certificate is a basic requirement for application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to decide whether their language skills are sufficient to follow the classes. Some partners have higher requirements (e.g., C1 or IELTS/TOEFL, TOIC, etc.). The language proficiency exam result must be valid for the whole mobility period, even if this means two consecutive language tests.
Only those uploaded to Mobility Manager can be considered during scoring. Neptun will not be checked, so it does not matter what is uploaded there. If the document expires before the departure date, it is mandatory to take and pass a new exam before the departure date. Please note that language proficiency documents not uploaded in MOB will not be taken into consideration during the calculation of points.
They must be uploaded to MOBility Manager
A B2 level complex (intermediate written and oral) language proficiency exam certificate or an equivalent official school-leaving exam certificate is a basic requirement for application, so it must be submitted during the application period. The application is invalid without these documents.
Yes. The institute organising the language exam may issue a temporary certificate of the successful exam.
Yes, if it is stated in the annex of the school leaving exam certificate that the language examination result is equivalent to a complex language examination of at least B2. level.
The 21-credit rule requires a minimum of 21 credits (excluding thesis seminars and compulsory internships) to be completed abroad. Courses taken at Corvinus based on a preferential study plan (up to 4 courses may be taken plus seminar and internship) are not involved in the 21 credits to be completed abroad but may be involved the 21 credits required for graduation. Foreign language courses may be involved in the 21 credits in the semester abroad.
Students who are going on a mobility in the last semester of their studies should be aware that they will only be able to take their final examinations in the semester following the semester abroad, as credits and marks obtained abroad can only be counted in the following semester.
First check whether it is available on the host university’s website. If you can only request it by e-mail, it is very important that you include the exact course code and name of the course in your request.
30 ECTS must be taken. However, at least 21 ECTS must be obtained and recognized by Corvinus.
You can apply for the funding of an additional semester at Corvinus, but you are not given the grant automatically; it has conditions. You can find out more here.
Please visit the website of the foreign university. Two subjects may be equivalent if there is 75% of overlap between their course materials Professors of the relevant subject at Corvinus can help you to decide this.
For elective subjects, it is not necessary that the subject is included in the curriculum. Any subject taken abroad which is not included in the curriculum but which the student successfully completes will be accepted as an elective subject at Corvinus.
Please check which courses are offered at the host university of your choice and how many of them fit in your curriculum. You will then need to consult the professors of the particular course, who will decide whether the course in question is equivalent to a certain Corvinus course.
There is little chance that you will find a university where the course offer corresponds 100% to your compulsory courses.
Yes. However, if you are a self-financed student, you must pay the tuition fee as well.
Please submit your withdrawal ASAP so we may assign your place to someone else!
You cannot extend your studies from spring to autumn semester; however, extension from fall to spring is possible upon request.
No, because according to the Call for Applications at Corvinus the international language certificate that we forward to the partner can only be up to 2 years old. For further information, see the Call for Applications.

However, in case it will be necessary the University will also be able to offer support to the same extent from other sources for those participating in international part-time courses at Erasmus+ partner universities.
