What is Erasmus About?

The Erasmus (or European Region Action Scheme for the mobility of University Students, to use its full name) programme was established in 1987 to increase student and staff mobility throughout Europe while promoting transnational cooperation between European institutions. Under the Erasmus programme, students have the opportunity to study at a partner institution as part of their degree programme and receive full credits for the period abroad as an integral part of their overall degree. Since the 2008-09 academic year, students also have the opportunity to work at a European enterprise under the Erasmus programme. Currently, over 180,000 students participate in the Erasmus programme every year.
Staff can also participate in the programme through short-term teaching and training placements.

How does it work?

Universities and colleges sign reciprocal agreements through which the partner institutions agree upon the movement of staff and students.

Unicorn College as Part of Erasmus Network

Today, 31 European countries participate in the Erasmus programme, with each institution having to apply for an Erasmus University Charter from the European Commission. The European Commission's Directorate General for Education and Culture has granted Unicorn College an Erasmus Charter for the period from 2014-2017.


The following information is for all international students attending Unicorn College.
Long-term stay in the Czech Republic (more than 3 months) – for non-EU citizens:
If you’re a citizen of a Non-European Union country and will be studying in the Czech Republic for more than 3 months, you’ll need a long-term visa.  Please contact the nearest Czech embassy or consulate in your country to get information on how to apply for a Czech visa.
Since the process may take a while, we recommend that you start the visa application process as soon as you get your official acceptance letter from Unicorn College. This letter provides proof that you’re registered in the programme and specifies the dates you will need to physically be in Prague.
The necessary documents may differ from country to country, however, your passport and the official acceptance letter are always required.  If you’re a citizen of an EU country, you normally don’t need a visa to study in the Czech Republic for up to 6 months.
When in doubt, please contact the nearest Czech embassy or consulate in your country for information on whether you will need a visa.  It is your responsibility to obtain a visa before your arrival in the Czech Republic.
Short-term stay in the Czech Republic (less than 3 months) – for Non-European Union citizens:
If you study at Unicorn College for less than 3 months (Summer programme), whether or not you will need a visa depends on your country of citizenship.  Please contact the nearest Czech embassy or consulate in your country for information regarding your visa requirement well ahead of your arrival date in the Czech Republic.
Please consult the Welcome Guide for more information on the types of visas to apply for.
