General information about academic mobility

Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University offers students, PHD students and staff members to take part in academic mobility programmes

Academic mobility is an opportunity for participants in the educational process to study, teach, train or conduct research in another higher education institution (research institution) in Ukraine (internal mobility) or abroad (international mobility).

International academic mobility is one of the priority areas of IFNMU's activities, opening up great opportunities for participants to deepen their knowledge, professional growth, advanced training, research, and improve their foreign language skills.

IFNMU offers students, PHD students and staff members to gain knowledge, skills and experience at universities in different European countries. The list of educational institutions with which our university cooperates is constantly updated. For the period of participation in the programmes, participants retain their place of study/work.

The International Relations Department of the University provides consultations for those wishing to participate in the programmes, coordinates and controls international academic mobility.

Forms of academic mobility:

  • Study under academic mobility programmes;
  • Language training;
  • Scientific training;
  • Participation in joint projects;
  • Teaching;
  • Scientific research;
  • Advanced training.

Visa information

According to the rules of visa-free travel to the EU, Ukrainians can stay in the territory of the European Union for up to 90 days within 180 days without visas. If the mobility period is less than 90 days, the participant may decide whether to apply for a visa. If the mobility period exceeds 90 days, a visa is required.

Insurance for travelling abroad

The obligation of obtaining insurance for travelling abroad to participate in an academic mobility programme is determined by inter-institutional agreements. If insurance is optional, a student, postgraduate student or staff member can obtain it on their own, if they consider it essential.

Academic mobility programmes

Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the European Union's initiative for global collaboration in the realms of education, youth, and sports. Its primary objective is to facilitate the holistic growth of individuals within the EU and globally, fostering sustainable development, creating high-quality employment opportunities, and promoting social unity. Furthermore, it aims to stimulate innovation, support European identity and encourage active civic engagement. The programme achieves these goals by offering various learning and academic exchange initiatives for both students and young professionals, supporting collaborative projects and partnerships, facilitating strategic development and cooperation, fostering professional networks, and providing open educational resources.

Mobility is a central aspect of the Erasmus+ programme, encompassing various opportunities for individuals and organizations to travel, study, train, or work abroad within Europe and beyond. The mobility actions under Erasmus+ include student mobility for higher education, staff mobility for teaching and training, mobility for young people, youth workers, mobility for learners and staff in vocational education and training (VET) and virtual exchanges in higher education and youth. These mobility actions promote intercultural learning, professional development, and collaboration among participants from diverse backgrounds and sectors.

NAWA - FORTHEM

The National Agency for Academic Exchange (Narodowa Agencja Wymiany Akademickiej – NAWA) was established in 2017 with the aim of supporting and developing international relations in the fields of science, education, and research in Poland. NAWA plays a significant role in promoting the internationalization of Polish science by facilitating international scientific cooperation and academic exchange programs. Its initiatives include scholarships, grants, and other forms of support to encourage collaboration and mobility among researchers, academics, and students both within Poland and with international partners. This agency plays a crucial role in fostering knowledge exchange and advancing scientific development in Poland.

FORTHEM is the alliance of nine different universities from nine European countries that are uniting their efforts and networks to establish a lasting multilateral and European cooperation environment. The member universities of the Alliance include University of Opole (Opole, Poland), University of Burgundy (Dijon, France), Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Mainz, Germany), University of Jyväskylä (Jyväskylä, Finland), University of Agder (Kristiansand, Norway), University of Latvia (Riga, Latvia), University of Valencia (Valencia, Spain), Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu (Sibiu, Romania), University of Palermo (Palermo, Italy).

Since 2023, the University of Opole has been cooperating with the Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University and other Ukrainian universities within the framework of the NAWA – FORTHEM project “Supporting the cooperation of the University of Opole with Ukrainian universities within the FORTHEM Alliance”. The aim of the cooperation is the academic mobility of students and staff not only for educational purposes, but also to establish contacts with FORTHEM member universities and to get acquainted with the activities of the Alliance.
