All rights and obligations of exchange students are described in the Erasmus Student Charter.
Each student receives a grant which covers partly the costs of the stay abroad. Students going on exchange under the ERASMUS programme do not pay any university fees (tuition, registration, examination or access to the laboratory, library and other facilities offered to local students) in the hosting/partner university.
In certain cases, mobile students may be required to pay small fees such as insurance, student unions, use of miscellaneous material such as photocopies, laboratory products on the same basis as these are charged to local students at the host institution. Details of any such costs should be provided on the host institution's website.
Fees may only be charged in the case of the students being registered in more than one university in the context of a joint master's degree.
Each institution should produce a course catalogue, available on its website, which is updated at least on an annual basis, containing three main parts: information on the institution, information on programmes (general description and description of individual course units) and general information for students.
The Institution should clearly indicate in which language the course units are taught and specify to what extent they are open to mobile students (indicating any prerequisites when applicable, such as the minimum linguistic level for example). The minimum should be at least to indicate clearly the course units not taught in the host language and those which are not open to mobile students.
