Students who take the internship will receive an additional grant of 100 EUR / month.
Students from less-favored backgrounds (other than special needs students)
Allowance for students from less-favored backgrounds is not paid out of Erasmus + funding. Funds for the supplement under this title will be provided through the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport. Students from less-favored environments receive an allowance higher than the aforementioned allowances, regardless of the type of mobility (ie, a less-favored student who goes to practice receives a higher allowance; the student receives only one allowance).
The eligibility of a student to receive an incentive for the socially disadvantaged is evidenced by proof that this is a valid decision of the Social Work Center stating that the student himself or a member of the common household receives a state scholarship, social security allowance, child benefit, financial social assistance or is entitled to large family allowance (if the decision of the Center for Social Work does not read the student’s name, a certificate from the household record stating that the student lives in a shared household with a person entitled to one of the social rights must also be provided) it is necessary to submit some other document or proof (eg a certificate of the application for the Social Work Center Certificate), proving that he has applied to the Social Work Center for a certificate of the Social Work Center (the Decision of the Social Work Center must be submitted by the student subsequently). In the case of foreign students, other relevant evidence must be provided to show that the student comes from a socially disadvantaged background.

a traineeship (work placement) abroad in an enterprise or any other relevant workplace (duration: 2-12 months)
The student must meet certain general and minimum requirements:
During his stay at the institution holding the Erasmus + Charter, the student must have a student status, which means that he must be at least a 1st year student to carry out training mobility and at least a 2nd year student to carry out study exchange mobility.
They may choose to have an institution holding an Erasmus + charter (for study) or a company (for training) in the territory of one of the participating countries, and the home institution must be the holder of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).
Before leaving for a study exchange, the student must sign the Study Agreement document and agree with the coordinator, mentor, professors and other possible involved persons at the home institution on the content of the study and the recognition of the completed obligations.
Before leaving for training, he signs a placement contract and a Training Arrangement document.
NEW: A student can complete up to 12 months of mobility per academic cycle and can also combine both mobility activities.
The Erasmus + student status is generally equivalent to that of the host country student. The host country may not charge the student a fee.
IMPLEMENTATION OF STUDY CHANGE AND TRAINING
It is mandatory to apply for the current contract year.
A student applies to the TENDER for the current contract year and is selected on the basis of criteria that the institution adheres to. These criteria, in addition to the general criteria already contractually established by the ERASMUS program, may include:
motivation letter (CVI, references, short description, reasons for applying, student’s expectations…);
a completed study plan for studying abroad or a completed study abroad training plan; if this is not yet possible – for example, if the destination is not yet known – a note should be attached stating that the destination is not known yet;
knowledge of the language (certificates, marks obtained from a foreign language within the framework of full-time study obligations); compliance of the chosen field of exchange with the educational program of the Higher Vocational College of the Technical School Center Maribor;
exchange costs (distance of each destination, cost estimation by country according to the prescribed scale);
evidence of such student’s study activity (proof that the student has passed at least 1 exam in the current school year or active participation in the college’s educational program);
information about the student’s academic achievement – average grade (only if the previous set of criteria does not reach the appropriate set of students);
students who will have an agreed exchange on a timely basis have priority in their choice;
priority is given to students who have never withdrawn from the call for tenders and / or refused the destination offered by the home institution;
priority is given to students who haven’t taken part in any of the Erasmus mobility projects.
Preparation for the implementation of an Erasmus exchange
The student must:
sign the specific contractual documentation before going abroad;
(something that is really advisable) gather all the necessary information on the practical experience of other students who have already visited this destination (with the time and financially optimal trip, the favorable accommodation), and inquire about the lifestyle and specifics of living in the chosen destination.
Execution of exchange
The student must:
upon arrival in the host country, unconditionally report his arrival to the coordinator of the home institution and remain in contact with him or her throughout the exchange;
submit all necessary agreed documentation to the Erasmus Coordinator, upon completion of the study abroad program, within the time limit specified in the contract;
fulfill all contractually agreed obligations;
In case the student fails to fulfill the contractually agreed obligations, he / she must return the mobility grant, unless there are objective reasons for this.
The student may also obtain financial assistance to cover the cost of the exchange and request co-financing of the costs through an Erasmus + scholarship. In doing so, he or she retains all the scholarship resources to which he or she is entitled or receives in the home country.
