We would like to share important information regarding Erasmus+ mobility during coronavirus:


-          If you have already started your student mobility you may decide to continue. If you wish to continue, you need to follow the instructions of the host country/university in order to finish the semester successfully.

-          In case distance learning has been offered by the host university, we recommend that you discuss all details with the host university’s coordinator regarding future exams, availability of transcript and certificate of study/traineeship period, etc. Make sure you gather all the necessary documents in time.

-          Closely follow the latest news about Hungary and the host country and if you wish to return earlier please send us an e-mail (kkilian@metropolitan.hu)


Tips and regulations for your health:

-          Wash your hands thoroughly and follow the health protocols and advice of your host country

-          Maintain social distance and avoid large gatherings, events, and do not stay outside unless shopping for groceries or medicine. Avoiding close personal contact is the easiest way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As coronavirus continues to spread across the globe we would like to inform you that if you wish to discontinue your Erasmus+ mobility, please inform us as soon as possible in order to start the administration process. Please be reminded that the National Agency of Hungary and Budapest Metropolitan University may apply the force majeure clause to activities taking place in any affected areas. This means that you may submit an individual request based on the facts that affected your mobility. We hope your educational path will not be impacted by this and you will be able to have another opportunity at a later stage.

In case of force majeure the following documents should be submitted:


-     Individual request (there is no particular template for this, a written and detailed report signed by you is enough (why you decided to finish your mobility, what were the circumstances, etc.) Make sure to gather all the documents/verification/bills to prove your point! Request for force majeure should be sent to erasmus@metropolitan.hu

-    Based onthe submitted request and documentation, the International Committee of Budapest Metropolitan University and Tempus Public Foundation will make the final decision.

We are trying to be as flexible as possible in this uncertain time but if you have any study-related issues/doubts (such as courses here at METU/curriculum etc.) please consult with the Student Information Centre.


Take care of yourself and stay safe!


Kind regards,


International Directorate
